      Makes for a great gift

      I recently received the Head Jog Brush Gift Set, as a birthday present from my Auntie. Although I didn't particularly ask for anything in particular for my birthday, I was really delighted to receive this as I do like anything hair and make-up related!

      The gift set contains 4 different brushes, and is contained within a plastic drawstring bag, which has lilac mesh detailing on the top, almost in the style of a gift bow, so it's a very nice touch, especially given it was a present. I imagine the bag could just as easily be used for storing other items to, as with it being plastic it is also waterproof.

      The gift set contains 3 different sized barrel brushes and then a paddle brush. I was pleased with the quality of these brushes, as they are incredibly well made.

      The Barrel Brushes: The set contains 3 different sized barrel brushes, which have black easy grip handles and plastic bristles. If you don't know what a barrel brush is, primarily they are used for blow drying the hair, especially when trying to achieve a sleek look or to create volume. The metal body allows for the heat to circulate, and then the bristles then comb through the hair when blow drying. I have found them invaluable when drying my own hair, as it is quite thick and my own hairdresser also uses a barrel brush on my hair after a cut or colour. There are 3 different sizes included in this gift set, 1 medium sized brush and 2 varying smaller brushes. The smaller brushes would be more ideal if you have shorter or thinner hair, as I personally prefer the medium barrel brush for my long and thick hair.

      The Paddle brush: This a brush more suited to everyday use, again particularly as I have long hair! The brush is in a gorgeous shade of purple, and is very sleek and well made. It has plastic bristles, which I prefer opposed to the metal bristles you can sometimes find on paddle brushes as they can be a little scratchy against your scalp. It is also quite a wide paddle brush, as the actual brush part is about 5 inches in length and about 3 inches wide. This made it ideal for everyday use as it covers a large area with very little effort, and what with the soft plastic bristles I find this glides through my hair with ease.

      As this was a gift I had to research the price, and found this set retails for around £16. I would say this is an excellent price for the brushes you receive, as they are very well made, salon quality brushes. Also, I have bought barrel and paddle brushes before and they are surprisingly expensive. My Vidal Sassoon barrel brush was about £10, so to get 4 brushes, that are also in a set so match up is an added bonus.

      I would definitely recommend this set as a present, and also if you wanted to invest in some new hair brushes. My only qualm perhaps, is I do prefer a slightly larger barrel brush for my hair than the medium one included in this set. Although I intend to get plenty of use out of these barrel brushes, as my hair tends to go a bit flat I have to really work at getting the height in it which can only be achieved with a slightly larger barrel brush. Never the less, I was really pleased with this brush set and it's definitely a gift I would recommend.
