I tend to be pretty skeptical of new products, especially when it comes to hair color where tools are often created to fill in for a lack of technique. The sprush isn’t that kind of tool, it’s not a crutch, but an upgrade, designed to let your skill set shine. Color brushes, even expensive ones don’t hold up well to extensive use: the bristles bend, the ends get roughed up, and chemical residue builds between the fibers. The sprush eliminates these problems. The solid, flexible tip does bend or fray and provides a smooth clean edge perfect for both precise applications and soft blending. It’s quickly becoming my favorite new tool. Learn how to use it and where to get one of your own in the notes. –– Laura Martin

Uses: You can use the spurs for all your current color techniques including foiling, balayage, and root touch ups. Sprush will not absorb product, so you end up using less color in your applications which is great. The only down side is that it’s difficult to use a dry brush technique, a method which leaves no visible line of demarcation.

Where to buy: The sprush is available form the manufacturer’s website: where you’ll find techniques and instructional videos. You can also purchase your sprush from
