R+Co is to hair what the Traveling Wilburys were to music: a bona fide supergroup. Created by three world-renowned styling gurus—Garren, Howard MacLaren, and Thom Priano—R+Co is a boundary-pushing collective of some of the most forward-thinking, rule-bending hairstylists in the biz. Each stylist brings a wealth of unique experience to the table, too. The legendary Garren has a high-fashion resumé a mile long, and has run his hands through some of pop culture’s most influential heads of hair. (Victoria Beckham’s pixie, anyone?) Priano is one of the world’s top men’s groomers, with a client list full of Hollywood’s elite, including Brad Pitt and David Bowie. And finally, McLaren is a master educator and former creative director of some of the most influential hair brands of our time. (Toni & Guy and Bumble & bumble, for starters.)
Because R+Co was created by real-life, working stylists, much of its innovation was born of necessity. Garren, Thom and Howard’s years of combined experience gave them a keen understanding of what consumers (and stylists) really want from their haircare, allowing them to create products so one-of-a-kind, there’s literally no comparison. What’s more, the brand’s collective approach to beauty keeps them on the cutting edge—each stylist brings something wholly unique to the equation, something that the other might never have thought of. Because of this, R+Co’s perspective is constantly evolving, and they consistently push the boundaries of what a haircare brand can be. In an industry that’s ever-changing, R+Co is poised to stay one step ahead.

What if you could weightlessly soften and condition hair in one step? Enter Analong: a multitasking cleansing conditioner that thoroughly cleans and hydrates hair without weighing it down. Infused with argan oil, it nourishes and hydrates hair, leaving it shiny, smooth and refreshed in one go.
One part dry shampoo, one part styling paste, this unique formula absorbs oil and grease while adding texture and shape, helping you rock your best second day hair ever.
This multi-tasking spray pretty much does it all—it acts as a detangler, protects hair from heat styling, brushing, and other potential damage, and evens out the porosity in your hair so that products adhere evenly.
