Our journey

Manifesto

STYLISTS INSPIRE US

Those who dream. Those who create and those who believe. Helping them make a difference inspires us.

Color inspires us. Colors we encounter on the street. Nature and colorful scenery. Invigorated, vibrant color.

Beauty inspires us. Beauty that is effortless and true. Beauty that radiates naturally from within.

Talent inspires us. Where creativity meets passion. The courage to think outside of the box.

Everything inspires us. The world we live in inspires us. The constant changes, customs and cultures.

But, above all, people inspire us to be our best.

THE BRAND CREATED BY STYLISTS FOR STYLISTS

Hairdressing is more than just a profession for us: it’s an art form. Because hairdressing wouldn’t be possible without a creative spirit that boasts unique skill and qualification and has mastered the technique of hair art.

Our product portfolio offers professionals the tools they need to bring their creations to life. We aim to be a stylist’s best friend. And we want to inspire them – just as they inspire us every day.

We continue to research, learn and offer our global knowledge because we love being their continuous source of inspiration.
