Having built a brand synonymous with quality and excellence, the company is continuously redefining the grooming experience for men and women with their signature hair brushes and traditional grooming products. Beginning with their signature bristle hair brushes, the company has expanded its line of quality grooming products to include over 250 varieties of premium brushes for shaving, body care, apparel and household items that are sold in over in more than 50 countries in North America, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.


The making of a Kent brush

Kent’s trademark design, detail, and craftsmanship easily set the brand apart from other manufacturers.

Producing a Kent brush is similar to producing a valuable piece of art that requires special technique and close precision. Consumers are surprised to learn that many of their original hair brushes are still produced by hand in their Apsley, Hertfordshire factory and can take up to 540 hours to complete because of the fine and precise details inherent in the brushes.


Key features of a Kent brush

Whether handmade or factory produced, Kent remains committed to excellence and uses the same high-quality materials for all their brushes.

High-quality bristles, available in black and white, are sourced from China and India to ensure that each brush is gentle and effective. As part of their interest in sustainability and their commitment to protecting and conserving the environment, Kent uses ethically sourced badger hair for brush fibres and sustainably sourced timber for handles and frames.

Another unique feature present in Kent hair brushes is the durable rubber cushion. Designed to protect sensitive scalps against irritation, it ensures hair its not damaged by tugging or pulling and can be used on all hair types.

Classic, yet functional, a Kent brush is an investment that is sure to elevate anyone’s grooming experience.
