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.Read more ›

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.Read more ›
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:
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.Read more ›
