When Australian hairstylist Kevin Murphy — once the personal stylist for pop songstress Kylie Minoque for 10 years — did session styling, he found that the products he was using were literally falling flat. That's where he decided to develop his own line, using the principles of advanced skincare technology to create weightless products that delivered on strength and longevity.

Vitamin and amino-acid enriched, these not only repair and protect the hair, they're also sulphate-, paraben- and cruelty-free. The cute, modern, colour-coded packaging (which warms the cockles of our hipster hearts) is just a bonus.

Kevin Murphy hair products

Some of our favourites include the Hair Resort — a beach texturiser that smells divine and doesn't leave an over-dry, crunchy effect on the hair and Anti Gravity, an oil-free texturiser. Also available, shampoos and conditioners that treat coloured tresses and an upcoming Repair line that enhances the manageability and shine in hair.

Kevin Murphy is sold only in salons. It's currently available at The Big Blow, The Parlour and Duo Hair Salon
