Philip Kingsley

Born in 1930 in London’s East End, Philip Kingsley worked his way up to become the world’s leading expert on hair and scalp care. His passion for hair started at his uncle’s hairdressing salon, where he began assisting when he was just 16. Even at this early age, he recognised the profound psychological significance that hair has for both men and women. He opened his flagship Clinic on Green Street, Mayfair in 1968, and then his Fifth Avenue clinic New York in 1977. Starting with a mere five basic products, Philip’s clinic range grew to over 50 bespoke formulations.
