The famous orange pad fills with air through a small hole in the tip of the brush, giving the hairbrush a luxurious soft cushion. The high quality boar bristle ensures beautiful results and longevity of use.
The plastic handle shape was developed from the original wooden models, which are still made in small quantities. These handles are hand-finished to remove any sharp edges and make the hairbrush more comfortable to hold.
