Having gone from 1 salon to 13 salons as well as a magnificent industry centerpiece in New York City, Philip Pelusi has created a haircare philosophy, a product line, P2 by Philip Pelusi, and Systems for Success.

He created the S.P.A.C.E Design Center, a state of the art education facility in a converted orthodox church where, in addition to providing skill certification for his 350+ designers, Philip holds events and seminars for salon owners from all cross North America. Philip has met the demands of his clients with his unique trademarked the Volumetric® haircutting technique. Philip is often quoted as saying, "I didn’t invent the haircut, I just made it better". InStyle named Philip one of the top 10 stylist in the country. Volumetrics® created another challenge for Philip: to create products that could support his design. At the same time independent salons were asking Philip for products, as they were looking for a line that was free of diversion and deception. As a result, Philip launched the Philip Pelusi® P2 line of professional hair care and skin care. Because of Philip’s acumen in the area of hair care, he is a much in demand expert regularly appearing in trade and consumer publications as well as television and radio.
