Hairbrushes: a scantily-discussed item on

And now here are some that'll cost you the equivalent of a nice lunch out, so of course they'll be from Shu Uemura. If you're a fan of volume or you're adept at the hard-to-master at-home blowdry (I just don't bother, can't get it right at all), then you'll know barrel brushes are the tool you need to get to grips with if you want to get smooth volume.

I have the paddle brush the brand does and it's absolutely excellent. As well it might be, at about €50, but it's been going strong now for a couple of years, isn't showing any wear or tear and doesn't stress my fine, prone-to-frizz locks. That's enough plus points for me to reckon the two new tools to the lineup might well be worth a punt.


The inventively-named round brush and - wait for it - small round brush can be yours now for €31.50 and €26 respectively.  Handles are kotibe wood (a tropical hardwood) with boar bristles in a large quantity. That apparently allows hair to be "groomed gently without damaging the hair creating a beautifully silky and smooth finish."

Whaddya reckon? Is this the sort of cash you're likely to drop on a hairbrush or will you be sticking with your cheapy offering from Boots, thanks very much?
