About Verb

According to an educator at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, Verb was originally founded in Austin, Texas, before establishing its headquarters in New York, New York. Their line of unisex hair care products bridges the gap between drug store and salon-quality hair care as their entire line of color-safe products remains cruelty and paraben-free with no harmful sulfates or gluten. Key natural product ingredients include: 

  • Green Tea, Sunflower Seed, Seaweed, and Bamboo Extract
  • Moringa, Coconut, and Argan oil
  • Aloe Vera
  • Pro-Vitamin B5
  • Glycerin
  • Shea Butter
  • Hydrolyzed Soy Protein 
  • Natural Sea Salt
  • Kelp

About the Verb Founders

Verb was founded in 2009 and has a unique origin story beginning in a salon chain in Austin, Texas. Jayson Rapaport and Michael Portman initially established Birds Barbershop, a salon concept charging a set price based on hair length instead of gender, in 2006 when they decided to launch their own hair care brand. They first saw the need for an affordable salon-quality product when the cost of hair care products began to surpass the price of their salon haircuts. Now, their vegan-friendly, unisex brand continues to focus on providing high-end product formulas at a reasonable price that can be loved by all hair enthusiasts alike. 

Verb Products We Love

At the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lee’s Summit, our stylists love using Verb products to create beautiful and healthy looks for our clients. Check out some of our favorite products below!

Ghost Oil—Verb’s Ghost Oil is a universal hair oil comprised of bamboo extract, soy protein, and moringa oil to retain moisture and smooth the hair. Simply pump three drops of oil onto your damp or dry hair to smooth random flyaway hairs, eliminate frizz, and create an added luster! 

Volume Dry Texture Spray—A newer addition to the Verb family, the Volume Dry Texture Spray helps build additional volume through the use of pro-vitamin b5 and aloe vera. To add texture and body to your hair, shake the product and spray an even layer eight to 10 inches away from your head in areas where extra volume or texture is needed. 

Sea Shampoo—The Sea Shampoo is the perfect product for those wanting additional texture and grit. This product cleanses the hair and helps create added body for a natural tousled look through the use of ingredients like sea salt, seaweed extract, and kelp. When applying this product, massage a small amount onto your wet hair, lather, rinse, and air dry!

Hydrating Conditioner—This nourishing conditioner helps repair hair damage while incorporating argan oil, meadowfoam seed oil, and sunflower seed extract for an added shine. Add a small amount to your clean hair and leave it in for three to five minutes before rinsing.
