What is the difference between a styling brush and a "regular" brush?

Now you're probably thinking: surely they both have nylon pins, why don't they both work the same way? This is because the pins of the D3 and the D4 are a lot closer together and if you look closely at the brush you can see that the pins are not quite straight either, they slope upwards. The D83 has fairly straight pins and are all straight up. The pins also have a slightly larger end with a small ball on the pins making it easier to go through your hair. Small details make the brush suitable for different purposes.
