The Next Generation in Professional Styling. EPIC™ isn't just a name… it's an acronym for the line's key attributes: Elite, Professional, Inspired, Creative. 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 ceramic coated barrel emits negative ions which eliminates fly-aways, 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 Multi-grip handle provides control and comfort.
