Bryan Thomson-DiPalma
For many years as an artist, technician, educator and developer of products, I’ve been consumed and intrigued by hair. Trained as both a chemical specialist and an herbalist, I’ve straddled two worlds: one that delivered an amazing (but synthetic) palette of possibilities; the other full of ancient wisdom and dedicated to finding natural and holistic answers to health concerns.

I was never fully satisfied by the quality of “natural” products available, and would often concoct my own alternatives. These days, many of my salon clients, still seeking the perfect hair they’ve always wanted, now insist it be with products that are organically derived, detergent-free and with natural fragrances. Thomson-DiPalma represents the convergence of my two callings and all the knowledge I’ve accumulated in both areas. It embodies my deep desire to address individual hair and scalp issues with flexible, holistic solutions that are inherently beautifying.
