The Natural Bristle Hair Brush, Perfected

Kent Brushes the oldest and still finest brushes in the world. Since 1777

Kent Brushes are not only the most skilled crafters of the natural bristle hair brush in the UK, but they are one of the oldest companies in the world, let alone Britain. That is something to crow about. They have also been granted a Royal Warrant for 9 successive reigns. So, when it comes to the classic brushes, they know a thing or two. Kent Brushes have always believed in craftsmanship. It is at the heart of their business, and in each of their natural bristle brushes. While the world has turned to mass manufactured processes, the Kent hair brush has stood firm amongst the crowd. Kent Brushes stuck to creating the best wooden hair brushes in the UK by sticking to what they know best - doing things right, with skill and craft.


Every natural bristle hair brush is crafted by hand in Hertfordshire, by craftsmen and craftswomen who truly understand their skill. So when you’re using a Kent hair brush, you can feel the difference. Each wooden hair brush from Kent Brushes is crafted in much the same way that they have always been, in a labour-intensive that many modern industrialists frown upon. But Kent Brushes know that their reputation, as not only the world’s first hairbrush manufacturer but also the finest, needs to be safeguarded. They’re of the opinion that if something isn’t broken, then why fix it? And if that ethos leads to a meticulously crafted wooden hair brush the kind of quality that Kent Brushes produce, we would say that’s a pretty good opinion.


The story of G.B Kent and Sons starts during the reign of George III in 1777. William Kent founded the company and was still in the Kent family up until 1932. That is 6 generations. Then the last of the last 3 remaining Kent brothers passed away. Following this G.B Kent and Sons merged with Cosby Brushes Ltd. Since then Kent brushes has been under the stewardship of the Cosby Family. Their ethos still remains the same. To create the world’s finest natural bristle hair brush using as much British craftsmanship as possible.


Their bristle and boar hair brushes are still hand pulled in Hertfordshire. Meaning that real craftsmen and women use their years of passed down skills to create a brush that is individual, yet designed to be as perfect as the next. A Kent natural bristle hair brush is likely to last a lifetime if treated well. It is not unheard of that a Kent has been handed down from generation to generation. ‘I am too poor to buy cheap’ is an adage that would fit Kent brushes to a tee.
