Founders, ColorProof™ EVOLVED COLOR CARE

            It is a rare occurrence for a husband and wife team to develop multiple companies while utilizing their success to catapult philanthropic activity that has touched the lives of so many. Over the course of Jim and Cheryl Markham’s accomplished careers they have founded four successful hair care companies, and more than 300 formulas, each one more successful than the one before – Sebring®, Markham®, ABBA® Pure and Natural, and his most recent endeavor, PureOlogy Serious Colour Care®, the first luxury line of products exclusively for color-treated hair.  With each new venture the Markham name has become synonymous with authentic, high quality, high-performance products that are legendary and serve as an Industry standard. They are continuing their track record with the introduction of ColorProof EVOLVED COLOR CARE, their finest entry yet.  ColorProof was born from Jim’s ceaseless passion for creating exceptional products that clearly demonstrate points of superiority and of his innate desire to give back to the professional salon industry.

            Jim Markham began his career in the beauty industry as a savvy celebrity stylist whose client list included Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, Johnny Carson, Frank Sinatra, and Robert Redford, to name a few.  As a stylist, Jim found that he had a natural gift for product development and for detecting needs in the market.  His entrepreneurial spirit drove him to create companies that deliver extraordinary innovative products to meet those needs.  With each venture Cheryl has been an integral business partner and collaborator in helping to bring Jim’s vision to life.  As testament to their tremendous success, Jim has been recognized time and time again for his excellence in business, winning prestigious awards such as Entrepreneur of the Year for Ernst & Young for consumer products, and was inducted into their Hall of Fame, as well as into the Professional Beauty Association’s (PBA) North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) Hall of Leaders where he was acknowledged for his outstanding and lifelong achievements within the Industry. Jim was also recognized as Entrepreneur of the Year by Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD) in 2002 and the Orange County Business Journal in 2007.
