Zahir Dossa, Hien Nguyen, and Joshua Maciejewski founded Function of Beauty in 2015 after realizing that you could purchase customized makeup, skincare products, even custom earplugs, but when it came to shampoo and conditioner, clients had to make do with whatever was on the shelf.
Function of Beauty has clients fill out a questionnaire about their hair, then customizes shampoo and conditioner to fit a client’s special needs.
The company’s success has been nothing short of phenomenal. Just two years after founding, the company was valued at $110 million. This enables the founders to enjoy what they love most; flying.
Function of Beauty is also earth-friendly, making all plastic parts from recycled materials, caps are made from aluminum that is made to be recycled, and products are NOT tested on animals.
CEO Zahir Dossa admits that the product isn’t cheap, but it also is not made in China or Taiwan, but at a factory in Pennslyvania.
Function of Beauty maintains a corporate office in New York, New York.
