It came to him that, like life, the beauty industry is pretty relentless. So many products, so many tips, and much advice. He thought, as a chef would say of creatinga sauce, ‘reduce reduce reduce’. One is the result of this thinking - initially 3 products that are as simple in ingredient as they are simple to use.
What’s next? Somethings in the pipeline, so keep checking in his salon mirror.
In 1997, Brian founded a physical space, Oya, a salon in Monterey. The spacesoon caught the attention of eyes across the country, with Harpers Bazaar describing it as ‘one of the hottest salons in the western U.S.’ It was a place where he stood behind 1000’s of clients, talking. He realised that it’s not just the act of a cut or restyle they are coming for, they come to converse, to share their moments and situations, in all their shades. They came for a moment for themselves, to be themselves.
