When it comes to cutting-edge, unique beauty tools you didn鈥檛 know you needed, the list seems to be never-ending. Every time we turn around, there鈥檚 a new must-have item on the market, from rotating curling irons that spin with the touch of a button to a $300 hair brush that heats up so you can brush and straighten at the same time鈥 what?!? We staged a major review sesh that included a wide range of hair types (and even a bro with luscious locks) to put this multitasking device to the test. Is this genius, or another marketing ploy to make you think you need yet another beauty tool? Here鈥檚 how it went down!

The Device

DafniBrush2

DAFNI Hair Straightening Ceramic Brush ($300): In a nutshell, this brush will straighten and tame flyaways, frizz and waves while leaving your hair smooth and shiny 鈥 and all you have to do is brush your hair.

Rebecca

PRO: This is very convenient! I don鈥檛 have to comb and straighten at the same time, and it cuts out a step. I love that you can straighten without losing all the volume!

CON: It doesn鈥檛 straighten the ends as well as I鈥檇 like.

FINAL THOUGHTS: This tool is great and I love how easy it is to use.

WOULD YOU BUY: Yeah, for $20.

Beth

DafniBrushBeth

PRO: I鈥檓 literally just brushing my hair right now, so that鈥檚 cool. I rarely wear my hair straight, but if I did, this is nice to just brush through it!

CON: I feel like it needs more tension 鈥 it鈥檚 hard to get my hair straight fully. And it鈥檚 hot! I just burned myself!

FINAL THOUGHTS: I like it 鈥 it took about 5 minutes!

WOULD YOU BUY: Not for $300!

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-1

Victoria

You should know, I don鈥檛 own a hairbrush, or a hair straightener. Soooo鈥︹

DafniBrushVictoria

PRO: Woowwwwww, it鈥檚 actually working!! Oh my gosh! Straight but still has a lot of volume! I like this, because a straightener makes it too flat.

CON: I feel like it needs to be hotter! The tips aren鈥檛 getting as straight as I鈥檇 like. Also, I keep turning it off by accident.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I would totally save up to buy this! I鈥檝e NEVER had it this easy straightening my hair. It鈥檚 been over a year since my hair has looked like this!

WOULD YOU BUY: I would actually pay the money for this, but could you get me one for free, Misty?

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-10

Caitlin

DafniBrushCaytlin

PRO: It definitely gives more volume than a flat iron. It鈥檚 nice not having to use two hands/tools. The key is to go really slow.

CON: It鈥檚 frustrating because I want the bottoms more flat and straight. I鈥檓 not getting the satisfaction of clamping it together. It鈥檚 making it frizzy!

FINAL THOUGHTS: I could use this as a touch-up tool, maybe to smooth down quickly before heading out. But not to flat iron my whole head.

WOULD YOU BUY: Yes, I鈥檇 buy it for $20. EFFFF that to the $300 cost.

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-2

Ashley P.

DafniBrushPerlman

PRO: I mean, two in one! Anything that will make my routine go faster. I鈥檓 digging it. It鈥檚 nice. It straightens but still gives you volume.

CON: I can鈥檛 get the ends as straight as I鈥檇 like.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I really like it! It鈥檚 easy, but don鈥檛 touch it 鈥 it鈥檚 hot. If I had one, I鈥檇 use this daily because it鈥檚 so easy, and I鈥檓 gonna brush my hair anyway. It feels good, and I just want to keep doing it.

WOULD YOU BUY: I鈥檇 buy it for $100 or so, but no WAY to $300.

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-5

Micaela

DafniBrushMicala

PRO: It鈥檚 working better than I thought it would. I like that I can still give it some shape, and it doesn鈥檛 feel like it鈥檚 too flat. I like that I can get right up to my scalp.

CON: I鈥檓 a little concerned that it鈥檚 pulling a bit. I really don鈥檛 like brushing my hair too much.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, I like it.

WOULD YOU BUY: I鈥檇 maybe pay under $100 if I did buy it.

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-4

Marisa

鈥淚 haven鈥檛 used a brush since fifth grade 鈥 I use my fingers.鈥

DafniBrushMarisa

PRO: Woowwwwww! Squeeeek! Very nice! SO EASY. It鈥檚 making my hair so much smoother.

CON: Price.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I would use it for sure! I would use it before going out or even daily. I don鈥檛 like to use too many heated tools because they鈥檙e damaging.

WOULD YOU BUY: I鈥檇 pay $30.

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-3

Tania

Beauty_Hair_DAFNI_Straightener_122

PRO: I feel like I have more shape than when I use a flat iron, and this is so easy to use. I like this better than a flat iron because I have two tools in one here.

CON: None. I love it.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I鈥檇 use it every time I washed and dried my hair.

WOULD YOU BUY: I鈥檇 pay $70 or so.

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-9

Sean

鈥淚 can鈥檛 stop brushing my hair with this thing!鈥

DafniBrushSean

PRO: It鈥檚 definitely making it straight. If I ever was going to straighten my hair, I鈥檇 prefer this over a straightener. This is easier and more manageable, and I already brush my hair, so at least it鈥檚 two in one.

CON: Just a learning curve for me because this is new.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I definitely have a bob now. I could actually wear my hair down if I had this. When my hair is curly, I need to put it up. When you put it up, it looks a little cleaner.

WOULD YOU BUY: I鈥檇 pay $60.

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-8

Ashley R.

DafniBrushReed

PRO: My hair feels nice, fluffy and full. I like that I鈥檓 brushing it and smoothing it at the same time. My hair does look better after using it.

CON: Nothing, it鈥檚 just not something I would use.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Not really a device I鈥檇 use or buy. I鈥檓 not a good example because I鈥檓 more low maintenance. I鈥檇 rather use a curling iron.

WOULD YOU BUY: No, way too much money.

Hair-Straightener-Before-After-7

The Overall Consensus

DafniBrushFinals

Seven thumbs up! Not bad out of ten, eh? The number one takeaway is that this brush leaves your hair way more voluminous than most flat irons, and it鈥檚 really easy to use and doesn鈥檛 get too hot 鈥 which is less damaging to your locks! The number one complaint with this device is the cost, for sure. Good thing you can find a used one on Amazon Prime for half the price!

There you have it, y鈥檃ll. Hopefully this has helped you to decide if this is your next big beauty product splurge. The team had a really good time testing this out, and I had even more fun watching everyone give it a go. Ultimately, I think this is a great device, and as a hair artist, I love having it on set here at B+C headquarters to use when I need to do touch ups for the gals on photo shoots.
