HairClub History


For more than 40 years, HairClub has researched everything there is to know about hair health. And we’ve worked with the latest technologies to develop total hair solutions that work for anyone, no matter their age, hair type or level of hair loss. But of all our accomplishments over the last four decades, there’s one thing we’re most proud of—showing our clients just how much we care about them.

HairClub has helped more than 600,000 men and women restore their hair, changing the way they experience life. We’ve built our company on these successful transformations. They’re part of our history. Now, it’s your turn to be part of HairClub history.

Love your hair, live your life.™

 

1976

Started by Sy Sperling.

Experiencing hair loss himself and unhappy with the poor quality of available solutions, Sy Sperling finds a solution of his own. He starts HairClub for Men and the business begins to grow by word of mouth.

1982

“I’m not only the HairClub president, I'm also a client®.”

HairClub airs its first national television commercials, featuring Sy Sperling saying, “I’m not just the HairClub president, I’m also a client.” As he says that classic line, Sy holds up his own before photo, revealing the extent of his hair loss. The iconic spots quickly become a cultural phenomenon and within the first month of airing, HairClub receives 10,000 telephone calls.

1983

Hello, Canada.

To deliver hair restoration services to a wider audience, HairClub expands to include Canada. Toronto becomes the first of 10+ Canadian centers across the country.

1995

For the ladies.

Responding to a void in the market, HairClub introduces customized female hair restoration solutions to meet the unique needs of women experiencing hair loss.

2000

New ownership. New chapter.

After decades of success, Sy Sperling sells HairClub to a private equity firm. Four years later, HairClub is sold to hair care giant, Regis Corporation.

2002

To the extreme with EXT®.

HairClub introduces EXT Extreme Hair Therapy®, a solution designed for men and women in the earlier stages of hair loss. A combination of at-home products, including FDA-approved Minoxidil, and in-center services help slow further loss and regrow hair.

Launching the LaserComb.

HairClub adds the FDA-cleared LaserComb, a form of low level laser (light) therapy, to its roster of proven hair loss solutions. This state-of-the-art, breakthrough technology stimulates cellular activity in hair follicles to promote growth and slow further loss. 

2013

Purchased by Aderans.

In April, HairClub becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tokyo-based Aderans Co. Ltd., the world’s leading provider of hair loss solutions, with more than 150 locations throughout Asia and Europe.

2014

A closer look at hair.

After years of research and development, HairClub introduces enhanced hair analysis technology for use in client consultations. The technology provides an in-depth hair and scalp analysis that enables hair health experts to determine the level of a client’s hair loss and which proven solution is right for them.

2015

Introducing Xtrands®.

To expand its non-surgical hair restoration options, HairClub adds Xtrands® alongside its best-selling solution, Xtrands+®. Xtrands offers fast, natural-looking results for men and women in the earlier stages of hair loss.

2017

The first ever HairClub women’s center.

The first HairClub salon devoted exclusively to female clients with hair loss is opened. A brand-new concept, this modern and upscale facility is located in Atlanta, GA, and offers pampering, spa-like services such as manicure and pedicure stations and massage chairs.
