    (March 2, 1907-March 15, 1998)
    Born in Rantoul, Illinois
    Birth name was Robert William Redding
    Hairdresser and cosmetologist
    Founded the companies Jheri Redding Products (1956), Redken (1960), Jhirmack (1968) and Nexxus (1979)
    Inducted into the National Cosmetology Hall of Fame (1990) and the North American Hairstyling Association's Hall of Leaders (1997)
    He gave the world the Jheri curl, the chief rival to the mullet as dumbest hairstyle of the 80s.
    The Jheri curl softener damaged the hair.
    Flammable Jheri products contributed to Michael Jackson catching fire during a Pepsi commercial (1983).
    Many of his products ignore the fact that hair is dead and pumping vitamins, for example, into it won't bring it back to life.
    He invented the first modern-day conditioner and pH-balanced shampoo.
    The four companies he founded continue to operate with different owners.
    Jheri curl products were parodied as 'Soul Glo' in the film 'Coming to America.' (1988)
