In the world of hairbrushes, there are those that the majority of us use on a daily basis, and then there are those that are so uberchic and expensive that you better have a serious hair obsession to spend upwards of $150 or more on them. Dubbed the “Rolls-Royce of hairbrushes,” the cult classic Mason Pearson brush, which hasn’t changed much since the 1920s, is handmade and beloved for its unique rubber-cushion pad, which gently massages the scalp to promote healthy hair.
