Founded in 1988 in New York City’s financial district, John Allan’s is a long-time favorite of Manhattan gents who appreciate the clubby atmosphere and full-service barbershop treatment (year-long memberships include unlimited visits with haircut, manicure, hot towel, shoe shine, and plenty of beer). Today there are six successful John Allan’s clubs in New York, Chicago, and Toronto. John Allan’s product line launched in 2003, and has gained a loyal following since then, with products for hair, body, and shaving.
Premium but approachable hair care. With styling products with straightforward names like “Matte” and “Tough,” to shampoos and conditioners that address specific needs such as thinning hair (hey, it happens), John Allan’s aims for accesability. There’s no paralyzing plethora of options, just simple, quality products.
John Allan’s products are all made in the U.S.A. and never tested on animals. And yes, for those wondering, John Allan is real guy. He began his career in 1979 in Paris as an apprentice to master stylist Jean Louis David.
