37 years in the industry. 3 generations. 1 vision. It was 1975 when Al and Dorothy Kahler, along with their 3 sons, decided
to open their own Wholesale Beauty Distribution Company. They had
humble beginnings starting off their company in their garage in
Denver, Colorado. Over the years they were able to grow into an office
front and eventually add on a full warehouse and class room. They were
considered industry visionaries with their rapid growth and industry
related know how. By 1987 they grew into the number 1 per capita
distributor in the United States for many professional hair care
After experiencing health complications due to industry related exposure
to chemicals such as ammonia, Al Kahler lost the fight to COPD in
2007. Son, Ken Kahler thought about getting out of the beauty industry
after this loss. It was then that the third generation, Ken Kahler's
son and daughter; Donovan and Brittany Kahler decided that they could
not leave Al's legacy behind.
Knowing that innovative products existed in the beauty industry that no longer
contained harmful chemicals like ammonia, Brittany and Donovan pushed
forward in distribution.
It was in 2008 that Ken, Donovan, and Brittany re-opened International
Beauty & Supply in hopes of offering beauty professionals health
conscious alternatives to traditional salon products.
International Beauty & Supply is a proud distributor of Faipa's
ammonia free alternatives to hair color and lighteners. Later, they
decided to represent organic lines such as ABBA and Hempz Couture. They
completed the regimen by partnering with T3 appliances - whose tools
offer conditioning effects making it healthier on your hair for you to
blow dry, than to air dry.
International Beauty & Supply is proud of all of the products that
they offer. They are proud to continue the legacy that Al and Dorothy
Kahler left behind, as visionaries in the vastly evolving hair care
industry. And they are proud to remain a family owned and operated company.
