Richard Thompson rejoins forces with Alfaparf Milano as part of an exclusive partnership agreement. Thompson, who helped create Alfaparf’s street-chic S4U product range, is now working again for Alfaparf exclusively.
Famous worldwide as a creative director and the front man of Mahogany Hairdressing, Thompson decided to leave his prestigious London-based style team to begin a new phase in his life, which has brought him to Italy. This choice was welcomed by the Alfaparf Group as an opportunity for a renewed partnership.
Born in Manchester, England, Thompson began his career as an apprentice at the exclusive James and Peter salon. At the age of 21, he moved to London to work for Vidal Sassoon. He then went on to work with other companies in the sector as Creative Director until he opened his first salon, Mahogany, in Oxford at age 28. This is where Thompson's philosophy was shaped, which can be summarized in just one word: “listening”. As a Stylist, Thompson firmly believes that it is essential to work in harmony with clients, striving to find the solutions best suited to each of them. This is why he developed cutting and coloring techniques which complement the client’s style and personality. This philosophy contributed to the success of the style team led by Thompson recognized internationally with some of the industry’s leading awards.
Now, Thompson is sharing his vast experience with Alfaparf Milano and their partner salons worldwide with the aim of further developing products and education that support the vision of Alfaparf: “Provide Professionals the best solutions to enhance everyone's beauty.”
