SCIENCE OF AN ERGONOMIC PADDLE BRUSH

Patti Coyne & Michael Victor

Concept of PERFECT BALANCE.

This is so important to relieve both STRESS and reducing FATIQUE in the hand and wrist areas for both stylists and clients

Until now there are only two options to hold a Grooming Paddle Brush

The HANDLE HOLD most commonly used.

This puts a lot of stress on the hand and wrist when styling /Grooming hair. This creates an INBALANCE of WEIGHT due to the distance from the hand to the brush pad, and has a very limited manoeuvrability if your trying to style with a paddle brush.HANDLE HOLD

MILITARY HOLD

With a PADDLE BRUSH, you are not using the handle but can be held in this position.

This gives the user direct contact with the hair and scalp as the palm is centred above the pad. This hold has very limited manoeuvrability and tension adjustments on the hair and limits MICRO CIRCULATION.

One overall issue with most Paddle brushes is they tend to have a THIN ROUND EDGE. Therefore,  this does not allow you to hold the paddle edge, limiting the ability to roll the bristles. Reducing the ability for tension adjustments, also when the hands are wet the fingers easily slip off the brush.

Thin Round Body Edge

The BALANCED HOLD

By repositioning the hand and fingers just slightly over the bottom edge of the bristles and pad just above the handle you will improve the function and performance of a Paddle brush.

PERFECT BALANCE

In the hand, the brush will become an extension of your hand and not just a tool.

Holding the brush in this position will  increase MANOEUVRABILITY allowing you to roll the brush for easier/gentler detangling, controlling tension and enhancing MICRO CIRCULATION.

LESS STRESS/LESS EFFORT

Shifting to this BALANCED POSITION will Decrease the amount of energy needed to achieve MAXIMUM performance with half the effort.

Using this approach while brushing or styling hair you will be more aware of the Density changes and different conditions throughout the hair.
