Pro Hairstylists Share Their Favorite Hairbrushes Under $50

When I got my Mason Pearson brush, it felt like an accomplishment—something I had dreamed about (and saved for), as if owning the legendary brush was some sort of beauty right of passage. And maybe it was, but in all honesty, it’s not my favorite brush. My favorite brush isn’t one I had to save up for. And as it turns out, the pros agree: Good hairbrushes don’t have to come with a hefty price tag. I asked a handful of the industry’s best to name their favorite hairbrush for under $50, and the responses flowed like Blake Lively’s cascading waves. A clear winner rose to the top, securing half of all the round brush recommendations, and the rest of the list is pretty impressive, too.
