A decade later, Stafford was living his dream, traveling the world as a Denman ambassador, demonstrating its newest innovations and reintroducing traditional tools to a new generation of hairdressers–and he hasn't looked back. Now, as global creative director, he loves unveiling the Denman brand to old friends and new fans at industry events worldwide. "The Denman family is always willing and eager to listen to customers and take ideas or suggestions on improving the products, or developing new ones," Stafford says proudly. "They know that it's the hair professional who understands the changing trends and the need for tools to help deliver new looks. The brand continues to evolve and develop tools that speed up the drying process, help maintain hair condition, and are suitable for the world's wide and diverse hair types." Stafford adds that the "sheer quality of the caliber of the Denman brand" ensures that today, more than ever, hairstylists everywhere employ the brushes at shows, shoots, film sets and at every Fashion Week. In turn, Denman's commitment to the global hairdressing industry is evident in its involvement in leading trade bodies and organizations, as well as through support of educational programs that encourage and assist young stylists. "Like all great designs, Denman products are simple, effective, and created first and foremost for the user," Stafford concludes. "Denman doesn't create gimmicks, but usable tools with a distinct purpose. Like all great designs, they have been copied and emulated many times—but there is only one original." ■ Tracy Morin is a freelance writer and editor based in Oxford, MS.
