About Kent Brushes

Founded in 1777, Kent Brushes are renowned for our outstanding reputation and remarkable title as the world's oldest hairbrush manufacturer. Our success has been built upon our rich British heritage as well as our high-quality service and haircare expertise. Having manufactured brushes for over 230 years, Kent Brushes offer an extensive choice of over 250 products, ranging from brushes for hair, body, clothes, make-up, teeth and shaving. In the UK, we partner with some of the nation's most established department stores including John Lewis, Selfridges, Harrods and Fortnum and Mason, as well as leading pharmaceutical establishments. We also distribute to more than 50 countries world-wide, including the United States, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and regions including Europe, Scandinavia and The Middle East.

Aside from our rich heritage and exceptional repute, Kent Brushes are most famous for our range of hairbrushes which consists of products to cater for any hair type, length or style and budget. With an extensive selection of brushes including styling brushes, radials, ceramics, vents, ionic, paddle, volumising and pure bristle, Kent Brushes are the perfect choice for both salon and retail use.

Our Attitude

Kent’s philosophy runs far deeper than just creating a great brush. We are extremely proud of our British manufacturing heritage and wish to maintain our spectacular reputation through our dedication to exceeding all customer expectations and by continuing our devoted commitment to each and every customer.

Kent Brushes are amongst the very few hairbrush manufacturers left in the UK. Although we experience continual pressure from cheaper foreign imports branded with ‘designer’ labels sold at extortionate prices, we will never settle to selling a lesser product at a high price point. We only produce world class products – without compromise.

Material

We are renowned for our passion for bristle brushes. The bristle is sourced from the finest bristle merchants in India and China, where quality is guaranteed. (Read our Bristle advice) Timbers are chosen from sustainable forests throughout the world, selected for their beauty, grain, colour and suitability to be shaped, drilled and polished.

Rubber cushions are selected for softness and strength, comfortable for delicate scalps but strong enough to be durable and withstand years of use. Plastic quills have carefully rounded ends to tease their way through tangled hair without pulling or tugging.
