Keith Rosenberg is what is known as Hairdressing Royalty, and it’s not just from his vast experience and the impressive client list that he has had the privilege to work with in the past; there’s no doubt that he came from ‘good stock’. His mother, who sadly passed away when Keith was just three years old, was at Adolph Cohen in Whitechapel with Vidal Sassoon.
Keith’s partnership with David McCann goes back a long way, to when Keith was just 17, working together first at Sassoon’s and then at Crimpers, one of the first unisex salons to rival Vidal Sassoon. Despite being held in high esteem Keith soon got itchy feet and decided to leave David at Sassoon’s in South Molton Street while he pursued a career further afield. It has taken almost 30 years for the pair to finally reunite.
It is the McCann chair which Keith drives his energy in to these days. Having known it was always something he wanted to do, Keith reached out to his oldest friend and colleague David McCann and the pair joined forces to put dreams to reality and produce the revolutionary McCann chair, as Keith explains:
“It’s not just the way the styling chair is, it’s about the way the hair is produced. Usually a hairdresser’s chair is all about the aesthetics and can just go up and down, but this is a hairdresser’s styling chair that has been created by the top hairdressers in the world, FOR hairdressers”.
