I know what you mean with salons!! THey're great at hair, but not at teaching. I hate round brushes because they pull out and break too much hair but they're much easier to get hair straight. BUt seriously, this guy at the salon, got my bang frickin straight with just a paddle brush, didn't even need a flat iron. But for me, the paddle brush is so wide that when I" m brushing that bang, I pull in hair that's not bang and there goes those curls for the day!! I'm constantly taking long pieces out that were spiraled and then I"m brushing those poor babies. Also, my bang is now count with like a triangle part which I like for volume, but it's so hard to get the right hairs in the right place. Talk about confusion. Do we try to hard? OH YES I even cry, but after getting this beautiful bang cut, I want to show it off.
