Product Description

Vie-Long 12711 Brown Horse Hair Shaving Brush


The Vie-Long 12711 Brown Horse Hair Shaving brush is a great looking brush with classic styling. It features an injected plastic handle, with a coffee coloured barrel. The handle carries the Vie-Long branding badge and holds the Brown Horse Hair loft. A beautiful looking brush, packaged in a box complete with hanger. Hand Made in Spain.

How to use

The brush bristles should be wet (not soaking) before use. Load the loft with soap or cream and apply to the areas to be shaved, using a strong circular motion. This softens the hairs and also raises them ready for shaving.

We strongly recommend the following aftercare for your brush; When finished always rinse the brush under hot water (especially at the base of the bristles) to remove any remaining soap residue which can result in damage to the bristle and cause early shedding of the loft. The brush should then be stored loft facing down to dry. This can be achieved by using a shaving brush stand and prevents the bristles rotting at the base due to moisture.

Recommended for

Both shaving creams and shaving soaps and all skin types.

Grooming tip

When applying a shaving lather to your skin always use strong circular movements to help soften and raise the hairs and prepare the skin for shaving.

  1. Hi ho silver 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2018

    I’ve tried this brush once and after what I’ve read about horse hair brushes it’s not true this brush is soft and it does not stink and it whips up a really good lather I thinks horse hair brushes are very good as is the delivery and the service from Maguires first class.

  2. VL 12711 Horse hair shaving brush. Excellent. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Feb 2018

    I needed a new brush to replace my old badger so I read the reviews, asked around and most people still regard badger brushes are the best. Well after getting this brush I can only wonder if they ever tried a horse hair brush or just sticking to old established wisdom. Not only was the service from Maquires outstanding this brush gives a great lather without any trouble. The combination of tail and mane hair gives a soft brush yet with body. I'll be sticking with Maquires and Horse hair.

    Extremely pleased with the brush which is full and pleasant to use and so far hasn't shed. Particularly pleased because being horse hair it's harvested with no detriment (or death!) caused to the animal. Also cant really detect any "horsey" smell. I can heartily recommend this brush!

  4. VL 12711 horse hair shaving brush 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2017

    This was my first horse hair shaving brush, supplied by Macguire's 10 months ago. I was uncertain about a horse hair shaving brush so this was dipping a toe in the water.

    It has been excellent and over the months has become my shaving brush of choice. Preferable to the badger brushes in my price range as I prefer to use "hard" shaving soap from a bowl rather than cream from a tube and for this the badger brushes are perhaps too floppy or not sufficiently stiff to generate sufficiently generous lather.

    This brush is softer than my usual boar bristle shaving brushes, even though they do seem to "break in" and become softer over a period.

    This brush is very good- excellent at the price- and I would encourage anyone to try one, or if feeling more adventurous, perhaps a VL horse hair brush further up the product line. You will not be disappointed.

    Perhaps I have been a little mean, but some time ago I dropped the brush in the bathroom and part of the rather attractive handle chipped slightly- this was the only reason to drop a star! Over the decades I have dropped shaving brushes numerous times and this is the first time a handle chipped. However, the shaving dynamics are excellent and at the price I can hardly complain- in fact I have recently bought a further two VL horse hair shaving brushes from Maguire's, and I could not be happier with them.
