ERGO Brushes Launch In UK

For nearly 30 years, ERGO Styling Tools has been the choice of leading hairstylists and salons across North America and parts of Europe as well as being the preferred brush brand for Aveda USA and at last, ERGO styling brushes are now available in the UK through ERGO Styling Tools UK. 

Founded by Robert Reed in 1994, ERGO started as a research company, its primary aim to improve and perfect the art of the blow-dry by providing stylists with hot tools and brushes that are easy to use, ergonomically friendly and that deliver longer lasting shiny hair. 

Janie Tongue, Director of Education at ERGO Styling Tools UK & her husband, Jonty Olivier MD, decided to bring the brushes to the UK after being impressed by the ergonomic design. Janie said “As salon owners, we discovered ERGO brushes in America after two of our stylists had to change career and retrain due to repetitive strain injury. This isn’t something that is widely discussed in the hairdressing industry; however, it is something that impacts all stylists on a daily basis. As stylists or salon owners we don’t consider the effect on our bodies that using tools every day can have, stylists do this job for years and using ergonomically designed tools like the ERGO brushes not only has an impact on the outcome of the finished style but also the health and wellbeing of the stylist themselves.”

Specifically, ERGO styling brushes are known for their innovative design, providing precise control and incorporating negative ion-infused technology to minimise frizz and static for a flawlessly smooth salon worthy finish. ERGO styling brushes are a must have in any hairstylist’s kit. 

From early September, the Classic and Super Gentle ERGO brush ranges will be available via There is an official product launch date of 13thOctober in London, on the eve of this year’s Salon International.

ERGO brushes have been designed by hairstylists for hairstylists. The nylon bristles are infused with carbon and tourmaline to increase shine, eliminate frizz and provide heat resistance. 

The unique ergonomic designs feature a textured silicone handle that always provides total control, even with wet or product-covered hands. The double-coated extended ceramic barrel is 20% longer than comparable brushes, leading to faster blow-drying times and the recessed end cap prevents hair from snagging. 

These professional grade brushes are so light and perfectly balanced that even extended use significantly reduces the risk of repetitive strain injury often associated with blow-drying.
