Freaky Fashion Friday: Hairbrush with real hair attached

hairbrush with real hair attached

OK, we have our own hands up here, because although this item was created by a fashion brand, it’s not actually a fashion item. But hey, it’s Friday, it’s the end of another week, and we bet you’re all out enjoying the sun rather anyway, so we’re using a bit of artistic licence here, to show you this wooden hairbrush by Bless, which comes with a significant amount of real hair attached. (They don’t say whether the hair is human or not, just that it’s “real”.)

Honestly, we’re mostly just showing you this so we ask WHY. Why would anyone want to buy a hairbrush with hair already attached to it? Seriously, hair becomes attached to a brush as soon as you use it (although not quite this much, obviously. If you lose this much hair when you brush, it’s probably time to speak to a professional about that.), yes? And if you’re anything like us, you remove that excess hair as quickly as you can, because after a while, it gets kind of gross. Especially if it’s someone else’s hair.

Buy apparently some people want to buy things like this. And apparently they’re willing to pay $275 for it. Don’t like red hair? Don’t worry, you can go blonde instead:

Someone please put us out of misery and explain this to us. We’d be really grateful.

    I’m so confused. How is this a hairbrush? Does it have bristles? Is it meant to go through your own hair? How would it do that? If not, what the heck is it for????

      That’s what I was wondering!! where are the bristles?! I mean surely the hair itself doesn’t do the work! Hair brushing…hair?!?!

    Maybe it’s some kind of duster?

    Apparently these things classify as artwork? I’ve seen similar items (different brand I think – not BLESS) being sold in the gift shop of modern art museums and at one point artmetropole.com was selling them (though I think they’re now out of stock). Not sure they were ever intended for use – maybe just as a talking point: “look at my creepy hair-on-a-hairbrush, neat huh?”

    Maybe something like the Kamasutra feather brush to tickle your partner with?
