A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Philip Foresto didn’t grow up aspiring to work in the hair industry. In fact, he remembers his mother cutting his hair from the kitchen of their home. In 2009, he left his hometown for New Orleans, LA, where he would meet his now father-in-law, a hairstylist of over thirty years. He allowed Foresto to work in his salon sweeping floors and answering phones, and after this introduction to the world of professional hair, Foresto was hooked. From there, Foresto says he made it his life’s mission to become the best hairstylist he could be. Follow Philip on Instagram for hair inspiration and Foresto’s work as a Redken Ambassador.
