There are hairbrushes and then there are Kent Salon hairbrushes. If you’re a hairdresser then you’ll know what we mean. For many hairdressers, a Kent Salon hairbrush is the only brand they’ll use. With Kent Salon offering the only ‘salon only’ range of professional hairbrushes, we decided to shine the spotlight on them…
Can you begin by telling us about the origins of the Kent Salon brand and what it stands for?
Kent Salon was launched in 2012 as the sister company to Kent Brushes, the oldest brush company in the world.
Kent Salon is surrounded by over 240 years of experience delivered by the Kent Brushes team – a mix of in-house designers and craftspeople who have researched, sketched, sampled, moulded, built, tested and produced the world’s most definitive range of salon professional brushes.
Kent Salon is the first ‘salon only’ range of bespoke hairbrushes. They are sold directly to salons and never on the high street.

How do Kent Salon brushes differ from other brushes on the market?
Kent Salon has designed a ‘salon only’ range and priced it specifically to offer salons an additional revenue opportunity as well as providing precision tools for those seeking perfection from their kit!
No corners have been cut and no expense spared in our pursuit of perfection. Every characteristic and every design detail are functional and with good reason. These are no ordinary hairbrushes. They are tools with purpose, precision and authenticity.

What makes Kent Salon brushes a great choice for salons and mobile hairdressers?
The unquestionable quality of Kent Salon brushes means hairdressers can achieve the best results.
Our ergonomic handles have been crafted to fit every size hand, from the dainty to the heavyweight, and has a feel that whilst soft and smooth, is firm and lightly textured for grip.
Our wide range of brushes allows us to provide a tool for every client. We also offer a fantastic retailing opportunity for hairdressers where a high margin can be achieved.

What are your best selling products? Why do you think these products sell so well?
Our KS02 is our best seller. It’s of similar construction to the Kent Salon Vent Brush; however, it features a moulded head with 50 moulded flexible tufts in a curved and vented chassis. The arch of the brush follows the natural shape of the head for an almost sensual brushing experience.
It’s so popular because of its features and in turn, retails very easily to the public.
Our ceramics KS10/KS11 brushes are our next best sellers as they feature our specially developed ceramic coating. They achieve faster blow drying results with accurate styling.

Why should a salon or hairdresser choose a Kent Salon brush over any other type of brush?
The quality and craftsmanship that is invested in Kent Salon brushes assures hairdressers that they have made an investment in their kit. We offer a 1 year guarantee on our brushes as we are secure in their ability to deliver.
These are not just typical hairbrushes. These are precision tools for those seeking perfection from their kit.
Kent Salon KS11 Ceramic Radial Brush 44mm
Have you noticed new trends or technologies in the world of brushes?
We have noticed a trend of hairdressers moving away from always using ceramics. Most are typically trained to blow dry with ceramics only. However, more and more hairdressers are switching to our mixed radials as they understand the huge benefits to hair with using bristle.
What’s next from Kent Salon? Have you got any new plans or products you’d like to share?
Kent Salon is always developing new products and we are currently focusing on a few new innovative ideas which will be launching in 2022. More radials and advanced technology combs are at the top of the list.
