meet the founders
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 unrivaled quality and service BRUSH became the go to place for many. We are so thankful for all the locals, internationals, influencers and magazines that have already become part of our BRUSH community.
Where it all started…
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 tv-productions which resulted in a big source of inspiration. Every year his experiences lit his fire even more to elevate the dutch hair industry to the next level.
Justin successfully 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.
When he met Bryan in 2016 they became a (love and business) couple. By watching Bryan’s work and listening to all his experiences he developed the same passion for hair.
Together they opened the salon in 2017 and made their mutual dream come true. “We aspire to house a team of professional hair and make-up artists who are dedicated to make a real difference in enhancing your distinctive beauty and inner happiness. By taking genuine interest to get to know you and your lifestyle, making a true connection and using the latest innovative techniques we love to create your natural perfection together!”
After following courses from the USA to Australia and training with internationally renowned hair stylists perfecting their craftsmanship, they are now sharing all the latest international trends. “We are committed to make BRUSH the best, most innovative salon while maintaining that low key dutch spirit and accessible relaxed feeling for everyone.”
Enhancing one’s naturally distinctive beauty with modern techniques is what we do. Our full transparency and no nonsense culture ensures a genuine connection and relationship of trust between you and your stylist.
