Monroe Hairbrushes have been created with the professional in mind. The patented hourglass shape mirrors the shape of the scalp, which better grips the hair strands, making more efficient contact with the roots of the hair. This means better control. As a stylist it is common to wind a brush to ensure hair stays on the bristle area while blow drying. This is unnecessary with the patented hour galss shape of Monroe Hairbrushes, where the hair is retained on the bristle so you can simply pull. Combined with the light weight barrels, this should reduce overwork to the wrist and shoulder extension area and can help with preventing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
