This is a review for a pocket or small (about 6 3/4 inches long) Mason Pearson brush made of five rings of mixed boar bristle and nylon. The longer bristles are nylon and the shorter ones are boar bristle. It is a beautiful heirloom brush worth every penny of the incredibly high price.

All of the larger Mason Pearson brushes, including this one, come with a cleaning brush, so that you can easily clean loose hairs out of your brush.

There are two things you need to know when you're ready to buy a Mason Pearson brush of any sort. One is the size: full-size (the largest size), handy (medium sized), or pocket (the smallest size). This is important not so much because of where the brush will be kept (say, in your handbag), but because of the bristle length of the various sizes. The smaller sizes have shorter bristles. The bristles have to be able to reach your scalp, and massage it and distribute the oils throughout your hair. If you want a small brush but you have thick or long hair, you'd do better with a larger size.

The other consideration is the bristle type. Do you want a mixed bristle brush like this one that is part boar bristle and part nylon? What is most comfortable and performs the best with your hair. This mixed bristle brush will work well for you if your hair is fine to normal and not too long or too thick. Otherwise, you'll need to go with the Detangler because the bristles are stiffer and can reach down through all of your hair to the scalp; the Detangler is the only Mason Pearson brush that can reach the scalp of extremely thick hair. Mason Pearson also makes an All Boar Bristle Brush for finer or shorter hair but I have never tried it.

So, this mixed bristle brush is for normal, finer, and shorter hair.

The first time I used the brush the gold lettering started to come off. This didn't seem right to me so I wrote to Mason Pearson directly. Below is their detailed reply. It is worth noting that I never use hand lotion or products in my hair other than shampoo, conditioner and water. These brushes are an investment, and I would rather spend a little more and have the confidence of an authentic product from an authorized retailer.

Thank you for your enquiry. We do not sell online, neither do we supply any websites with our products. As we are experiencing problems with forgeries at the moment, we cannot guarantee that the hairbrushes any website is selling are genuine Mason Pearson products as we do not supply direct any online stockist. Consequently, ‘Amazon’ is not an authorised stockist.

The idea of forgeries as you would imagine is to pass them off as the original article that is why we can usually only tell if a hairbrush is a forgery, other than by purchasing through an authorised stockist, is by one of our brushmakers actually examining it, which means we may have to dismantle then reassemble the hairbrush in this process. There are usually no “tell tail signs to identify a replica” even the boxes and the enclosed leaflets have been very cleverly copied on the forgeries we have come across.

Mason Pearson hairbrushes are still made virtually by hand as they were over 125 years ago when Mason Pearson Bros. Ltd. was founded. Consequently, as applies to the uniqueness of any hand-made item there is likely to be a slight variation in each item produced.

I never thought I would pay so much for a hairbrush. However, one afternoon I was at my sister's house and my daughter needed her hair brushed. Normally she wiggles, whines, and otherwise fusses as I brush her hair, but somehow this brush didn't bother her a bit. I immediately asked my sister about the brush and purchased one shortly after. It turns out my sister cherished her Mason Pearson pocket brush, and had purchased it over 10 years ago.

I have several different types of brushes at home, but none seemed to make the chore of combing out my daughters long, fine hair any easier. So we resorted to washing and conditioning her hair nearly every night before combing it through. In the morning I would apply detangling spray prior to brushing it out gently. She must have a very sensitive scalp, but the whining drove me crazy. She no longer fights me on this, and a peaceful morning is worth it's weight in gold. Which is about how expensive the brush was, but in our case, well worth it.

There have been a lot of doubts over the authenticity of Mason Pearson brushes sold on Amazon. I'd recently bought a brush on Amazon and decided to contact Mason Pearson for a price comparison which is when they told me that there were plenty of forgeries on the market. I decided to return the brush, unopened, letting Amazon know that i was worried it was a fake. Unfortunately this and a couple of similar complaints by other customers resulted in the seller being taken off the Amazon Marketplace. This is when i contacted Mason Pearson again and with the information they provided, i checked out the brush, kindly provided to me from the Amazon seller in question. I also compared it with an older brush i had, which was bought directly from the manufacturer.
For starters, the quality of both the brushes was absolutely the same. The same packaging, the same good quality hard plastic,the same rubber pad etc.
I've outlined a general guide below-(this was for my large pure boar bristle hairbrush, model B1)-
1) The name on the handle should be in goldblocking and sunken into the plastic.
2) The name on the handle should say:
Mason Pearson
London England
Pure Bristle (varies with brush type)
3) There should be a hole at the end of the brush only, the side opposite to the handle.
4) There should be 16 rows (or 8 rings) of tufts (varies with brush size)
5) When you squeeze down on the brush you should hear it whistle or wheeze as the air flows out of the cushion and the cushion should bounce back at the same speed.
6) This is for the ruby brushes only- at first glance the plastic on the handle seems almost black, but when you hold it up against light, it glows a wonderful deep ruby red.
