Award-winning Philip Kingsley Hair Care – Philip Kingsley Trichology is about complete wellness for your hair and scalp, from the inside out. They believe in a holistic, hands-on approach to hair care that not just focuses on the products you use but is on how you care for yourself too. Each product is designed not only to improve your hair’s appearance – but to improve its long-term health and strength.
Philip Kingsley’s passion for hair started at age 16 when he began assisting at his uncle’s hairdressing salon in London’s East End. Unable to afford university, he started saving money to study at the Institute of Trichologists, studying the science of the hair and scalp. Even at this early age, Philip recognised the profound psychological significance of hair for both men and women. He understood like no one else how important your hair is to your self-esteem and dedicated his career to helping people achieve the very best hair they could.
His profound care and insight led him to accomplish many firsts in his field. He was the first hair professional to encourage hair health through nutrition and wellbeing. He coined the phrase ‘bad hair day’, and created the world’s first pre-shampoo conditioner, Elasticizer, personally for Audrey Hepburn. His expertise bridged the gap between science and beauty and earned him many awards and accolades. He was referred to as the Hair Guru by the New York Times, the Hair Wizard by Vogue, and the Hair Doctor by the Sunday Times.
Philip’s passion and warmth inspired his daughter Anabel Kingsley to follow in his footsteps. As a brand President and a respected Trichologist in her own right, Anabel is dedicated to continuing Philip’s legacy into the next generation of hair care.

As a family-owned business Philip Kingsley cares deeply about the future of our planet. That is why their beautiful new packaging is made from renewable resources, sourced from sugarcane, with a carbon-negative footprint.
Traditionally produced plastic is not a planet-friendly option, but sugarcane bioplastic made from sugarcane-derived ethanol, as well as Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic crafted from discarded plastic items such as drinks bottles, are far better options for our environment.
