Where they’ve come from
London colour technician,Shaun Pulfrey, joined other entrepreneurs on the Dragons Den in 2007, pitching his Tangle Teezers to a panel of five wealthy investors, hoping for financial investment in return for a stake in his company. They declined the opportunity to invest in his idea, but Pulfrey persevered.
Before long he had a team of marketing and sales staff and launched the now famous brush at the international hair exhibition Salon International.
Where they’re going
Focusing on distribution through salons and online, sales soon outgrew the anticipated demand. Tangle Teezer has won multiple awards, and soon became the best-selling hairbrush in the UK.
It’s now available in 37 countries worldwide, and Pulfrey invests his profits on new product development and increasing his manufacturing capabilities. Watch this space
