Kevin: the Session Stylist
Of his profession, no one understands the transformative power of hair better than Kevin Murphy. His work has graced the covers of all the major global print publications, and he has directed hair teams for countless high profile fashion houses. Having trained at Vidal Sassoon in London, Kevin returned to Australia to establish himself as one of the country’s most sought-after stylists.
As a regular contributor to Australian Vogue he carved his niche within the industry as the go-to guy for the iconic ‘Beach Hair’ look, and in 2007, was awarded the Australian Masters Award at the AHFAS for his outstanding contributions to the profile of Australian Hairdressing worldwide.
Today, Kevin remains at the forefront of an industry that he is deeply committed to and passionate about. From leading the trends with new, innovative hair designs, through to groundbreaking products that are kind to the environment as well as being kind to the hair, Kevin Murphy is recognised amongst his peers as a visionary in the creation of modern, hairdressing products and tools.
"The lack of products that performed as I needed them to perform on a shoot forced me to go beyond conventional hair products and look into the advancements being made with skincare. I wanted to create a range that in the hands of a stylist would change the characteristics of the hair and also take hair trends in new directions."
