Philippe Chicheportiche

Stylist, Barber, Colour

Parisian Philippe spent the first part of his career modeling. Fascinated by the creativeness of hairdressing, he began assisting hairdressers and make-up artist friends at catwalk shows where he got well and truly bitten by the hairdressing bug and has since been a master at his trade for the past decade.

After studying hairdressing at college, Philippe completed his training at Shipton & Leighton where he met Paul Cox and Lisa Atherton.

Philippe thrives on working on real people and his charming character made him land the dream job of resident hairdresser on Gok Wan’s, How to Look Good Naked. This makeover magician also managed to land a spot on Extreme Makeover. “I find transforming someone so rewarding and they are always so grateful which gives me such satisfaction.”

Philippe wants to use his hairdressing knowledge and expertise to educate others. “I’d love to put back into the industry my expertise to help students.

Philippe is one of Atherton Cox’s three Team Leaders offering inspiration and advice whenever required.
