You can be sure....

Hermits will help with it but the greatest benefit will be from manual removal and reduced nutrient.

What kind of brush? Hair algae is quite flimsy and should come off easily. If it does not, then it might actually be turf algae. Judging by the pic though, it does look like hair....
