where would I look for this fabulous Italian made hairbrush in Rome?

Now this is a really different question for all you Italian travelers. My hairdresser uses a great round,wood handled,brush with a center of vented ceramic and it was made in Italy. She got it at a US trade show and has not seen them since. I swear that my hair has never looked better when dried using it (many times I do it myself there so it is not just her technique)
As I will be in Rome this May I would love to buy one but have no idea where to start looking. Anyone have any ideas?

I'd try Rinascente or Upim but You might do a google search between now and then, especially if there is brand name printed on the brush.

Starrsville...

thanks so much for the detective work. I have been searching google with no luck and really thought your tip was it but not the same. I have bought a US made brand plastic handle, ceramic, vented brush like the last one on the page you found and it does not do the same job.

I can't believe this brush does what it does....hair keeps the shape after drying and is much smoother and feels like silk.

Oh well will, this give me a project in Rome...won't my husband just love that.

Unless you speak fluent Italian, take a photo of your hairdresser's brush with you to show to shop personnel.

You can also store some photos of your brush on your camera too.

There are a number of websites including this one that list many department stores and specialty shops.
