Honest reviews


Medium bristle/nylon mix brush

I got this hairbrush after years of lusting after it (yet not being able to justify to myself why one should spend so much on something like this). After seeing a recent onslaught of glowing comments about Mason Pearson products on sites like Into the Gloss, etc., I decided it would be worth the cost. I did select the kind that was designed for my hair type (long and fine, but lots of it). I am sorry to say that this hairbrush makes my hair all static-y and fluffy, and the bristles aren’t long enough/straight enough to get all the way through my hair,so I would have to brush it in sections, which is kind of ludicrously time-consuming for so simple an act. However, the product is beautiful, as is the packaging, and it will look lovely lying around on my dressing table. Unless you’re going for the status-symbolism element, I would say that, unfortunately, this item as a utilitarian product falls a bit short.

Mason Pearson is the best!

I love my Mason Pearson! This is one of the best investments I have made for my hair. I have wavy/curly hair that is very thick and comes to about my shoulders. My ends get very dry, especially in the winter. This brush is great because it does not pull out my hair but the bristles are long enough to reach almost my scalp. It is easy to get the brush through my hair and it is great because it really does smooth and not frizz your hair. It also distributes the natural oils in your hair to your ends. The brush itself is beautiful too, the handle is really nice and not awkward to hold or use.

Excellent Brush!

This is a great hair brush. It’s strong so it works well for thick hair as well as fine hair. The handle is big enough so you can get a good grip too.

A must have.

I had only had the brush used on me once before at a posh salon, but I took the plunge. I was in shock that I paid so much for a brush, but when it arrived and I used it for a while I realized it really helps keep your hair in tip top shape. I have virgin hair that is fine, but I have a lot of it. Between this and ViviscalViviscal Extra Strength Hair Nutrient Tablets, 60-Tabletsmy hair has never looked or felt better (that and I rarely heat style).

Famous quality. Useful. Easy to handle. I use it daily. Totally smooth so no pulling and this brush works beautifully. I have fine hair that is pretty fragile. This medium length bristle and the mix of nylon and boar bristle is perfect for me. It reaches the scalp with every brush, which is what one wants in a good brush. Never scratchy or too stiff. I would not like a brush that hurt and this does not. Good feel in the hand. Good weight to it when held. Looks nice on the bathroom counter. Use it with a matching comb. It’s easy to use in styling. The quality and attention to detail is legendary. I am extremely pleased.
