History

We’ve grown into a dynamic company who represents brands that lead the way in innovation and design.

The Beauty Collective is a new name, but we’ve been around for a while. In fact current Company Director & Innovation Manager Jan Cunningham has been in the business of creating hair and beauty products since the 1960’s. At this time she created her first hair accessory - the VaVa -two overlocking beads on a woven elastic band.

But as we’ve grown up so have our responsibilities. We now design and manufacture brands as well as distribute like minded brands that we love just as much as our own.
