Henkel's Beauty Care Professional business has an extensive product range in the areas of hair care, hair styling and hair colorants that is exclusively for hairdressers. Henkel is the world number 3 in the Hair Salon field and is increasingly making an impact on the market with the launch of innovative products.

Hair Salon business

Henkel Beauty Care's Hair Salon business also includes the brands Sexy Hair, Alterna and Kenra that we acquired in North America in 2014. Within the Hair Care category, Schwarzkopf Professional generated strong momentum in 2016 with the BC Bonacure brand. New Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure Repair Rescue with patented Reversilane Technology durably restores hair fibers while sealing the hair surface with a protective shield. In the Colorants category, Schwarzkopf Professional launched new Igora Royal Highlifts with Fibre Bond Technology onto the market. These products minimize hair breakage while producing the coolest blond tones from Igora of all time. In the Styling category, the brand Osis+ with its slogan “Made to Create” offers a complete product range for the creation of uniquely individual hair styles whenever required.

Strong bonds

Bonding Technology is revolutionizing the hairdressing trade, as it enables salons to broaden their hair colorants business with an infinite number of service options and product sales opportunities. The Schwarzkopf Professional website contains everything you need to know about our innovations and the associated technologies.

There is a very special bond between hairdressers and their customers. They inspire and trust each other, they talk about their troubles and share many happy, funny and exciting moments.
