Hot air brushes are a hot new trend in the world of women’s hair and fashion. These handy hot air brushes are hybrid round brushes and blow dryers. They look like round brushes, but they blow out hot air in order to dry your hair while you smooth and shape it. A hot air brush allows you to dry and style your hair into a neat blowout–in just one step and using just one tool. It cuts time out of your daily styling and adds convenience to your morning routine. Plus, it’s much easier to store and travel with a single tool rather than multiple hair-styling tools.
The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer and the Dyson Airwrap are two of the most popular and highly-rated hot air brushes that are currently on the market. If you’re interested in getting a hot air brush to streamline your own daily styling routine, keep reading to learn more about how these two popular hot air brushes compare to each other in the areas that matter most.

Using heated styling tools on a daily basis can wreak havoc on your hair. The high temperatures of heated styling tools can cause severe damage to your hair, which in turn leads to dryness, split ends, breakage, etc.
Both the Revlon and Dyson hot air brushes exceed expectations in the realm of heat protection. Because these hot air brushes dry and style your hair in just one step, using one of these brushes in your daily styling routine causes less damage to your hair than using a blow dryer and a flat iron, curling iron, or other heated styling tool.
The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer features innovative airflow vents that are embedded within this hot air brush’s head. These airflow vents allow for more even drying coverage and cut down on drying time, which causes less heat damage to your hair. This hot air brush is also equipped with ceramic technology that further reduces heat damage by ensuring even heat distribution over a larger surface area of your hair.
The Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler offers intelligent heat control. This advanced hot air brush measures the air temperature over 40 times per second and adjusts the temperature of the hot air brush accordingly in response. This intelligent heat control prevents the Dyson hot air brush from burning your hair and helps you avoid heat damage while styling.
Heat and Speed Settings
The different heat and speed settings on hot air brushes allow you to take the reigns and maintain better control over your styling routine. Both the Revlon and Dyson hot air brushes come with multiple heat and speed settings that allow you to personalize your daily drying and styling experience.
The Revlon One-Step hot air brush features just one air speed but three heat settings–cool, low, and high. Controlling these heat settings is easy with the rotating switch at the base of this hot air brush that controls the temperature of the air the brush emits.
The Dyson Airwrap hot air brush offers three air speeds–high, medium, and low–and three heat settings–high, medium, and cool. Its wide variety of heat and speed settings allows this advanced hot air brush to expertly accommodate a broad range of different hair types and textures while minimizing heat damage.
Both the Revlon and Dyson hot air brushes feature a cool setting. The Dyson brush features an easy and convenient cold shot button that blasts your hair with cool air. Use this cold shot option at the end of your styling routine to add shine to your hair and set your style to help it stay put all day long.
The cooling option on the Revlon hot air brush is available as a standard setting alongside this brush’s low and high heat settings. It can also be used to set and add shine to your hair after you have finished styling it.
The Revlon One-Step hot air brush comes with a single attachment: an all-in-one, non-detachable 4.25″ barrel brush head. This brush’s barrel is an oval shape with round edges in order to smooth out your hair and round its ends with a voluminous finish. This brush head features a combination of nylon pin and tufted boar bristles that grip your hair to smooth and detangle it while adding shine.
The Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler comes with seven different attachments: two 1.2″ Airwrap barrels, two 1.6″ Airwrap barrels, a firm smoothing brush, a soft smoothing brush, a round volumizing brush, and an innovative pre-styling dryer. All of these attachments style your hair in different ways.
The 1.2″ barrels help create loose and relaxed curls and waves while the 1.6″ barrels create more voluminous curls and waves. The firm smoothing brush is useful for smoothing frizzy hair, while the soft smoothing brush effectively smoothes fine hair, and the round volumizing brush adds volume to fine and flat hair types. The pre-styling dryer attachment preps your hair for styling by quickly transforming it from wet to damp.
