Award-winning Royal and celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward is one of the industry’s leading lights, and the media’s ‘most wanted’ hairdresser. Pioneer of the ‘Super Salon’ concept, his uber-cool award-winning Sloane Square salon plays host to a team of over 90 expert staff, looking after the hair and beauty needs of over 1,200 clients per week including a glittering list of celebrities.
With his royal connection and his resident television hairdresser roles, Richard’s huge consumer profile makes him one of the country’s ultimate high profile hairdressers, and he is globally recognised as the leading British style and hair trends commentator. Richard remains hairdresser to HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and HRH The Countess of Wessex, as well as looking after a glittering celebrity clientele in his exclusive Chelsea salon.
Having been awarded the accolade of Fellow with Distinction from the prestigious Fellowship for British Hairdressing, and endorsing his position as a style commentator in both trade and consumer press, Richard regularly appears as an industry Spokesman on BBC News, Radio London and Radio 5 Live. His expert hair makeovers and soundbites appear regularly in the Daily Mail and a host of glossy magazines, making him the ultimate spokesman on innovations and trends for the hairdressing industry.
In recent years, Richard has turned his hand to manufacturing with the development of his detangling Tangle Angel brush range, now distributed in 35 countries. Richard also runs a hugely successful range of wet products, retailing his hugely successful Chelsea Collection range exclusively in Waitrose stores throughout the UK (with one product sold every 30 seconds in the UK). Renowned for his world famous Chelsea Blow Dry, Richard’s philosophy is about making sure their hair makes women look and feel fantastic. His ethos is that modern hair should be natural, free-flowing, touchable and wearable, and he believes that the right products should complement the cut to deliver healthy, shiny glamorous hair, making the couture hair look accessible to everyone and guaranteeing a good hair day, every day.
