ABOUT OUR HERITAGE
Philip Kingsley coined the phrase 'bad hair day' and is the world's most respected authority on hair and scalp health. With over 55 years of Trichological experience, Philip Kingsley's past and present clientele include politcians, royalty and celebrities.
Called the 'Hair Doctor' by the Sunday Times and the 'Hair Guru' by the New York Times, Philip has written many publications on both sides of the Atlantic. Philip has recognized the need to bridge the gap between science and hairdressing as well as providing solutions for the most extreme hair and scalp problems, and those who just want the best from their hair.
The first Trichological Clinic was opened in Mayfair, London in 1960. In response to demand for the service in America, the New York Trichological Centre opened in New York in 1977. Many of the staff who started working with him as juniors are still with him today.
In 1997, Philip was asked to create a retail range for salon distribution, the result of which is one of the first in-salon, Trichologically driven hair and scalp ranges. It is based on working with the hair texture rather than the prevailing standard of normal, oily and dry. His concept is now widely accepted as the standard, by which many in our industry approach hair care formulations. Philip Kingsley products can now also be found in premium retailers such as Harrods, Liberty, Fenwicks, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer.
