Through all the years, only the best has been good enough.
Providing good service and working with only the best products. That’s what we do at Tuinenga Kapsalons. Because, there’s a story behind this webshop: a hairdresser ‘s salon that harks back to the 50s, when most of the income was earned with tips and you could still buy toothpaste at a barbershop. Quality has, therefore, been number one for ages in our hairdresser’s salon in Groningen, in the north of the Netherlands. And that’s what you’re also going to find on our webshop.
The barber’s profession is the heart and soul of Edwin Tuinenga (present owner) and his father, Jan Tuinenga, founder of Tuinenga Kapsalons. In the 50s, Jan began as a barber’s apprentice in his father’s shop, and later started his own shop in the Akerkstraat in Groningen. In 1996, Edwin took over his father’s shop and moved to the Hoendiepskade. Working hard, learning fast, and recognising right away what the customer is looking for: that’s what the hairdresser’s salon is about. Plus, a nose for the best products. While the supply on the market used to just be products like Brillantine and Brylcreem, the past decade has seen a strong increase in the number of brands. We’ve worked with all the brands by now, and the Amsterdam brand Keune has repeatedly stood out as the best.
The most complete Keune assortment.
Because we noticed that many of our customers wanted our products sent to their home, we started our webshop in 2012. At first, it was called Huidenhaaronline (Skinandhaironline). In 2016, Lucas Poppinga, sales and marketing specialist, joined us to further expand the webshop and he changed the name to WOW Haircosmetics. The aim was to make it available, also internationally, for everyone to discover the quality that Keune offers. We have achieved this by being the most user-friendly and informative webshop exclusively for Keune products. With no less than 500 products, we are also the most complete Keune webshop there is. Right now, three webshops are online, in five languages (Dutch, German, English, French and Spanish). Super-fast delivery is our norm, and the best customer service, with our general rating of ‘Excellent’, proves that we are right on track!
