We’re proud to announce that we’re carrying and promoting the exceedingly popular Kevin Murphy line of hair care products at our salon. We invite you to keep reading to learn what all the rage is about this designer’s amazing lineup of products!
Kevin Murphy’s Vision
It’s natural to want to understand the biggest selling points of a line of products, especially in a market as competitive and cutting-edge as hair care and beauty. Below we’ll discuss the man himself, his goals, and the vision he’s set out for his line of diverse skin-and-hair products.
Kevin Murphy is an Australian-born hair expert and session stylist who has been in the beauty industry for over three decades. His brand’s core tenets are about keeping the hair healthy, strong, and moisturized while never compromising on its necessary hold and flair. In 2003, he launched his very own line of paraben, sulfate, and cruelty-free haircare dubbed KEVIN.MURPHY. He’s quoted explaining the drive behind his passion; “I wanted to develop a range of products that was different from anything on the market; they needed to deliver performance, strength, and longevity.” Kevin Murphy’s brand also boasts a vast range of styling products, from shine sprays to volumizing powders. Regardless of what you’re looking for, Kevin Murphy has endeavored to make something for everyone.
Striving For Sustainability
Kevin Murphy actively participates in green initiatives with the goal of helping to clean our oceans. A part of that goal is the redesign of his packaging, with his proprietary packaging material being called ‘Ocean Waste Plastic’. In making the switch to a more recyclable, less resource-intensive packaging, they project that they will eliminate over 360 tons of plastic waste each year.
He also makes a concerted effort to conserve water, being involved with ECOHEADS; an organization that provides salons innovative showerheads which save nearly 100 gallons of water in a single basin every year, and also helps to save salons money on water and energy bills.
In addition to their first run of OWP packaging, ‘TOUCHABLE’, a finishing spray wax, was also designed with his sustainability philosophy in mind. Since it comes in a can and is aerosolized, the company will keep track of each unit sold and, in turn, make a monetary donation toward offsetting carbon emissions globally.
Kevin Murphy is going beyond just their packaging; they put sustainability at the forefront of their business model and frequently give back. Other notable efforts include:
- Philanthropy: the heart and soul of their brand; they are dedicated to aiding charitable causes which focus on both human and environmental issues.
- Green Circle Salons: Kevin Murphy contributes to an array of salons that donate common by-products such as hair clippings, aluminum foils, colour tubes and applicators, for innovative and environmentally-friendly recycling. - Peta: (People For Ethical Treatment of Animals) is the largest animal rights organisation on the planet and has named Kevin Murphy as one of their highly esteemed ‘Cruelty Free’ companies.
Beyond The Ordinary: Unique Formulas For Unique Hair
Many salon-goers and beauty enthusiasts alike run into a wall at some point in their exploration and deep dives into the vast world of hair care, and that wall? Product sensitivities; where frail or thin hair succumbs to breakages and bleaching when subjected to harsher, generic, run-of-the-mill products designed for broad consumer marketability. This is where another element of Kevin Murphy’s vision comes into play: designing products with special considerations in mind and eschewing the product meta of heavy waxes and harsh chemicals.
People with naturally fine or thin hair find that many products often simply weigh it down, and ultimately learn to approach mousses, sprays, and shampoos with a healthy wariness. Some people even elect to avoid styling products all together! But when Kevin Murphy broke onto the scene, the innovative products he brought with him to the beauty scene cater to all hair types – they’re specially-formulated to target the issues people frequently face, like fine, frail, coarse, or unwieldy hair… the list is endless!
