Kegel recognized the importance of professional technique and appliances
for the hairdressers. The first patent gave Kadus it’s name, a disinfector for barber clippers
and cutting blades which he invented in 1919.

Our founding father, the independent German stylist Ludwig Kegel, opens his first salon in Neustadt.


The brand appears for the first time (‘Kegel’s Automatischer Desinfektor und Spüler’).


Kadus diversifies its range and becomes a true service supplier.


Kadus is now part of the Wella group, a move which paves the way for a rapid international expansion.


Kadus operates now in 35 countries, but the company philosophy remains unchanged ‘to service hairdressers and to help them perfect their skills’.


Kadus Professional introduces the Education program ‘Learn It. Live It. Share It’.
