From the Loew-Cornell Brush Selection Guide:

"Choosing the right brush is ultimately a matter of personal preference. However, each type of brush hair possesses its own unique characteristics that make it favorable for certain
mediums, surfaces, and styles. Brushes can be divided into five major hair types: Synthetic Hair, Mixed Hair, Natural Hair, Natural Bristle, and Synthetic Bristle."
