To provide you with the most accurate measurements possible, we measure all of our brushes as follows:

Length refers to the distance from the edge of the ferrule out to the tip of the hair in the brush's center.

Diameter refers to the distance across a round ferrule at the exact point where the ferrule ends and the hair begins.

Width refers to the distance across a flat ferrule at the exact point where the ferrule ends and the hair begins.
