Where it all started…

BRUSH was founded by Bryan & Justin in 2017. They and their team are proud to be the top rated salon in Amsterdam Oud zuid/de Pijp for three years in a row and due to it’s unrivalled quality and service BRUSH became the go to place for many. Locals, expats, influencers and magazines discovered their craft and became part of our BRUSH community.

Bryan was only 15 years old when he made his entrance into the hairdressing industry. After only 3 years he won his first major competition The Chair Talent Award. This brought him the opportunity to work at Amsterdam Fashion Week and behind the scenes at tv-productions which resulted in a big source of inspiration. In the meantime, he gained a lot of skills working for several renowned salons and artists. Every year his experiences lit his fire even more to elevate the dutch hair industry to the next level.

Justin succesfully completed his law studies at the University of Utrecht. Back then he always had an affinity for beauty with a special feeling for hairdressing as his mother and grandmother have also worked as hairstylists in the past. During his studies he knew becoming a lawyer wasn’t what he wanted to be but he didn’t know how to shape it differently. Until he met Bryan in 2016 and they became a couple. By watching Bryan’s work and listening to all his experiences he developed the same passion for hair and realized this was his chance find happiness by taking the jump into hairdressing world.

Together they opened the salon in 2017 and made their mutual dream come true. First Bryan personally taught Justin everything while he was working on the paper work. Later they followed courses from the USA to Australia and trained with internationally renowned hair stylists perfecting their craftmanship.

Now sharing all the latest international trends they are committed to make  BRUSH the best, most innovative salon while maintaining that low key dutch spirit and accessible relaxed feeling for everyone.
