Together. A Passion For Hair


In 1898, Hans Schwarzkopf a qualified chemist in Berlin, opens a tiny drugstore with a popular perfume section. Who could have predicted that his business would go on to become one of the most significant hair care companies in the world?

He disliked the expensive oils and harsh soaps used to wash hair and was inspired to create a better solution. His first product was a "powder shampoo" that dissolves in water. This was an easy-to-use affordable solution and was an instant hit.more

In 1927, Hans introduced the first ever liquid shampoo to the market. The demand fuelled fast-paced growth and prompted the opening of the very first hairdressing training centre: the "Schwarzkopf Institute for Hair Hygiene".

Soon Hans was supplying his ‘shampoo with the black head’ to every drugstore in Berlin, and had international distribution to Holland.
