...And by this I mean the back of them But also natural bristles or plastic/synthetic? What are your prefernces?

I pick the back/handle that feels best in my hand, the material doesn't matter as much. I'm okay with a synthetic bristle on my hard/dandy brush, but my soft/body brush will always be natural fibers.

My favorite brush is wood with stiff blue plastic bristles. The horses love a good scrubbing with it after a trail ride. A sponge bath and brushing and they are happy to not roll.
I prefer natural for the face, however. Softer

I prefer natural over synthetic brushes, but I like the plastic backs better--easier to clean.

I also go by what feels best in my hands for the back of the brush. I like Oster brushes because the handles really hold up and they are easy to clean. For face brushes I like my wooden natural fiber brush. It fits perfectly in my hand. I've never had problems using plastic bristled brushes and from my experience they seem to hold up a little better.

I like the feel of the wood handles and I much prefer natural bristles for all of my brushes. I have a cactus fiber brush that is the best flick brush EVER!!!
