Having short hair, I had no idea this was even a thing, but apparently it is very common to get a round brush stuck in your hair. It occurs most often if you are using too small of a round brush for all your hair (my hair stylist Kevin Mancuso advises using a round brush that has a diameter equal to half the length of one strand of your hair).
True story: This problem was called to my attention by my beauty muse, my mom, who yesterday not only got a round brush tangled in her hair, but had to drive to her hair salon with said brush stuck in her mane to get it untangled. So, they did the deed by pulling the brush (curling it under as they worked) gently and extremely slowly toward her ends.
I have asked around and here are a few other solutions:
• Use a knitting needle to carefully pull tangled portions over the top of the brush until all the hair is free (then spritz the ensuing knot of hair with a solution of equal parts conditioner and water and comb through it in small strokes).
• More brilliant: Cut the bristles of the hairbrush as close as possible to their base, then pick them out of your hair. As a last resort, you can cut tiny pieces of hair (not the whole section, obviously) to loosen the tangle.
• A last helpful hint: When you style your hair using a round brush, avoid simply pulling it through strands. Instead, roll it down your scalp as you brush so it has something to cling to other than hair.
Now that your hair is finally flying free, try one of these quick hairstyles.
