Schwarzkopf Professional News


Schwarzkopf Professional showcases their global initiative in a brand-new documentary series.


Through long-running partnerships with NGOs and a network of hairdressers, Schwarzkopf Professional transforms the lives of socially disadvantaged young adults through their Shaping Futures hairdresser training programme.


To celebrate the incredible dedication of everybody involved in this social initiative – and to highlight the difference it brings to hundreds of lives around the world – Schwarzkopf Professional is proud to release the documentary: “Inside Shaping Futures”.


The documentary takes you on a journey into the emotional world of Shaping Futures.


Inside views are depicted by NGOs, hairdresser trainers, Schwarzkopf Professional partners and the Shaping Futures students themselves.


"It's quite a unique experience for all of us that are involved...the passion that the students have to learn and to advance in their life is as equally touching for us, as the experience of the training is for them.”
– Coralie Loth, Shaping Futures Manager at Schwarzkopf Professional

OSiS+ Long Hair Texture


Styling long hair is changing and moving away from hyper-polished, high-maintenance looks. Today's long hair clients want a more low-key, natural look with movement and texture. Plus, they want it quickly!


Schwarzkopf Professional’s leading styling brand, OSiS+, has created a new texture styling range that provides light-weight texture, effortless volume and instant root-lift. The four brand new products within the range include: a dry texture spray, soft volumising powder, dry shampoo foam and dry conditioner.


Invisible performance, innovative science, feather-light action and ultra-dry formulas make heavy, sticky, artificial looks history.


Thanks to innovative Friction Styling Technology, the OSiS+ Long Hair Texture styling range is able to hold hair beautifully, with natural movement, volume and texture.


The Friction Styling Technology promotes:

  • Lightweight texture, volume and root-lift
  • Powdery hair feel
  • No helmet hair
  • Style reactivation by scrunching

With a styling solution for long hair, the OSiS+ Long Hair Texture range opens up a new world of effortless possibilities.


Discover Schwarzkopf Professional's 1st blonde recovery regime to leverage the power of Vitamin C.


Pollution, dust, and hard water often give especially chemically-processed blonde hair a brassy or slightly green tone reflection. BLONDME's Detoxifying System has been formulated to not only counteract dull, brassy or green tones, but to also protect the hair from environmental aggressors.


The 3 part system includes: the Purifying Bonding Shampoo to remove impurities and mineral build-up; the Shot to recover brightness and shine with Vitamin C when mixed with BLONDME Keratin Restore Bonding Mask; and the Bi-Phase Bonding & Protecting Spray, a lightweight protective mist to nourish and shield the hair from environmental aggressors.


The range features integrated bonding technology that helps to create new bonds within the hair fibre. With Vitamin C, Amino Acid complex, Allantoin, and Malic Acid, known for their detoxifying properties.

Hair artists and clients alike can now discover a new type of hold as the OSiS+ Session Label brand welcomes a new styling hero to its portfolio: OSiS+ Session Label Super Dry Memory Net.


OSiS+ Session Label Super Dry Memory Net is a super concentrated hairspray that dries in an instant but stays malleable. This innovative new generation hairspray allows hair to be brushed through, whilst still holding its shape – perfect for hairdressers wanting to achieve the ultimate in invisible styling.


For a flexible yet durable hold – with an ultra-long-lasting memory effect – the clever spray system disperses the highly-concentrated formula onto the hair in a unique way for a completely new type of hold. Microscopic droplets of hairspray dry in an instant forming an extremely fine and flexible net on the hair for durable control. Plus, thanks to the concentrated formula, less product is needed to achieve the same hold compared to a conventional hairspray.


“The thing that makes OSiS+ Session Label Super Dry Memory Net AMAZING is the application; when you apply the product it's very lightweight... it dries instantly with a super dry texture. It's also flexible, so when you brush the hair out you can easily remould the shape...”


– Schwarzkopf Professional Global Session Ambassador, Tyler Johnston

IGORA #RoyalTakeOver Disheveled Nudes


Throughout 2018, the IGORA #RoyalTakeOver sees three of the most inspiring digital hairdressing influencers team-up with three of the world's leading session colourists. In January, the IGORA #RoyalTakeOver bought us DUSTED ROUGE, where UK-based, Schwarzkopf Professional Colour Ambassador, Lesley Jennison and Brazilian Colour Specialist, Jean Philippe Santos joined forces to re-invent reds.


Now the IGORA #RoyalTakeOver co-creation story continues with DISHEVELED NUDES; a collection of new nude tones that push the powdery colour palette to the edge by adding contrast and character…


DISHEVELED NUDES has been co-created by Australian-based, International Schwarzkopf Professional Ambassador, Matt Clements and Spanish Colour Visionnaire and member of X-Presion Creativos, Jorge Cáncer. Their combined inspiration and creative process allowed them to develop a new take on nude tones: vanguard nuances with tarnished blues and greens full of character keep the shades strong and edgy, yet still soft at the same time… a perfect take on the modern nude.


Discover the inspirational looks created with the DISHEVELED NUDES shades today!


The daily pressures of life can have a negative effect on physical and mental well-being, leading to stress, headaches and fatigue. More and more, individuals are turning to the healing power of Essential Oils to balance the mind, body and spirit. To offer an oasis of harmony away from everyday stresses we have launched our new premium hair care brand powered by oils, Oil Ultime.


Inspired by modern aromatherapy, Oil Ultime has been developed with precious Essential Oils as well as 100% natural, purified oils to REbalance and REilluminate hair, scalp and mind.


The in-salon Harmony Ceremony is a sensorial journey based on aromatherapy that combines Essential Oils with an exfoliating scalp massage to beautify hair and balance the mind.


Each in-salon ceremony is combined with the Oil Ultime Oil-In-Scrub, which contains luxurious Lotus Flower Extract and precious Argan Shell particles to remove impurities and release clogged up pores.


For beauty that radiates from the inside out, hair is then cleansed and beautified with high-performing, yet lightweight oil formulas for either fine to medium hair (Oil Ultime Marula & Rose Oil range) or medium to coarse hair (Oil Ultime Argan & Barbary Fig Oil range).


Finally, as a finishing touch, a complementary Oil Ultime Finishing Oil is selected to complete the service, leaving hair illuminated with radiant shine and sublime softness.


Find your inner and outer beauty with Oil Ultime today.
