“Beauty Industry Tools, born from a hair designer’s creativity, are made to be gentle to hair, people and with respect to the environment.” - Young Soo Park


Beauty tools have been around for over 3,000 years. During this time, these tools have remained low-tech, realizing little improvement despite changes in culture, fashion, work habits and technology. Today's beauty environment demands that we refine the tools that have existed before our birth.

My Philosophy As an Inventor & Hair Designer

  1. Getting maximum results with minimal effort.
  2. The inventor uses the tools he creates.
  3. Speed, simplicity, and economizing our natural resources.
  4. Regardless of the style, a quick turnaround and a delighted client are not mutually exclusive things.
  5. The advancement of one's tool selection skill improves together with one's tool usage technique.
  6. The professional knows how to use the right tool for the right circumstance.
  7. A client service duration is a time process in the stylist's day.
  8. The key to a comfortable salon environment is a well-planned salon space.
  9. Hair is a living material of nature which is not easily damaged in the hair styling process.

A Properly Prepared and Equipped Salon Will Have

  1. A well-trained staff, efficiently working together to accomplish each day's work.
  2. Processes and facilities designed to optimize workflow and to maximize staff harmony.
  3. The owner's goals and philosophy in cut, chemical, and pre/post service are clearly visible and well-suited to the salon's operation.
