John Denman Dean (Jack Dean) patented his first innovative brush in England in 1938. Since then the company has risen to iconic significance in the hairdressing world. From the first, Dean drew on the expertise of leading hair dresses of the day. Working together, they designed artistic, well-engineered, and innovatively-designed grooming utensils. The company had steady growth over the decades, but they were launched to popularity through the endorsement of legendary hair icon, Vidal Sassoon. They have changed hands over the years, but what has never changed is their commitment to be "designed by hairdressers for hairdressers". That is why Denman products can be found in the hands of hairdressers, stylists, and barbers in 60 countries worldwide. Now in the hands of parent company, Denroy Group of Companies out of North Ireland, these styling products are still made in the UK. So, if you want "the most famous hairbrush in the world" to detangle, style, and smooth your locks, then you should look to Denman.
