- The unique rubber-cushion pad, made by hand using Mason Pearson’s original techniques, allows for effective and efficient brushing. It is kind to use and massages the scalp.
- The cellulose plastic handle is hand-polished and any sharp edges are removed to make the hairbrush more comfortable to hold. This handle was developed from the original wooden design which we continue to make in small quantities.
- Mason Pearson continues to try to improve on the established design : for example, the "Child" brush is in response to a customer’s request. This is designed to enable a child to become accustomed to the activity of brushing. Similar to this, in the materials used, is the "Sensitive", which has been developed for people who have thinning hair or very fine hair. This brush gently stimulates the scalp. The natural extension has been to have a "Sensitive" model for those men who are "thin on top".
- Mason Pearson builds their own products to last as long as possible. While they cannot make indestructible products, they use the best materials available so that, with a little care, they should give good service. Mason Pearson tries to make improvements continuously. They have developed their own special nylon and take particular care in their selection of natural bristles to use the best combination for each brush.
