Each hair brush is made by a company that was founded in 1930. The company began as the importer of the first toothbrush with a celluloid handle, and in its 80-plus years of operation, has built upon this historical lineage with an expanded range of products.
The cellulose acetate based faux-tortoise shell brush is a pneumatic brush, where the pins are fashioned to a rubber cushion that sits over a pocket of air. This allows the cushion to provide soft and elastic support to the pins, while also letting it respond to changes in pressure. This brush works especially well for thick and coarse hair, because the stiff pins provide precise control.
The boar and nylon bristles hair brush features a handle made of red alder wood, which is strong and lightweight. The combination of natural and synthetic bristles makes this brush ideal for volumizing straight and fine hair.
Note: The padded base of this brush is no longer white as shown, but black.
