Oval Brushes

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am getting ready to order a brass and a horsehair oval brush for waxing.  There are many companies that make these.  Which ones have you been pleased with?

I've got the Swix oval brass brush (with horsehair around it) and love it, but I haven't used other oval brushes.

Happy with my Artech brushes (brass, nylon, horsehair).

This is one of those questions that involves a lot of personal preference and has an endless amount of correct answers.

 

I have or have tried a lot of different brands of oval brushes and for one reason or another liked them all.  The thing to be aware of is no two companies brushes are the same.  They all pretty much make the same "type" brush/s but each company puts their own preference/s into their brush.  Not all brass, nylon, horsehair, steel, or bronze brushes are the same.  Some are stiffer, some are more densely packed, some have wire diameter thicker or thinner than the other, some have longer or shorter bristles than the other, some oval brushes are bigger then others.  I've noticed the most dissimilarities, from brand to brand, in metal brushes.  Brass brushes seem to vary the most from brand to brand.

 

You'll find, as you add to your collection of brushes over the years, that you like a particular brand horsehair brush for a particular application better then another companies horsehair brush and the same can be said for all the different type brushes whether it be brass, bronze, nylon, horsehair, etc. etc.

 

So to answer your question, they're all good.  I will say, if you're new to doing your own waxing/brushing, you're making a wise choice by going with oval brushes.  Oval brushes, IMO, not only do a better job but they are so much easier to us to do a good job.  They are well worth the extra cost.

 

As a side note, if skipping past buying only two more expensive Swix or Holmenkol brushes allowed you to buy three ARTECH brushes, I'd suggest getting the three ARTECH, Race Place, or SVST brand brushes instead.

They are all good as long as you know how to use them!   Check this out.  You don't really need to take this much time, but brush well always.
