Biography of Daniel Galvin

Worlds leading colourist



Daniel Galvin, the world's leading Hair Colourist is often referred to as the "King of Colour". Since he established his own business in the 1970's, he has been responsible for every major innovation in hair colouring techniques and their application.

His father and several of his relatives were hairdressers, so it seemed inevitable that Daniel would carry on in the family tradition. Daniel, however, was fascinated by the use of colour in hair and how it could change the way people looked.

Daniel Galvin trained in the 1960's with several of London's new generation of innovative hairdressers, whose combined talents were responsible for bringing British hairdressing to world attention.Specialisation in colouring was a completely new area in hairdressing, with most hairdressers preferring to cut and style. Daniel learnt fast and word about his skill and "artists eye" in applying colour, soon meant that he was sought after by many top salons. Daniel decide to join Leonard, which then had a large tinting department, where he developed and refined his colouring ideas. After four years he became a director and later partner in the company. Always at the forefront of innovation in hair colouring, it was during this period that Daniel introduced new highlighting techniques, henna, vegetable dyes and the fun "Crazy Colour", which revolutionised the way in which hair was coloured.

In the late seventies Daniel set up his first specialist colour salon, the first of its kind in Europe. Daniel's reputation and endorsement by his clients, top models and the media led him to open an even larger salon at the present location in George Street, in 1987. The importance of colour is emphasised in the Salon where the entire ground floor is dedicated to colouring, this in turn is complemented by an excellent Styling Department with its own talented team on the lower ground floor.
