Handle Construction

The handle Construction on this brush is completely amazing. It is a silicone composite with a slight texture towards the barrel for better grip.

Handle Fit and Feel

The fit and feel in your hand and as your working is really like no other for a professional stylist or someone who wants professional results. In short you feel like you are in control because the handle fits to your hand and assures you that you are working with the best quality available. It "feels right" in your hand.



About the Company

The Denman brand was established in 1938 with its head office based in Northern Ireland UK. Through the years Denman has become known as the “hairdressers’ hairbrush” & the professional’s choice with endorsements from many premier stylists. Our product range includes our Classic Styling range, which was used by Vidal Sassoon in his hair revolution of the 1960’s, through to ThermoCeramic brushes, paddle, curling, grooming brushes & many more.

What is it supposed to DO?

The hourglass shaped barrel 'hugs' the contour of the head and provides extra volume and root-lift. Excellent for styling short to mid-length hair.

How does the product feel when you use it?

When you start using this brush the handle feels great in your hands but the bristles are designed to feel great on the scalp as well. It grips the hair well and never seemed to tug or tighten needlessly.

How does the packaging look and hold up?

The Brush looks great, classic black and orange styling just looks cool, modern and professional.

We put it through the paces!

You know once we started working with this brush honestly we did not want to put it down. We kept finding different ways to use it and play with it. The ceramic heated up evenly and really gave the air some great movement on the DHH2 Medium, we also love the larger version a lot.

Peter Anthony and his friends share tricks of the trade!

One of the tricks with all brushes is to get the cool shot on your dryer involved. You want to cool off the hair when working with it and especially when using round ceramic center brushes.We tightened this lightly in the hair and then once cooled we "dropped the brush" meaning we took all the tension and let the hair easily slip from the brush to retain the curl and movement we just placed in.

Products you will need to complete the experience

Obviously you will need several different types of brushes when doing your hair as they all give different results based on desire of style and the length and texture of your hair. We used this in combination with the Squargonomics and the and the Medium Paddle Boar Bristle to accomplish a real "retro feel".

Peter Anthony shares his last thoughts on the product

There are not many brushes I have this much praise for but this brush is a MUST in any collection. It is amazing and I will never give mine up.
