In brief: Head lice

Less commonly, head lice may be transmitted via such items as: caps, hats and scarves brushes and combs hair decorations, such as barrettes headphones.

In brief: It's possible...

...But unlikely.
While it is possible to transmit head lice via a hairbrush, any decent salon cleans its brushes regularly. Any salon that doesn't should not be in business.
