Unless you have an army of stylists like Kate Middleton or Beyoncé, chances are you use the same hairbrush for all of your styling needs. Maybe you have the travel-sized version of your paddle brush or a round brush buried in your bathroom drawer. But do you really consider buying different brushes for styling your hair? No? Well, you should.

Turns out, along with heat tools and those super taut hairstyles, the brush you use for practically everything may being doing just as much damage to your hair. Size, bristle type and the shape of your brush have a huge impact on the health of your hair and how it styles. Every type of brush produces a different result, and, just like makeup brushes, not all hairbrushes should be treated the same.

Film and television hairstylist Linda Flowers (whose looks can be seen on the Hunger Games), celebrity stylist for the Kardashians and Jessica Alba, Jen Atkins, and stylist at Rita Hazan Salon, Kim Gueldner, all weighed in to tell us the hair brushing mistakes we've been making all along. Whether you're smoothing, detangling, curling or frizz-fighting, these are the tips that will change your hair care routine for good.
