In most cases, vibration like this is caused by slightly warped front brake rotors.

They can warp for example if you drive through a big water puddle when the brakes are hot.

 

The rotors typically can be machined straight a couple of times, before the thickness falls below manufacturer specified minimum limit. Much cheaper than buying new rotors. Places like Pep Boys, JustBrakes, and Firestone at least offer rotor machining service. I would recommend new brake pads too with rotor machining, to maks sure both surfaces are as smooth and flat as they can be, so they would match each other. Pads that are worn to the wear pattern of an old rotor, will take a little while to seat into a new, smooth rotor surface.
