We believe in the uniqueness of individuals, and are committed to making the very most of their authenticity, to enable each type of beauty to be itself, nothing more and nothing less. We love our planet, and nature inspires us to create safe, effective treatments, fully in harmony with the environment. We believe in a dedicated experience for everyone, and want all our users to recover a sense of equilibrium and their own natural wellbeing, as those are the only true sources of beauty.

OUR HISTORY

1966

The company was founded in Milan in 1966 by the Piazzolla family, inspired by a dream of its founder Raffaele Piazzolla, who wanted to create a dedicated, made to measure treatment for each individual user, based on his conviction that each individual is unique and that every type of beauty is authentic.

1970

This was how it all started, with the development of the first professional trichological treatment line, consisting of 32 high quality, specialist products designed for renowned stylists in Milan, who adopted them as one of the tools of their trade and used them as part of a working philosophy that made them unique and incomparable. In this way, the products became ambassadors of style back in the seventies, in the very early days of fashion, consumer behaviour and social renovation. In the years that followed, we were able to complete our business plans with new products for professional stylists, which were subject to a programme of selective distribution on the market.

1996

In 1996, the new generation moved into the company, and, with Roberto Piazzolla, a revolution began which is continuing successfully to this day, with change as the driving force behind constant evolution. 

1999

It was within this atmosphere of transformation and striving for innovation that the new HAIRMED brand was introduced in 1999. This is a healthcare and beauty system for hair designed to create a made to measure treatment plan for each individual user, based on a scientific approach conceived to achieve results, while respecting the life and environment which surrounds us.

Quality, avant-garde and styling

THE GENUINE MADE IN ITALY

Made in Italy means quality, avant-garde styling and elegance, but in combination with tradition. For HAIRMED, Made in Italy means a love of the new, and the design and development of high value cosmetics which reflect our ideals of beauty and our philosophy, with the typical attention for detail and passion of craft culture. Our technical staff work with outside professional specialists and the faculty of engineering at the University of Modena, and we invest in research every year to ensure that our products are able to reinterpret progress and exploit the latest developments in botanical technology.

Every person is unique and uniqueness is beauty

EXPERIENCE MADE TO MEASURE

The HAIRMED philosophy states that there’s no such concept as absolute beauty. We’re convinced that each individual is unique in a way that’s quite simply inimitable, and that this uniqueness is in itself an expression of beauty. HAIRMED offers a wide range of specialist products, which can be combined with each other to act on the skin and hair in a synergic and personalised way. Through this approach, we provide specific consultancy services and avant-garde tools to create a made to measure treatment for each of our users.

ECO-SUSTAINABILITY

HAIRMED promotes the culture of ecosustainability and respect for the environment by looking towards an increasingly green future with zero carbon impact, which can be achieved through the use of renewable energy sources. We believe taking care of and safeguarding nature is a demonstration of consistency in our relations with our main suppliers of raw materials. Our cosmetic products contain from 80% to 95% of ingredients of natural origins, and adhere to the “Cruelty Free” standards. The products have been paraben-free and SLES-free since 1975, and their washing bases have Ecocert certification. Ours is an ethical approach, and our genuine sense of vocation is clearly visible in every aspect of our work. We use 100% recyclable PET and ecological cardboard packaging materials from protected forests subject to reforestation.

Ethics, professionalism, scientifically certified results

RESEARCH AND TRAINING

HAIRMED has taken the decision to invest in research and science. We work in cooperation with the faculty of engineering at the University of Modena, and the TPM, or Mirandola Science and Technology Park for Medicine - Democenter Foundation, which has set up a scientific protocol that certifies the results obtained through the constant use of the specific HAIRMED treatments for the skin and hair. We’re firmly convinced that professional training and specialist studies are the source of personal stimulus and enrichment. We organise workshops and invest in training to pass on an ideal of natural beauty and inspire a health and wellbeing routine based on our HAIRMED values. HAIRMED is a synonym for ethics, professionalism, scientifically certified results and concrete, measurable effects.

Simple, transparent and elegant

ETHICAL TRANSPARENCY

We want to be simple, transparent, elegant and colourful, like any pure, unique spirit, and when we make our products, we always select the best and pay maximum attention to the details of each phase in the production process. All the operations take place within our company, from research to manufacturing and marketing. In this way, we are 100% responsible for the results obtained. We use high quality ingredients and don’t over-use the term “natural”. The science which we apply to the production processes makes use of latest generation chemical synthesis techniques, which are in harmony with the environment, as they are subject to very strict quality standards and, even more importantly, respect the quality of nature, which we might call “The Experience of Plants”. This dual combination guarantees maximum safety and the best possible results for our partners and the users of our products.

ZERO CO2
high social impact reforestation

Respect for the uniqueness of the individual and attention to personal care and the future of the planet have always been part of the DNA and the inspiration behind HAIRMED. In a context of climate change for which human behaviour and the conduct of corporations bear the main responsibility, we couldn’t just stand aside and watch.

With a view to taking concrete action in defence of the environment and persons, we’ve been working with ZeroCo2 on a high social impact reforestation project in Tanzania. This involves planting trees which will help slow down the desertification process, absorb CO2 and sustain local communities.

25% of the forests of Tanzania have disappeared over the last 30 years. The worsening of the climate crisis has caused further uncertainty in the country and led to significant social tensions. As a consequence of erosion, the fields have been broken up by major fracture lines, and this in turn has reduced productivity, raised the levels of isolation and put the livestock at risk.

Riforestation is the first step that needs to be taken to protect the soil from erosion, stabilise the hydrological cycle and sustain the farming families, women especially, as they attempt to resist the climate crisis, while at the same time contributing towards female empowerment. All the trees that we’ve planted with ZeroCo2 will be donated to Masai women who, by taking care of them, will be able to benefit from the crops and resources that they produce, in this way creating food security, supporting their efforts and defending the lands.

IL DIARIO DI LEILA:
a project for solidarity, eco-sustainability and peace

Diario di Lelia, an Italian non-profit organisation which has been working for several decades in an area of southern India affected by poverty and marginalisation, has created a number of small, self-managed women’s cooperatives which, through the production and sale of articles made from scrap and recycled materials (such as costume jewellery with inserts from coconut waste, shopping bags made out of newspapers, etc), offers women and the more vulnerable social groups an important source of financial support, access to microcredit, assistance for families in difficulty and the recovery of abandoned children and young people, by means of a series of occupational training courses. We believe in this project being promoted by Il Diario di Lelia, because it’s an example of concrete action and we share its values, which are the culture of solidarity, ecosustainability and peace. For this reason, all our products are placed in HAIRMED SHOPPING BAGS, hand made by the workers at the Il Diario di Lelia cooperatives with recycled newspapers. In this way, these articles, along with ourselves, become ambassadors for the project and the values which it promotes.

We consider the diversity of each person

FOR HEALTHY SKIN

100 years have passed, and we’re still washing our hair with shampoo. We’ve evolved, we as a company are concerned with biodiversity, and we’re the first and only company to use a system which considers the diversity and uniqueness of each individual. We don’t just wash the skin, we dermologically purify it, and then we go on to cleanse the hair.

We use the same amount of time and the same method, but our approach is radically different.
