Boar-Bristle Brushes: A Prickly Path to Hair Perfection
Many stylists will use a boar-bristle brush during blowout sessions. Learn why they turn to this natural tool with Groupon's quick guide to boar bristles.
Boar-bristle brushes work as sort of a public transit system of the head, transporting natural oils from the roots down to the ends of the hair and thereby a healthy shine throughout your locks. This has the added benefit of fending off static electricity and balloon-animal herds. The motion of the bristles can also fight frizz by sealing up cuticles against outside moisture, making them a go-to tool for blowouts. And their texture contains microscopic scales, which can yank dirt and other contaminants away from stands as you brush. (For this reason, boar-bristle brushes need a little more cleaning than synthetic hair tools do.)
Tufts of all-natural boar bristle—taken from the skin of boars, and often sheared or just collected after shedding from living farm animals—are ideal for hair that's of fine or medium thickness, though a mix of boar and nylon bristles can help tackle tough tangles in thicker hair. Although high-end models can set you back more than $100 (and up to $150 for a coveted Mason Pearson brush), it's not difficult to find them at a drugstore or beauty supply shop starting at around $10.
Bellissimo Salon and Spa
Bellissimo Salon and Spa is steeped in tradition. Owner Claudine Severa—a lifelong resident of the Bohemia–Oakdale area—founded the day spa more than 20 years ago, and she and her staff continue to passionately serve their clients. Even the decor exudes a stately, parlor-like ambiance, complete with a dark-wood reception desk, a Victorian armchair, and wooden frames around each styling mirror. Within these surrounds, the team members embrace contemporary trends and modern products as they help beautify visitors from head to toe. In addition to tidying up hairdos, the stylists can use highlights or perms to help invent dynamic new looks. Mani-pedis keep fingers and toes looking neat and trim, and waxing sessions remove unwanted stubble and especially stubborn mustard stains.
