The “selfie,” the act of one taking a picture of oneself, has become such a popular trend that people now have the option of doing this with their hairbrushes.
The “Selfie Brush” costs $20. It serves as both an iphone case as well as a gadget that makes taking selfies easier. As the products slogan says, it is designed to “have your best hair in every selfie!”
The brush handle makes the act of taking an iPhone selfie easier by allowing the user to hold onto the handle as she poses for the camera. The case also has a small mirror that runs down the iPhone slot to guarantee a sufficient amount of reflection. According to the creators, the perfect selfie can be attained with this device by using the brush to style and then flipping it around to leverage an ideal selfie position.
In promotion of the product, the Selfie Hairbrush site points out that as a large item it will be easier to locate in a purse. They also claim that the paddle brush provides “professional looking” styling properties.
The Selfie Brush contains a “bottom slot” which is connected to the iphone’s headphone jack. Thereby, users may talk on the phone, play music, or even watch videos while getting primped up. The product’s website also provides potential customers with tips for taking the optimal selfie. Some pearls of wisdom they offer include: “ditch the duck face” opting for a “soft and playful smile” as well as “skip the flash” since it will “flatten your features.”
The Selfie brush is compatible with the iphone 5 and 5s and comes in pink, purple, and black.
