Since 1885, Mason Pearson has been making high-quality hairbrushes that are preferred by stylists and recommended by beauty editors.

Mason Pearson, founder–engineer–inventor, moved from Yorkshire, Northern England to London in the mid-1860s to work at British Steam Brush Works, a manufacturer of small, general handmade brushes. Based in London’s East End, British Steam Brush Works later became known as 'Raper, Pearson, and Gill'.

In 1885, Mason Pearson invented an automatic brush-boring machine to speed up the brush-making process, and he won a silver medal at the International Inventions Exhibition in London. That same year, Pearson went on to invent the pneumatic rubber-cushion hairbrush. He continued to improve the production technique — much of which was done by hand — for this brush until 1905. Pearson's widow continued the business on her own for another 20 years, until the next generation was ready to take its part.

Eventually, management decided to concentrate on Mason Pearson's rubber-cushion hairbrush. Today's product design is similar to the original 1885 model, with the improvements of the fully developed models of the early 1920s. The basic product has not changed, and some of the model names persist: Large Extra, Small Extra, Popular, and Junior.

Like no other brushes on the market, Mason Pearson hairbrushes actually improve the hair’s condition and natural sheen. The bristles massage and stimulate the scalp and flex with the cushion to distribute hair's natural oils. The more you brush, the more you move these oils along the hair strands. This is particularly important for preventing dry ends on fine or long hair.

Put simply, a Mason Pearson is a brush that will help improve and maintain the hair’s condition for life.

Mason Pearson, founder-engineer-inventor, went from Yorkshire, Northern England to London in the mid 1860s to work at the British Steam Brush Works, in London’s East End, in a partnership later known as Raper Pearson and Gill.

The business was in general small-brushmaking. The brushes were made by hand. Mason Pearson invented an automatic brush-boring machine to speed up the whole process of brushmaking in 1885, for which he won a Silver Medal at the International Inventions Exhibition in London in that year. In the same year he invented the pneumatic rubber-cushion hairbrush. It took until 1905 to improve his technique, much of which was still required to be done by hand. His widow continued the business on her own for a further 20 years, when the next generation was ready to take its part.

During this period, the decision was made to concentrate on Mason Pearson's rubber-cushion hairbrush. The product design used nowadays is similar to the original 1885 model with the improvements of the fully developed models of the early 1920s. The basic product has not changed since then and some of the model names are still with us : Large Extra, Small Extra, Popular and Junior.

Brushing with Mason Pearson hairbrushes actually improves the hair’s condition and natural sheen. The bristles massage and stimulate the scalp and flex with the cushion, like no other brush on the market, to distribute natural hair oils.


Put simply, it’s a brush that will help improve and maintain the hair’s condition for life. The more you brush, the more you move these oils along the hair strands.

 

This is particularly important for women with fine hair and long hair to help avoid dry ends.

 

Process

Mason Pearson offers a variety of brushes to suit your hair type and styling needs. The Pure Bristle brush is ideal for fine-to-medium hair. Thick or long hair responds best to the bristle-and-nylon brush styles. For those with coarse or wiry hair, a nylon-tufted brush is the best choice.

Amazing pure bristles: Natural bristles are hand-selected and cut perfectly for a combination of stiffness to hold, smooth, and straighten hair, and give to prevent bristles from tearing and splitting hair ends.

Many bristle rings: The Small Extra is a big brush with a wide face and many rings of bristles to style even the finest hair. Stylists use this as a finishing brush to promote a beautiful, glossy look.

The original pneumatic rubber cushion: In 1885, Mason Pearson developed and patented the first pneumatic cushion and incorporated it into a hairbrush. This handmade rubber cushion allows air to flow through the hair during the brushing process. Additionally, the rubber cushion flexes as you brush, removing static from the hair while gently massaging the scalp. This massage helps distribute hair’s natural sebum along the hair shaft and aids in stimulating hair growth.

The handle: Mason Pearson brushes are ergonomically balanced and fit comfortably in the hand. The beautiful handles are finished with natural flaxseed oil and hand-polished to a high shine.
