Like many consumers, we were concerned about the toxic chemicals in existing products. One day, I made the suggestion to my husband, Robert, that he should create his own line of hair care products.
As an award winning master stylist, Robert knew from experience that we could design a natural product that had the benefits of high-performance products without the harmful chemicals. It all started with a revolutionary shampoo that was sulfate-free, paraben-free, and completely color-safe. The overwhelming reception for this initial product sparked the development of an entire line of performance organics.
We provide a better, safer, and healthier product alternative. Our comprehensive line of high performance products is a refreshing alternative to the status quo of the hair and body care industry, as our products are completely toxin free, 100% vegan, and made with 100% organic ingredients.
We are committed to moving the industry forward through continued research and development of products that are safer, healthier, non-toxic, and high performance.

1897 — Robert's great grandfather Nunzio Sanzi immigrated to the USA from Pantone, Catanzaro, Italy, with his young wife, Carmelia. On his naturalization documents, he listed Barber as his profession. Hence leaving Robert an Official United States Document that he is indeed a 4th Generation Hairstylist. They had five children; one of these was Robert's grandfather Nick Sanzi. He also chose barber as his profession; seeing an opportunity to expand the business, he went back to school to get his cosmetology license. At that time, men and women were segregated, and men went to the barbershop and women the beauty salon. His grandfather was the first in his county to be licensed in both Barbering and Cosmetology; subsequently, he could then work on both men and women in the same salon.
1940's — The Sanzi name was synonymous as the premier hair salon in a bustling county seat during the coal/coke boom in Western Pennsylvania. Nick, unfortunately, suffered a massive heart attack and passed. Ann, his wife (Robert's grandmother), had three young boys at home to take care of. She moved swiftly to put them into boarding school and went to beauty school to become a licensed manicurist to keep the family business thriving, which she continued until her passing in 1999.
Two of Ann's three sons went on to have lifetime careers as hairstylists. Ron had several salons and multiple beauty schools, where many of his children learned the craft and work. Ray, the youngest son, also went on to a long and successful salon and platform education career. His three sons were also hair stylists.
1960 - 1980s — Fran Sanzi (Robert's Mom) is finally convinced and begins working for Ann Sanzi as a prestigious hairstylist working at the time in Cleveland, Ohio, and Pittsburgh, Pa. Here at Sanzi Hair Fashions, Richard (Robert's dad) was home on break from the Air Force and met Fran. They fell in love, had two boys, and opened up their salon called Fran and Marci's (Robert's Aunt).
1988 — Robert withdraws from engineering classes at the University of Pittsburgh and is convinced by his father and cousins to give his uncle's beauty school a try. Catching on quickly, he soon begins to win haircutting awards and wins the Pennsylvania State cosmetology Grand Champion Award 3 years in male and female hair cutting. During this time, he is a platform educator for Paul Mitchell and Abba products and managing a very large salon.
1989 — Fran Sanzi opens Expressions in Hair and convinces Robert that West Virginia needs his skill set. He is still working here to this day. Robert is also a 3rd generation hairstylist on his Mom's side.
1992 — Fran Sanzi is diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoes extensive surgeries and treatments for several months. It is at this time that Robert begins to research healthier safer alternative hair care and body products
for use in his salon for a safer environment for both staff and clients. He soon found out he was at the forefront of a new movement in the beauty industry.
2007 — Robin Sanzi (Robert's Wife) convinces Robert that with all this family history and knowledge he has it's time to begin our own product line and use the family name. Robert knows this is no easy task but begins the process, after several failed attempts, he fires the first lab and moves on to a very successful formula (color true shampoo), the first high lather sulfate and paraben-free formula on the market. Sanzi Performance Organics is born.
Robin and Robert begin to evolve the product line into using Organic Ingredients, ensuring Cruelty Free ingredients for a Vegan Formula and the staple of the brand still to this day - High Performance Sulfate-Paraben-Gluten-Free Organic Vegan formulas - so everyone can have a great hair day!
