Cult Classic Beauty Products: The Mason Pearson
A tried-and-true beauty product is much like an old friend: reliable, comforting, and supportive. It gives you what you need, there are no surprises, and it saves you in a pinch. Always. Chances are you have a few of these products tucked away in your vanity. In the beauty world, a select few products have earned the coveted label of cult classic. With golden reputations and massive loyal followings to boot, these products are hero products if we ever saw 'em! We're taking a peek at these cult-classic beauty products to see the magic behind them! Last week we revealed the iconic red lipstick that celebs and beauty mavens alike can't live without. This week, it's on to a product you may not even know you need.
Why it's a classic: For those of you who did not immediately close out of this article after seeing the price of this brush, allow us a moment to explain that price tag. This brush has history! It was invented way back in 1905 by innovator and engineer Mason Pearson. He used his knowledge of wool processing to develop an entirely new type of brush. The Mason Pearson brush boasts a patented pneumatic cushion bristle bed that forms to fit the contours of your head (in other words, it's super comfortable to use) and a handle sized and formed to be easy to grasp. Each brush is handcrafted—not mass produced—and Influensters give it a resounding 5-star rating.
Why we love it: As one Influenster put it, this is the "Bentley of hair brushes." You buy one and you're set for life. But, what really sets it apart is that the bristles—a mixture of boar and nylon—evenly distribute your hair's natural oils from root to tip and gently massage your head as you brush leaving your hair conditioned and gleaming. If your hair is thick, the brand even offers a brush that is composed of only nylon bristles which can sort out your tangles in no time. If you have normal or fine hair, you can use either the mixed bristle brush or the all-boar bristle brush.
