Nature takes beauty to a whole different level. Summer's in Minnesota are gorgeous and sometimes I just can't get enough of the scenery. I went with my husband to go "frisbee golfing" today...and I was blown away by the sky, and fields, flowers, and critters...everything is just so intricate, so unique and beautiful.
Today, I'd like to start my post with a verse.
1 Peter 3:3-4
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.
I never thought I would own so many hair brushes. There was a time in my life that I did not understand the importance of a brush. I thought... I should be able to comb through my hair with my fingers...that is enough. But, boy was I wrong. Hair brushes make a world a difference. They make you look more groomed, polished, and put together. The RIGHT hair brush can take your hair from looking average to looking like you stepped out of an expensive salon.
The brush company Spornette was kind enough to send me a pretty good sampling of some of their best hair brushes. Here are some photos:
So, I have a confession....I have never had this many hair brushes in my life. But really, have any of you?? Since I had all these options I learned a few things about what I like in a hair brush and what is good for my type of hair, which is long and a thin to medium in texture.
- I like round brushes. I feel like they give me the best "blowouts". I can curl the ends of my hair or use the brush hto get my hair really straight.
- I like boar bristles or a combination of boar plus synthetic. This seems to help me get a better "grip" on my fine hair ...plus the boar bristles help to get a very straight smooth style.
- I prefer a vented barrel. This allow for rapid drying and less heat damage on the hair.
This brush was my favorite of the group of brushes I used. It had the boar bristles I like, it was round and also hourglass shaped which fits the contours of your head, plus it had a nice black and tan sleek design. I liked that this brush looked "expensive" and also worked great for my hair. What could have made it better was that ventilated core that would prevent heat damage.
Another brush I thought was really cool and would work great for bangs, thin hair or quick styling was this tiny rectangular brush.
I found this little guy to be great when you're putting your hair in a sleek ponytail or straightening your bangs. I also think this would be great on short thin hair, chin length or a little below.
Spornette has SO MANY different brushes. You will just have to go to the website and see for yourself, www.spornette.com You can also find Spornette brushes in one of my favorite beauty supply stores, Ulta.
And,Spornette actually get's its name from its creator, Walter Sporn who started the brand in the 1950's.
Oh, and the prices of these brushes..well, my favorite brush, the Provo round brush is only $15. That's a really good price for a boar bristle brush if you ask me!
Disclaimer: Spornette sent me these brushes on a review basis. I am not affiliated with Spornette nor was I paid for this review...this is my honest feedback.
