And that extends to everything we do: our partnerships, our brands, our charity and philanthropy programs, and a positive working environment. That’s why we work hard – so you can do more every day in favor of sustainable living.
In order to make a difference in everything we do, we want our brands to accomplish more than create beautiful hair and satisfy your clients. We want to use their high profile to do good in our society.
