 Yuko Yamashita, a hair stylist, salon owner, and entrepreneur wanted to make people's lives easier when it came to hair care. As a young Japanese stylist, Yuko met countless women who were unhappy with their hair. The most common complaint was unruly hair that had to be constantly styled every morning and the mere suggestion of rain would make it frizzy and uncontrollable. Yuko wanted her customers including many celebrities to have beautiful, straight and healthy hair without spending hours getting it that way, so she created Yuko Hair Straightening, which has been taking the world by storm for over 10 years.

 Teddy Charles

 Teddy Charles has been creating fabulous looks since he was a teenager in France and has a world-class range of high profile partnerships.

His work combines a flare for contemporary femininity and glamour with an edgy bohemian sensibility. All these attributes have made him an obvious choice for brands as diverse as Calvin Klein and GAP. Teddy’s creations come to life on the catwalk and his hair styles have been seen at Luca and Luca, Marchesa, Rag & Bone and Sari Gueron shows. A-list celebrities have been equally quick to recognize his talents, as illustrated by his impressive clientele including Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively and Hayden Panettiere.

 Tom Taw
Tom Taw is in an entrepreneurial hair stylist from London. His career began when, aged fifteen and working in his local salon, he realized that hairdressing was his calling, and has since learnt from some major hair figures, as well as high-profile Italian hairdressers. After a stint as Senior Creative Director at Aveda, Tom is no stranger to creating impressive and inspirational looks. He not only designs for fashion shows, but also speaks at educational seminars. He opened his Soho salon - ‘BOBSOHO’ – in 2007 where he concentrates on enhancing the natural beauty of hair. The work of his creative team regularly appears in the pages of fashion Bibles Vogue and Elle and he is fast becoming a hit with the stars.

For Sunsilk fans, this would truly be a good thing. I, personally, am not a Sunsilk fan, but then let's see if this new formula would actually work for me.
I'll let you know about my thoughts after testing it out.

So, have you road tested Sunsilk already?

Hope y'all have a great week ahead!
