SCHWARZKOPF celebrates 120 years of style creation

Here’s to over a century of outstanding, consistent and successful product innovation.


An international hair cosmetics and care brand that truly stands apart from the rest, Schwarzkopf is the industry’s trend-setter for creativity and style as well as consistent and superior innovation. This is a brand of leading invention, says Henkel Business Unit Manager, Natalie Van Heerden, who explains that as Schwarzkopf celebrates its exceptionally special not to mention big birthday, there is so much more to look forward to in terms of product technology.

120 years of not only being in business, but also being the leaders in cutting-edge research and development, is an incredible achievement for any haircare brand,”

she says.

“However, you’re only as good as your last innovation which is what Schwarzkopf is known for - and this year is no exception. This means we’ll see many new and exciting launches into the market and of course, ones that will set the trends,”

says Van Heerden.

Innovation is the absolute DNA of the brand, and every two to three years, product formulations are updated so that only the very best is offered to the consumer.

“The result is that the latest and best formulas that really deliver - are in our products,”

explains Van Heerden.

“For Schwarzkopf, innovation never sleeps.”

Creativity is also a dynamic element of the brand’s DNA, and key in celebrating 120 years of standout style! Schwarzkopf has teamed up with hair expert Armin Morbach to create 2018 Looks, a collection of four current and inspired styles that really capture the mood of now; cool, nonchalant, modern, and subtly elegant. From fashion shows to the international music scene and Instagram, Morbach drew inspiration from many platforms to reflect the consumer’s new self-confidence. It’s with this zeitgeist in mind that Schwarzkopf, to commemorate its 120th anniversary, is launching a new campaign entitled #createyourownstyle

It perfectly encapsulates the brand’s ethos and the mood of now: individuality and confidence for 120 years through innovative hair cosmetics and care.

Happy Birthday Schwarzkopf – here’s to another 120 years of pushing the boundaries in innovation, excellence in efficacy and, of course creating beautiful trend-forward style.
