Developed in 1885 by inventor and engineer Mason Pearson, the Mason Pearson line of brushes continues to use the original designs created by Mason Pearson, with a few improvements made before 1920. Each brush and comb is hand-crafted and polished to perfection. This results in extremely smooth edges that feel comfortable in the hand and bristles and teeth that won't tug or pull at the hair. Men, women and children alike will love Mason Pearson brushes and combs. Mason Pearson brushes are more than just styling aides. Brushing helps to distribute sebum, the body's natural oil, from the root along the strand, strengthening and shielding the hair. Mason Pearson brushes are designed to provide therapy to the hair and scalp while offering a stylish take on hair styling.
