Hair care legend and internationally renowned trichologist Philip Kingsley died on September 3, 2016.

philip-kingsleyPhilip was the world’s leading authority on hair and scalp health. Dubbed the “Hair Guru” by the New York Times, the “Hair Wizard” by Vogue and the “Hair Doctor” by the Sunday Times, he was the man who coined the phrase “bad hair day.”

Philip was the first to link hair health with nutrition and well-being. He believed that the traditional classifications of hair as normal, oily and dry were inaccurate, and introduced the concept of hair textures instead: Fine, Medium, Coarse, African-Caribbean.
