Designed as part Warholian think tank, part research and development product hub and part stylist education collaborative, three hair stylists with more than a century of cumulative experience have formed a new brand. R+Co, or Rogue and Co., is the brainchild of Howard McLaren, Garren Defazio (known professionally simply as Garren) and Thom Priano, and is designed to push product innovation while at the same time harkening consumers back to a classic “hairdressing” experience.
“What has made other collectives amazing, and Andy Warhol’s Factory comes to mind, was this perfect storm of creativity that allowed magic to happen and I think our company shows a little of that, where we celebrate the culture of hairdressing,” said Tev Finger, president of R+Co. “It allows us to break new ground on not only what product should be, but also on what stylist education should be, what the salon experience could be and where we think we can help turn the direction of the industry for future generations.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
