Tangle Teezer was born after Shaun had spent years of working in UK salons. He realised a need for a quick and easy product that could unsnarl tresses without tugging and pulling, and eventually causing breakages. He knew that hair care represented a huge, ever growing industry that welcomes innovation as a way to make everyday life simpler.
So in 2003, he put pen to paper and started researching and developing his first professional detangling hair tool. All the hard work paid off when The Original brush officially launched and was stocked by a UK high street retailer. This visibility was a real turning point for the business as it offered Shaun’s innovation a commercial seal of approval that saw the product swiftly adopted by high-profile salon chains.
Today, Tangle Teezer has grown exponentially and expanded its range, whilst remaining extremely proud that all their hairbrushes are designed and manufactured in Great Britain. From the design team in London to the factory in Oxfordshire, every element of the Tangle Teezer journey is completed on British soil.
Shaun’s story is inspirational with global success under his belt, but acknowledges that it hasn’t always been easy. Our video reflects his top tips for entrepreneurs and how he remained motivated when things got tough.
