Industry icon and R+Co (Rouge and Company) co-creator/founder, Howard McLaren visited Samuel Cole Salon to launch his innovative product line. Also with McLaren were Luxury Brand Partners Co-President, Tevya Finger and R+Co President Reuben Carranza former CEO of Wella. R+Co is a collective of some of the most forward-thinking, rule-bending hairstylists in the business. The company is a think tank of top editorial and salon stylists and educators—with a combined century of hairdressing knowledge and experience—and as a company they make sure that they have more than one viewpoint on everything they do. McLaren along with industry legend Garren and Thom Priano created the R+Co line with performance for the client and education for the stylist as their major points of emphasis.
The trio shared their immense expertise and inspiration in a day long class that focused on motivation and maximizing your potential. In addition McLaren showcased his talent with a cutting and styling demonstration. He also shared the catalyst behind the creation of the R+Co brand.
Stylists are the real heroes of this brand. In an industry not always known for collaboration, R+Co is all about creating a dialogue between the broader stylist community to celebrate the culture of hairdressing. We advocate for stylists—and their clients—to find the point of view and style that best matches their own. All of our products are treatment-oriented, with the health of the hair and scalp always top-of-mind. We use unique ingredients and complexes to make sure that each product delivers true benefits”, said McLaren.
