    Default Best vacuum for long hair?

    My dyson died and I am in the market for a new vacuum. It worked well for the most part but I have long haired dogs and even longer haired people in my house and the hair was always getting wrapped around the brush. I have been using my daughter's dirt devil and it is doing an amazing job but it's like a Barbie vacuum so it won't work long term. I am wondering if there is something different about the bristles that aren't getting them hopelessly tangled in hair? If so, is there a full sized vacuum with those kind of bristles? Would a full sized dirt devil do the trick? We had one ages ago and I wasn't impressed but maybe it has improved since then. Any suggestions?

    In case anyone was wondering, we went with the Shark Lift Away Pro. I love the floor attachment that vacuums and dusts at the same time with a washable pad but the brush attachment is already clogged with hair after vacuuming the stairs. We'll see how it goes.
