Tangle Teezer inventor Shaun P appeared on the BBC show Dragon's Den in 2007. Once demonstrated, The Dragons were soon breathing their fire with Peter Jones declaring it a 'hair brained' idea. Ever the optimist, Shaun didn't take the public mauling personally so he self-financed his invention and began marketing the Tangle Teezer. The word spread and sales soon took off. The rest is hair history.
It was whilst heading up colour divisions in salons that Shaun had his 'light bulb' moment - an idea that was to make him one of the most dynamic and innovative entrepreneurs in the hairdressing industry. After observing assistants at salons around the world hacking through freshly coloured hair with a comb, he realised that there was a calling for a new detangling tool that didn't fight or lock in tangles.
The answer was in specifically designed and spaced teeth. Teeth that flexed over tangles without pulling or snagging. After four years in the making, the new generation of hairbrush was born. It was called Tangle Teezer.
The award-winning original Tangle Teezer has become the best selling hairbrush in the UK and is fast becoming a global favourite.
"Correct tools and products are paramount for achieving and maintaining beautiful hair. Tangle Teezer goes way beyond just detangling hair. It helps make your whole hair care regime quicker, which in turn makes your life easier." - Shaun P.
