Spornette small Luxury Cushion brush features nylon and boar bristles on a small cushion. The nylon bristles are longer than the boar bristles, making it easier for the bristle tuft to penetrate the hairline. The shorter boar bristles act as a hold for better styling results. The Spornette LX brushes are comparable to very expensive European brushes. Try the small cushion brush, it a perfect travel size!
