A beauty essential since the dawn of time, the gesture of styling and detangling is the healthiest, natural and sustainable hair care there is. And to make it perfect, at Altesse Studio, our craftsmen handcraft unique brushes, with proven effectiveness and made in France.
Why choose a boar bristle brush made in France?
While boar bristle brushes were items accessible to everyone, their use began to become less common with the invention of synthetic fibers (including nylon in 1936), particularly after World War II. Since 1875, the challenge of made in France has been at the heart of Altesse Studio's values: French creator and manufacturer of hairbrushes for six generations, the company is keen to promote the tradition of the brushmaking profession thanks to ancestral know-how and a respect for criteria of excellence. Choosing an Altesse Studio boar hair brush made in France means participating in a virtuous movement, which perpetuates the French brushmaking tradition, and contributes to revitalizing this historic industry, while providing numerous benefits to your hair.
What is the difference between a boar bristle brush made in France and an industrial plastic brush?
Two subjects differentiate a wild boar hair brush made in France from an industrially manufactured brush: their quality and their ethics. While a natural boar bristle brush is effective for optimal brushing
and offers flawless durability over the years, the plastic brush does not provide any benefit to the hair. Certainly they will detangle your hair, but in an aggressive manner both for the hair fiber (tension and breakage) and for the scalp because of the rigidity of their pimples. Some will also tear out your hair because it will get stuck between the air cushion and the base of the pimples. On the other hand, they will have a much more limited lifespan than quality French brushes because of the quality of the materials used and the manufacturing methods. But also, the stacking of a French boar hair brush comes from true historical brushmaking know-how, via a responsible and virtuous manufacturing process like that adopted at Altesse Studio. Conversely, cheap brushes are mainly produced by factories whose conditions are sometimes questionable. Enough to break with the cherished values of our brush factory.
