Who We Are
Bleach London started out as the world’s first salon focused on colour rather than cutting. Capturing attention with our pioneering techniques, we launched the Bleach London hair range in 2012. We developed innovative products with a low impact on the environment, with a focus on vegan and cruelty free ingredients and recycled/recyclable packaging. The irreverent, DIY spirit of the range captured the imagination of a whole generation of teens and young adults alike, turning Bleach into one of the UK’s biggest independent hair brands. We’re now stocked in major UK retailers and ship internationally from our website to our large cult following worldwide.
