Flexible Hair Care

This Travel Hair Brush Bends Over Backwards to Fit Conveniently Into Your Bag

— August 2, 2016 — Fashion
This travel hair brush design more than lives up to its brief, demonstrating how incredibly lacking compact hair care products have been up until now. While many hairbrush manufacturers have been creating scaled-down combs and fold-up apparatuses, Serge Atallah devised something simple, yet revolutionary.

A ring of silicon material is molded with a section of semi-stiff bristles, capable of picking through knots in tangled tresses. These can be splayed around the exterior of the malleable band––a band that can be comfortably gripped in one hand. Once your grooming is complete, the stretchy ring can be flipped inside-out so that the spines are pointed inwards. This convertible quality keeps the travel hair brush compact, and prevents scratching within your bag and getting entwined with other items like headphones.
Trend Themes
1. Compact Hair Care Products - The demand for compact and portable hair care products, like fold-up apparatuses and travel brushes, is on the rise.

Industry Implications

2. Travel and Hospitality - The travel and hospitality industry can benefit from providing guests with convenient and portable hair care tools like the silicone travel hair brush.
3. Manufacturing and Materials - The manufacturing and materials industry can explore the development and use of new materials, like silicon, to create more efficient and functional hair care products.
