Why We Are a Kevin Murphy Session Salon at Victoria Hutchinson & Co


When we opened the salon just over a year ago there was only one haircare brand we wanted to stock and use on our clients.  There are so many reasons why Kevin Murphy are the brand for us, but here are just a few.  

Kevin Murphy searched the world for their ingredients, and looked for companies that used micro cultivation, organic growing practices or ecologically sound wild harvesting techniques to ensure the very highest natural quality.  

Born from the same philosophy as skincare, they use vitamins and amino acids to repair the outer surface of the hair, making it thicker and reducing split ends.

The ingredients are lush! Moisturisers from mango butter and murumuru butter smooths the cuticles and softens the hair.  Extracts from Peruvian bark, baobab, bamboo and orange blossom infuse the hair with weightless moisture. Antioxidants from kakadu plum, orchid, lotus flower and desert lime reduce breakage and repair chemical damage naturally.  

 “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 within 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.” Kevin Murphy 

Kevin Murphy himself is session stylist. Trained at Vidal Sassoon in London and a regular contributor to Australian Vogue, he has made his mark in the industry as the go-to-guy for the beach hair look.  In 2007 he was awarded the Australian Masters Award at the AHFAS for his outstanding contributions to the industry.  

It’s easy to find the perfect product for your hair type and the results you want to achieve.  With Kevin Murphy’s Product Matchmaker you can find exactly what you need in minutes and with a few clicks of a button.  

If Kevin Murphy products are perfect for professionals, we are happy to recommend them to our clients to carry on the good work we start in the salon, at home.  When working on shoots and fashion shows Kevin found that models hair became dull and lifeless throughout the day, and couldn’t find products that worked. So he made his own!  By doing this he developed products not just for other stylists but ones that were effective for home use too.

Kevin Murphy cares about the environment. The Heart of Kevin Murphy is the area in which they focus their efforts towards charity and giving back to the community.  It’s entirely non-profit and focuses on both human and environmental issues.

“This change is for the future of our environment and for us to be truly sustainable – to clean up our oceans for the sake of our planet and for future generations.” Kevin Murphy
