LARGER SIZE: A full- size and travel- size version of Spornette 's luxury cushion brushes. This larger version is a hairstyle staple that can be used for everyday use in your vanity bathroom or office desk drawer. Dimensions of product 9.2 x 3 x 1 inch; 12 ounces.

The large luxury boar and nylon cushion brush of Spornette works well on all types of hair- long, medium, short, thick, thin, curly, wavy or straight. For wigs and extensions, it's even gentle enough.

BOAR BRISTLE AND NYLON BRISTLE COMBO: This cushion brush is equipped with both boar and nylon bristles. The nylon bristles are slightly longer than the boar bristles, which facilitate the penetration and detachment of the bristle tuft. The shorter bristles of the boar soften, fit and add brightness.

SATIN HANDLE: The large luxury cushion brush of Spornette features an elegant satin handle that feels luxurious in the hand. And your hands won't tire or cramp as you style at just 6 ounces.

PROTECTIVE RUBBER CUSHION: Disclaim damaged hair! Cushion brushes are designed to collapse when they meet resistance, such as tangles and knots, which reduce breakage, even during vigorous sessions of hair breaking. The cushion is vented with an air hole in order to allow air to circulate under the rubber. This allows the brush to completely dry out between uses and eliminates bacterial growth, keeping it clean, safe and healthy.

Did you ever wonder what the secret of your stylist is? Why doesn't your hair look so wonderful when you style it at home? Part of the secret of a great stylist is to have great tools. Spornette produces high-quality professional hair-styling tools at an affordable price with its LX series of brushes. The LX large luxury cushion nylon boar and nylon bristle hair brush are similar to costly European high-end brushes. Since the 1950s, Spornette, a family-owned and three-generation company, has been producing salon quality brushes for the professional beauty industry.
