Muse, by its very definition, is the personification of an artistic force and who could better embody this concept than co-director of Muse Hair Philip Barwick? International Educator, Artistic Director and Business Owner are just a few of the hats that Philip wears, but most recently it’s his artistic force in the world of backstage hairdressing which has put him on the radar of the best in the business.

Philip has been heralded as one of just six finalists for Session Stylist of the Year at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards, this country’s premier awards programme celebrating the best of the best in hair, fashion and beauty, where his exquisite work for Institute Magazine, Laud magazine and an accessories campaign for Bulgari wowed the London-based judges. Including legends of the session world such as British Hairdresser of the Year Angelo Seminara, seminal stylist Trevor Sorbie and global superstars of the backstage Eugene Souleiman and Sam McKnight, to be noted by these industry leaders is already a huge accomplishment.

Philip says “I am so stoked to make the finals of Session Stylist of the Year. Having my work appreciated by the London judges is a dream come true and seeing my name next to the other five Australian finalists is nothing short of an oustanding honour.”

Over the past 20 years Muse has evolved into a multi-award winning powerhouse salon business that’s regarded as one of Australia’s most creative and progressive hair institutions and as the figurehead for the brand, Philip is the very soul of that creativity and progression.
