Do Not Want: The Selfie Brush

In case a bad hair day threatens to ruin your photos, the Selfie Brush does double duty as a hair tamer and phone case. That way, you don’t have to bother to put your brush down and then pick up your phone before taking a selfie, which will save you approximately three whole seconds. It also allows you to answer your phone mid-styling by simply flipping the brush around to chat, or answering the call via voice command and using speaker phone. Is the world seriously at a point where we need to worry about consolidating our various forms of vanity? As the product’s website reminds us, the brush is “easy to find in a pocket book” (yes, a pocket book) and the “perfect social media tool.” It also provides nifty instructions on how to take the perfect selfie which includes showing off your “luscious locks” and “a soft and playful smile,” as well as incorporating the right filter, lighting, and “slimming angles.” Hey, at least they remind us to “ditch the duck face”! If it suits you, you can buy the selfie brush here, but I think I’ll be sticking with regular phone cases. Since I kind of feel like a bully now, I will say this much: that brush handle makes it much easier to raise your phone high above your head for prime photographing angles without dropping it on your face.
