Goldwell is an internationally based hair-care company that was established in 1948. The founder began with the idea of a lotion that could enable long-lasting hairstyles. According to the company's website, the hair-care company KMS merged with Goldwell in 2005, and both companies merged under one company name: KPSS Inc. In 2006, KMS relaunched as KMS California.

Goldwell manufactures many different products that contain specific ingredients to maximize the product's effectiveness.

In addition, Goldwell is a leader in hair color processing and has established a formal five step color cycle for stylists to utilize to improve customer satisfaction. The process involves a color consultation, pre-color preparation, color service, post-color service and color maintenance routine.
