The mum daughter relationship is a mixed lolly jar of joy, frustration, priceless moments and also being completely out of your known universe.
Happy Hair™ founder Jen Harwood is a single mum and has a deep bond with her daughter Rose, yet it was tested and stretched EVERY morning when Rose turned 5.
Rose's hair was thick and she had a sensitive head. Not wanting to deal with daily trauma Jen cut it shoulder length to try and manage getting it in a ponytail as per pre-school requirements.
Jen was about to ‘chop it all off’ a year later when Rose went to school as the daily drama and fighting by the front door to get hair brushes was just too much – for mother and daughter.
After a year of struggle and trying out many different brushes, Jen had had enough and she looked for manufacturers to create her own.
It took various rounds of prototypes until the Original Happy Hair Brush was born – a brush that combines 5 brush designs into one.
Upon sharing the brush with her sister Kate, Jen knew, this was going to be a game changer for all women everywhere !
