Hairdressers and Graham go way back. In 1967 Graham Webb founded the international hair care company, which is now woven into Wella AG. The firm's roots are in hair care education. Its first Graham Webb Academy opened in London in 1981. The company now has academies in the US -- specifically the District of Columbia, Minnesota, and California. Along with its some dozen UK salons, Graham Webb makes hair care, body care, and cosmetics worldwide and sells them through licensed beauty salons, cosmetologists, and distributors. Wella AG bought Graham Webb in 2001. Procter & Gamble acquired Wella in 2004.
