This company’s hairbrushes are used by celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Victoria Beckham and Salma Hayek. Hairdresser and founder Shaun Pulfrey, 55, was rejected by the Dragons’ Den tycoons in 2007, but a year later he clinched a deal to sell his brushes in Boots and sales took off. Tangle Teezer now ships its British-made products to more than 110 countries including Germany and China. Exports account for more than 80% of its sales of £28.6m in 2016. It launched a blow-styling brush last year.
