Elgon in optimal form, manifesting creativity and dedication for the sake of Beauty and Social responsibility.


2020 promises to be a milestone in the history of Elgon. Turning 50 means being able to take advantage of all the experience and know-how collected, to offer a modern and outstanding service to their clients. They have prepared a rich program of events to reach out to their vast clientele and show the world of professional hairdressers that they are ready, more than ever, to surprise and enchant with attractive ideas, innovative products, and inspiration.

Gianguido Mazzuca, Global Sales Manager – says “In 1970 Elgon was founded by a hairdresser called Domenico Caimano. His aim was to create products for hairstylists seeking quality and fine Italian manufacturing. The 50-year celebration commemorates this ideal, which remains the model of the company today.

In 2020 Elgon launched Generating Uniqueness, which is both a collection and business model that engages hairdressers around the world, helping them grow their business through tailormade services in the salon.
