R+Co is a collective of some of the most forward-thinking, rule-bending hairstylists in the business. We are a think tank of top editorial and salon stylists and educators—with a combined century of hairdressing knowledge and experience—and we make sure that we have more than one viewpoint on everything we do.
R+Co is about an experience. The packaging and fragrances were designed to enhance that experience and evoke a feeling, place, style or attitude. You’ll know just by looking at a bottle or tube what a product is meant to do, and the subtle yet sophisticated fragrances—meant for both men and women.
Our products are formulated without parabens, sulfates (SLS or SLES), mineral oil and petrolatum. They are all vegetarian, cruelty-free, gluten-free and color-safe.
Howard McLaren has been the creative director of some of the most influential hair brands of our time. From Toni & Guy to Bumble & bumble, his perspective has informed generations of hairdressers across multiple continents. He is often credited with re-establishing razor cutting as a true technique.

With R+Co, Howard has finally come to a place of real differentiation. Howard's goal is to create a brand identity that will attract, inspire and push both hairdressers and consumers to want, expect and, eventually demand more.
