Matrix is founded in 1980 by the American husband and wife hairdressing team, Arnie and Sydell Miller. Ardell was a hairdresser for over 20 years before he founded Matrix. Eventually, Ardell created and sold a hair color product. Ardell and his wife, Sydell, then established Matrix so they can provide hairdressers with a comprehensive range of products that would help those hairdressers grow their business and provide the means to take full advantage of their talent and creativity. Now, over three decades later, Matrix is still committed to the development of the salon professional, offering a wide range of hair care, hair color, and texturizing products.
