1. A hairstyling apparatus, comprising:
a handle configured to be gripped by a hand of a user;
a barrel mounted to said handle; and
a plurality of bristles extending from said barrel, said bristles configured to engage hair of the user;
wherein said handle, said barrel, and said bristles comprise graphene;
wherein said graphene provides an electrically-conductive pathway between said plurality of bristles, said barrel, and said handle such that static electricity generated by engagement of said bristles with the hair is dissipated to the hand via said hairstyling apparatus;
wherein said handle comprises a coating including said graphene; and
wherein said coating has a thermal conductivity is in the range of six to eight Watts per meter-Kelvin.
