Over 35 years ago, two friends were inspired to start a company that would support the success of hairdressers and provide luxury hair care at an affordable price. The rest is history. For Paul Mitchell, producing the highest quality professional hair care available is simply not enough. Paul Mitchell is (and always will be) dedicated to making our world a more beautiful place. They were the first professional beauty company to stand up against animal testing and their charitable efforts continue to set the standard for giving in our industry. A commitment to caring for people and the planet is a driving force in everything they do. Some things never change. Paul Mitchell Co-founder and Chairman of the Board John Paul DeJoria and Co-owner Angus Mitchell still steer the company according to its original vision. Despite offers from public corporations to sell, they refuse because of our initial vow to stand by the professional beauty industry. The men behind the bottle make Paul Mitchell one of the most recognized and respected names in the industry.

Leen and Bertus started learning mens haircutting when they were just fourteen years old. With their love of classic barbering and the influences of rock n roll, custom culture and its subcultures, it was inevitetable that one day they would open Schorem Barbier.
Schorem is an old school men-only barbershop in the heart of the working class city of Rotterdam. The shop specializes in the classic cuts that have proven themselves over the decades: pompadours, flattops, contours and the other styles featured on Schorem’s famous barbershop posters.
Since its opening, Schorem has been frequented by greasers, rockers, bikers, psychobillys, ruffians and other fine gentleman scumbags from every echelon of society. With more than fifty years of barbering and grooming experience these Rotterdam Barbers have now formulated pomades worthy of their exacting standards. As old school barbers they dug deep into the history of pomades to formulate what they belief are the world’s finest, Reuzel.
The flow™ story is one that has evolved from a passionate desire to provide a completely new level of performance to the professional hair care industry through radical reinvention and an unwavering commitment to sustainability. As they set out to understand the spectrum of today’s product options, we quickly realized that the marketplace has been singing the same tune for a very long time. Whether through emulated ingredients, borrowed technologies or dated formulation structures, the ultimate result has been steady repetition of the status quo. Similar products, similar performance, similar results.
In an industry that demands innovation, they recognized a fundamental need for truly new technology. At flow™, they have meticulously crafted their formulations from the inside out. They harnessed performance at the source by revolutionizing hair care’s most important ingredient first…WATER. By starting with the purist, most crystalline foundation possible, they have developed hair care’s very first dynamic technology system called H5 ARCHITECTURE™. This customizable system strategically delivers the maximum benefit potential of every ingredient they use, directly to the hair. Instantly, weightlessly, and with unrivaled intensity. The result is a complete line of sustainably manufactured professional hair care products that provide a new and liberated sense of technical performance.
