Every product in the EPIC™ line is designed to exceed the needs of the most demanding professionals. Natural boar and nylon blended bristle creates superior tension while the cramic coated barrel emits negative ions which eliminates flyaways, frizz, and locks in hair's natural oils for a smooth and shiny finish. The barrel is secured in the handle without glue or rivets so it won't snag hair and the Multigrip handle provides control and comfort.
