Regis is based in Saint Louis Park, Minnesota and was founded in 1922 by Paul and Florence Kunin as Kunin Beauty Salon, and renamed Regis in 1958 by their son Myron who acquired the chain.
Regis acquired a major competitor The Barbers, Hairstyling for Men & Women, Inc., which had previously brought the companies: The Cost Cutters, Family Hair Care, City Looks Salons International and We Care Hair. Other major acquisitions included Sassoon and HCUK. Regis sells Designline hair care products (2004) as well.
