Launched in 2007, Tangle Teezer is a brand of detangling hair brushes made by London hairstylist Shaun Pulfrey.
Research for the product began in 2003, where Pulfrey noticed that assistants at a hair salon were using combs to detangle freshly-colored, vulnerable hair. From his experience working at Vidal Sassoon plus Toni & Guy, Pulfrey knew that this method can inflict damage on delicate strands. This led to the idea of coming up with a professional-grade brush with flexible teeth to lessen hair tugging and breakage.
Tangle Teezer was born from this idea. While the prototype was first rejected for funding on the BBC reality TV show Dragons’ Den, Pulfrey had the last laugh. He opened his first shop in 2008 and enjoyed continuous success in the next few years.
These small victories were followed with further product innovations in 2012. Other than winning awards, that year saw the launch of the Aqua Splash brush—the first detangling hair brush meant for wet hair.
Among Tangle Teaser’s most prestigious accolades are a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation. It also became part of CoolBrands, an eclectic collection of Britain’s top trendsetting brands. In 2014, the brand also won its first National Business Award for Growth Business Award, a Supply Chain Excellence Award, as well as a Queen’s Award for International Trade.
More awards followed the brand in 2015, further adding to its prestige. This was when Tangle Teezer won its first Sunday Times Style Award for Best Hair Product, its second Allure Best of Beauty Award, plus another International Business of the Year award and its fourth Cool Brands citation.
