I opened my first salon in Portland, Oregon, when I was 10 years old. I found an antique barber’s chair in the basement and soon was styling and fixing the hair of all the kids in the neighborhood. Even at that age, My interest in skin care came a few years later and by the time I was a teenager I was comparing results and reading labels and asking a lot of questions. I began to make the connection between natural skin care, diet, plants and herbs, and true health and beauty.
My love and curiosity for hair and skin care grew through high school, lead to cosmetology school, and landed me in Los Angeles in my early 20s. As my career flourished working in high-end hair salons, I began looking for products containing specific, plant ingredients and couldn’t find them anywhere. I then began to develop my own botanical formulations, sharing my hand-crafted creations with clients who, to my delight, started experiencing visible results and renewed skin health… and wanted more! And so, starting with my cult favorite Cacao Antioxidant Mask, Josh Rosebrook Skin and Hair Care was born.
