Kent hand sawn combs are cut from large sheets of cellulose acetate rather than moulded, producing a truly gentle comb, which is the secret of their success. This material is tactile, flexible and strong. They glide effortlessly through hair without scratching or damaging the hair or scalp. Kent combs have rounded teeth which ensure a smooth and comfortable action. The range includes designs for thick and fine hair, in varying sizes, for both men and women.
G B Kent & Sons Ltd, aka Kent Brushes was founded by William Kent in the reign of George III. Kent holds a pre-eminent place in the history of brush making, with an unbroken record of excellence in the quality of its production which has been recognized by the granting of Royal Warrants for nine reigns.
The company continues to retain the craftsmanship and unprecedented quality that is Kent's reputation. Even in today's fast-moving, mass-produced assembly, Kent are proud to still be manufacturing many of their original brushes by hand.
Nevertheless, Kent Brushes is committed to developing and enhancing its products with every step they take. Kent harnesses the latest hi-tech manufacturing processes, whilst building on the time-honored traditional methods to create the world's finest example of each and every brush that leaves their factory.
Kent's philosophy runs far deeper than just creating a great brush. They are dedicated to exceeding all expectations, are proud of their English manufacturing heritage, and they aim only to continue their commitment to this.
Kent Brushes are one of very few UK hairbrush manufacturers left. With continual pressure from cheap foreign imports branded with 'designer' labels and sold at extortionate prices, Kent has not buckled to the temptation of selling a lesser product at a high price point. They only produce world class products - without compromise.
Kent are renowned for their passion for bristle brushes. The bristle is sourced from the finest bristle merchants in India and China, where it is a by-product, and quality is guaranteed. Good quality boar bristles have a natural stiffness to brush thoroughly yet "give" as they are drawn through the hair, and are renowned for their strength and resilience. The quality of boar bristle varies considerably. Bristles are judged by their stiffness. When the hair is collected from the boar, the best quality and the most expensive are the bristles found closest to the body.
Timbers are chosen from sustainable forests throughout the world, selected for their beauty, grain, color 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.
