the PROFESSIONAL BRANDS WE USE
MATRIX, a leading professional haircare and hair color company in the United States, is part of L’Oreal USA’s Professional Products Division.
Matrix was founded in 1980 by the American husband and wife hairdressing team, Arnie and Sydell Miller. Before he founded Matrix, Mr. Miller was a hairdresser for over 20 years. Mr. Miller decided to try his hand at running a different kind of company in 1971, when he developed individually applied eyelashes. He formed a firm, Ardell, to market the product to retailers and to beauty salons. Ardell eventually created and sold a hair color product.
In the late 1970s, Mr. Miller saw that the retail market was shrinking and decided to sell Ardell in 1980 in order to concentrate on building Matrix, which would market its products only to professional haircare buyers.
“I felt that in order to be successful, I needed more focus. I chose the professional end because I knew the business and I liked it better,” he said.
The Millers wanted to provide hairdressers with a comprehensive range of products that would help them grow their businesses and provide the means to take full advantage of their talent and creativity.
Now, over two decades later, the Millers’ original ideas still stand strong, and Matrix is committed to the development of the salon professional, offering a wide range of haircare, haircolor and texturizing products including: Biolage, Oil Wonders, Total Results, COLORINSIDER, SOCOLOR, Color Sync, Gloss Sync, Logics, LightMaster, V-Light, Vavoom, COLORGRAPHICS, Opti.Collection, Opti.Effects, Opti.Smooth and Style Wave.
BIOLAGE was created in 1990 in the United States by founders Arnie and Sydell Miller, both hairdressers, who pioneered the use of botanicals to care for hair. They believed in the power of nature to support the wellbeing of both stylists and clients. Today, BIOLAGE is a worldwide leader in Professional Haircare with iconic ranges including HydraSource, ColorLast, and Biolage Advanced as well as a full range of Biolage Styling sold in salons around the world.

Q: What is natural-origin?
A: We consider an ingredient to be of natural origin if it is unchanged from its natural state or has undergone processing yet still retains greater than 50% of its molecular structure from the original plant or mineral source
