Shaun Pulfrey

Founder & CEO, Tangle Teezer

Shaun Pulfrey is the Founder of Tangle Teezer, the most successful product ever rejected from the BBC's Dragons Den. Shaun began his career as a hair colourist, and worked at globally recognised salons on both sides of the Atlantic. After discovering a better way to detangle hair, Shaun appeared on Dragons Den, where he was turned down by all five investors but received overwhelming support from the public. Now worth £200 million, Tangle Teezer is sold in over 70 countries and endorsed by celebrity fans including Cara Delevingne and Victoria Beckham. In this in-depth interview, Shaun explains why his product has the potential to turn an innocent woman into a thief; describes how the boss of Take That compares Tangle Teezer to his band; and discusses the importance of curiosity in an entrepreneur.
