Page 54 of 67 | September 2018 53 HUM Nutrition Walter Faulstroh (L) and Chris Coleridge (R), cofounders "When we started HUM, we were inspired by the vibrant beauty of hummingbirds. They're incredibly energetic, whiz around all day and are powered by Mother Nature. Hummingbirds have a real feel-good effect, and I also like to hum when I feel extremely happy about life. Our mission is to make people look and feel their absolute best, so HUM was the perfect choice for us." Repêchage Lydia Sarfati, CEO and founder "Repêchage (re-pe-shaj) is French for 'second chance'– in this case, a second chance for beautiful skin. What inspired me to call my company Repêchage were the reactions of those who experienced my first treatment, the Four Layer Facial. ... However, the word's original meaning comes from fishermen trying once more to make a catch by casting out their nets–to literally 're-fish' or 're-pesce'–so the connection to seaweed and the sea was perfect." Mehron Martin Melik, president "My father purchased Plucker & Ahrens in 1927 and renamed the company Mehron–after its founder, Mehron Joseph Melik. Mehron began to privately label some of its products with Estée Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, Max Factor and, most recently, Pat McGrath. From its Broadway roots in the 1920s to Cara Delevingne's silver-painted head at last year's Met Gala, Mehron has been a vital part of revolutionary beauty moments in the last century." ■ Redken Leslie Marino, general manager "Our founder, Paula Kent, revolutionized the professional haircare industry for both stylists and clients with the launch of Redken in 1960. Cofounded with Jheri Redding, a chemist who developed low-pH products for Paula's sensitive hair, Redken is successful today thanks to Paula's dedication to science and her pioneering spirit. The brand was named by combining Redding with Kent, which became the 'Redken' we know and love today!"
