A hairbrush (also spelled hair brush) is not only good for brushing the hair, but also popular as a spanking implement.
The bottom is spanked with the flat or slightly rounded back of the hairbrush, which should be even and smooth. Traditionally, wooden hairbrushes are used for spanking; however these days often a plastic one will have to do (though these are far less 'effective'). The hairbrush is similar to the following implements: bath brush, wooden paddle, and wooden spoon.
The implement is stereotypically used in domestic spanking contexts such as mother/son or mother/daughter, in cases where a harder punishment than a hand-spanking is intended.
