About the founder
An inspirational Hong Kong success story, the name Kim Robinson has become synonymous with style, and is known throughout Asia and far beyond by some of the world’s most beautiful women.
In a career spanning almost four decades, Kim has travelled from the catwalks of the world’s fashion capitals to the pages of Vogue, earning a roster of devoted and discerning clients, and the title of Asia’s hair maestro.
Kim has a flair for colour, particularly working with Asian hair. His ground breaking signature techniques include the ‘dry cut’, using the natural flow of the hair to create styles which last. Believable beauty and an uncompromising attitude towards quality and excellence are central to Kim’s philosophy.
Born in Western Australia, Kim trained at the Australian Institute of Technology, winning the prestigious Apprentice of the Year award. He first travelled to Hong Kong as a young man, before heading to Europe to hone his skills with mentors Vidal Sassoon and the renowned French coiffeur Alexandre de Paris. He then returned to Hong Kong to explore his true love; Asian beauty.
Kim opened the Hong Kong flagship kimrobinson salon in Central’s prestigious Landmark Chater House in 2002, to join its sister salon of kimrobinson Singapore.
Kim’s team is made up of only the most gifted and professional stylists, all hand-picked by him. Likewise, all products and services are amongst the best in the world, and are personally devised and sourced by Kim.
As a result of exhaustive research carried out over several years, Kim again revolutionised the industry with the introduction of the Hair Rejuvenation Formula® (HRF®) – a powerful, non-invasive and holistic method of taking control of thinning hair.
