About us

In 1985, Bea and Ad van Gorkom put their heads full of ideas and hair together and founded “De Kapper” (The Hairdresser).  Many great things happened since.

In 2018 daughter Babs van Gorkom became companion of “De Kapper”, which made it even more of a real Amsterdam family business. 

Despite all of the developments in our business, one thing never changed, which is the pure passion we all have for our job. Making people more beautiful than they already are through great hair styles, is our true passion.

A visit to “De Kapper” has to be surprising, relaxing, and inspiring. In a vibing ambiance, our staff works with a lot of enthusiasm, creativity and quality together with you to give you the best results.

Our skills are trained, developed and innovated non-stop, which makes us fully up to date in our profession and up to speed on the latest trends.

We regularly assist, support and/or advise on make-overs and photoshoots for various national magazines. We also work backstage at the Amsterdam Fashion Week, which testifies that our expertise and craftsmanship are recognized and appreciated.

“De Kapper” is part of the educational cycle and is connected to “Stichting Samenwerking Beroepsonderwijs Bedrijfsleven (SBB), a foundation dedicated to training & developing hair style professionals.
