Umberto Giannini is an award-winning UK brand that offers professional, salon-approved vegan and cruelty-free hair care products, and it has officially launched in South Africa!
Creating transformational hair care products for every hair type, Umberto Giannini is famous for celebrating natural curls and is obsessed with creating ingenious new formulas to help real women love their hair.
Umberto Giannini was established in 1988 by award-winning British hairdresser Umberto Giannini, and in 1998, Umberto and his partner Claire Shread launched the first Umberto Giannini product range designed to celebrate natural beauty. The brand aims to empower real women by giving them products that enhance their hair’s natural texture, are easy to use, and smell amazing.
Mindfully-made hair care that connects with women, is at the core of the Umberto Giannini brand. All Umberto Giannini products are vegan and cruelty-free and in 2021 they were awarded Certified B Corp™ status, meaning the brand meets the highest standards of social and environmental impact. Formulated without sulphates, parabens and silicones, all products in the range are gentle on the hair and scalp.
“We are styling our way to a vegan hair-love mission that celebrates real women.” – Umberto Giannini.
