meet the founders
BRUSH was founded in 2017 by Bryan and Justin, a dynamic duo driven by their passion for hairstyling. As the proud founders of the top-rated salon in Amsterdam Oud zuid/de Pijp for three consecutive years they and their talented team have established BRUSH as the go-to place for unrivaled quality and service. They are incredibly grateful to the locals, internationals, influencers, and magazines that have embraced BRUSH and become part of their thriving community.
Where it all started…
Bryan’s journey in the hairdressing industry began at the young age of 15. Within just three years, his exceptional talent led him to win the prestigious Chair Talent Award. This achievement opened doors for him to work at Amsterdam Fashion Week and participate in various TV productions, fueling his inspiration and creative vision.
Meanwhile, Justin successfully completed his law studies at the University of Utrecht. However, his affinity for beauty, particularly in the realm of hairstyling, had always been present. Following his mother and grandmother footsteps, who were both hairstylists, Justin developed a deep appreciation for the artistry and craftsmanship involved.
In 2016, Bryan and Justin crossed paths, and their love story merged seamlessly with their shared passion for grooming. Fuelled by Bryan’s expertise and experiences, Justin developed his own fervor for hairstyling. Their combined dedication led them to open BRUSH in 2017, bringing their mutual dream to life.
