Changing lives one head at a time!
Meet the dream team that makes it all happen.
Happy Hair Brush™ founder Jen Harwood is a single mum and has a deep bond with her daughter Rose. Howver it was tested and stretched EVERY morning when Rose was 5 at pre-school. Rose's hair was thick and she had a sensitive head. Not wanting to deal with daily brushing fiasco Jen cut Roses' hair shoulder length to try and manage getting it in a ponytail as per pre-school requirements. Jen was about to ‘chop it all off’ into a short bob a year later when Rose started Kindy as the daily drama and fighting by the front door got worse and the 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, who loved it... Jen knew, this was going to be a game changer for women & their children globally. That is when Jen set the mission of making one million people happy!

I'm a Chartered Accountant and a self confessed numbers nerd, with a passion for ecommerce and supporting women in business. I left behind my corporate accounting career to run my own online fashion label, which is how I met the wonderful Jen! Fast forward five years, two babies and a business sale under my belt, I realised my true passion is for running the backend of a business, so when Jen asked me to join her team to support her with all things numbers, I jumped at the opportunity.
FAV HAIR HACK: Use dry shampoo to stretch out the days between washes as it helps to stabilise the hair's natural oil production. I love our new LUXE haircare range, it leaves my hair feeling amazing for days.
FAV LIFE HACKS: Keep moving forward, opportunities can't find you if you're standing still.

I was uncertain about this given I have tried lots with daughter. It is amazing! No tears and she's happy to have her hair brushed now. Totally recommend.
This hairbrush is fantastic! It is much easier to brush my daughter’s hair now - which is fine and gets knotty easily. Highly recommend!
They’re good brushes - more gentle then regular brushes but definitely not pain free
Our household is a mixture of thick wavy, thick curly and thick straight. Still takes quite a bit of time to work through my four year olds curly knots.
Might not be as much of a problem on thinner hair.
This right here THE brush, I have tried many different styles of brushes recommended and nothing worked. My 4 yr old with come to daycare with me with crazy hair as it was not worth the battle most mornings. A work friend brought her one in for me to try I sat back ready to laugh and it almost had me crying happy tears. Miss 4 sat and ate her Kai as her hair was brushed no crying no screaming no ouchhhhh. Brought that day arrived a week later best product ever. She now brushed her own hair and loves brushing her pony’s hair with their little brushes.
My 10 year old loves the hair brush and the hair gets brushed more often now without groans Thankyou
