Creating a whole new category in haircare – detangling, former hair colourist Shaun P launched his innovative brand called Tangle Teezer in 2007. Having been rejected by Dragons’ Den as a ‘hairbrained idea’ the brand has since become an award-winning global phenomenon having sold 40 million hairbrushes worldwide.
A buzz brand that knows no boundaries, innovation is at the forefront of this Brixton based, British designed and manufactured brand. Sold in nearly 100 countries, it’s a brand that has achieved cult status from developing hairbrushes and tools that create new ways to solve problems with disruptive technology.
Shaun was thrilled to be approached by the BDT as his love of Brixton began 30 years ago when he moved into the area. He originally built his business from his two-bedroomed flat in Brixton before moving into premises in Stockwell Road. Drawn to the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of Brixton, to be able to put back into the community as well as establish Tangle Teezer as a Brixton based brand is hugely rewarding for Shaun.
Brixton BID is committed to continuing its investment in Brixton’s rich creative community and celebrating our famous cultural diversity. It is delightful to see businesses in Brixton coming together to support Brixton Design Trail.
Our work with Brixton Design Trail over the years has helped to establish Brixton as an even more distinctive destination for all. Brixton is like nowhere else.
Since 2014, the BID has been providing valuable service and projects to help make running a business in Brixton easier. Before the BID, local businesses had no collective voice in Brixton and no way to come together to invest in their own community or future.
We all know Brixton is changing. With more new businesses choosing Brixton, our vision is to build on the area’s strengths and capitalise on its unique diversity, vibrancy and culture. We are here to help local businesses become more resilient to these challenges and to create more opportunities for us all to thrive.
