About Peter Lamas
Cuban-born Peter Lamas immigrated to New York City in 1961 at the age of 17. Shortly after earning his cosmetology license, his skill earned him a coveted position to train with Paul Mitchell at the Vidal Sassoon Salon. Vidal Sassoon was known for its intensive, hands-on training and helped Peter perfect his craft. After working at Vidal Sassoon for 3 years, the legendary Kenneth Batelle made him an offer to work in the ultra-chic Kenneth Townhouse Salon in mid-Manhattan.
The Kenneth Salon Townhouse was a fashion Mecca for Hollywood celebrities, political leaders, members of high-society and music artists. During his years at the Kenneth Townhouse Salon, Peter’s clients included Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Diana Ross, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Gloria Vanderbilt and Faye Dunaway to name just a few.
Peter was in-demand to do hair/makeup for editorial photo shoots at Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour and Mademoiselle, as well as magazine cover work and national print advertising. With several years of experience under his belt, Peter put all of his beauty and business expertise to good use with the opening of his own salon, “The Reapers.” Launched in the 1970’s, “The Reapers” was on the cutting edge of fashion and beauty - known for stylish cuts that were not only flattering for each individual client, but easy to maintain. Peter’s salon became so popular, it expanded to three locations in Manhattan: the Upper East Side, the West Side, and the Wall Street area.
As a result of a series of personal experiences relating to family, close friends and clients, Peter became acutely aware of the scary reality that many common beauty products contain harsh, irritating ingredients that can have harmful consequences.

The Peter Lamas Philosophy by Peter Lamas, Company Founder
"My mother worked as a bookkeeper in a paper mill. The offices there seemed to always be covered in a thin layer of dust from the cardboard and paper formulation. My mother often wore a mask over her nose and mouth at work to keep from breathing the dust. I recall reading once, towards the end of her career, that people who worked in such places had a higher risk of developing multiple myloma (bone cancer) than the general population due to the chemicals used in the manufacturing process. Shortly after she retired, my mother was diagnosed with terminal multiple myloma.
Then there are the three close family friends -three sisters in their 40's- all were diagnosed with breast cancer within a year of each other. Their doctors advised them that common chemical fertilizers the women had regularly been exposed to growing up on a farm, probably played a central role in their getting the disease.
I have read studies that show beauty salon workers, like hair stylists and nail technicians, are five times more likely to develop multiple myloma than the general public.
And then there was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, a client for whom I did hair and frequently applied hair dye. Ms. Kennedy died too young from Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cancer. Her doctors have stated publicly they believe her hair dye probably contributed to causing her cancer.
These experiences, and many others, were epiphanies for me. They created a personal awareness of the frightening reality that many common products especially health and beauty products which we all apply to our hair, skin, teeth and bodies - can have devastating consequences for our long-term health.
Equally alarming, I discovered that little regulation exists in the beauty industry, and that many of the products on the shelf of your local department store, beauty salon or supermarket contain irritating and harmful ingredients, even known carcinogens.
It is with this hard-learned perspective and a drive to research all I could about health, beauty and ingredients that I founded Peter Lamas Products. Although we remain motivated to keep up on the latest beauty and fashion trends, we are even more adamant about remaining aware of the latest scientific issues surrounding beauty ingredients and safety. Peter Lamas strives to stay ahead of the curve, using the most innovative technologies the industry has to offer. Our aim is to create high performance products to deliver stunning results that last - and that support a healthy life and lifestyle.
Since the inception of Peter Lamas Products, we have been vegan -- we have never used animal by-products or animal testing. Our hair care line was one of the first ever to be paraben-free and sodium lauryl sulphate-free. All of our products are paraben and petrochemical-free.
Each product uses a synergy of exotic extracts, powerful botanicals and potent herbs to enhance all skin and hair types. Our company is committed to offering natural and organic products that are free of harmful chemicals and perform to a professional standard. Peter Lamas unites nature and healthy science for effective products that deliver on their promise." ~Peter Lamas
