Behind the Brand
Established as a humble salon in 1954 in South Australia, Artav Australia has grown into a global hair and beauty manufacturer. As a hairdresser and beauty specialist, Artav founder Arturo Taverna grew his business to become what it is today. Artav is today one of the largest manufacturers of professional hair care and beauty products in Australia.
We strive to keep his reputation alive under the Artav brand. We uphold his commitment to providing the highest quality products and service to clients and customers.
"You don't build a business. You build people and they build it."
Arturo's first salon employed 40 people and became a place where every hairdresser in Adelaide wanted to work and train. He had to open his salon doors at 5 am and close in the late evening due to overwhelming popularity. Over 65 years on, with the help of his family and a team of highly trained staff, Artav Australia was born.
The inspiration behind Artav products comes from Arturo's perceived lack of perfection in the products he used in his salons. The vision is to create products that are unmatched by others at affordable prices. We achieve this with our mix of industry knowledge and a long history of professional experience.
