New Flag founders, Niklas Epstein and Daniel Haffa, have a longstanding friendship, which is why mutual trust is the foundation of all New Flag activities. The first brand was actually founded by chance: Niklas Epstein's girlfriend at the time, came back from her hair appointement in London with a Tangle Teezer and the two founders immediately recognized great potential. Without any business track record, there was a sales deal and New Flag became the biggest Tangle Teezer distributor worldwide.
The second brand of the New Flag portfolio was again founded by chance. Sophie Trelles-Tvede used an old telephone cable as a hairtie for a bad taste party and detected that the cable didn't leave a trace and it was also very comfortable to wear. Together with Felix Haffa, she further developed this idea. This came to be New Flag's first own brand, invisibobble, which has had and is still having huge success. Meanwhile, New Flag's portfolio includes 18 extraordinary brands composed of own brands and distribution brands. In 2016, Felix Haffa joined the management team and Sophie Trelles-Tvede followed suit in 2019.

For a bad-taste party, she decided to tie her hair together with a telephone cable. This is where the idea of the invisibobble was born. Together with Felix Haffa, she founded the company and the two made it onto the Forbes 30 under 30 list just four years after invisibobble was founded. She has been a part of the New Flag management team since 2019.
