He has also worked in the United Kingdom where he enjoyed working with the cool, cutting edge style of essensuals London UK and backstage with them at London Fashion Week.

His career took him to 18 countries and countless cities in-between, but he fell in love with the city of Seattle, the Pacific Northwest and its people and beauty. He is very excited in bridging the gap between the essensuals London UK style and the Pacific Northwest cool, and he knows that out of all the cities he has been to Seattle with it’s grit and raw style this is where it’s at.

Robert Townsend

Robert Townsend started doing hair in San Diego over 20 years ago, and has been Newport Beach and Beverly Hills based for the last 19 years.

He became a former Art director with Toni & Guy USA where his easy, approachable manner and excellent coloring skills made him a natural for teaching. He was in charge of the assistant program, a popular stage artist and an inspiring all-round educator which made him a very sought after colorist.

Having left the fold after the de-merger, Robert has continued working in prestigious Newport Beach and Beverly Hills salons, specializing in color. The thing Robert loves most about being a hairstylist is that every day is different, every client is an individual, and he loves and knows how to bring out the best in all of them.

After traveling with his brother up to the Pacific Northwest many times and falling in love with its raw beauty and culture, he also decided that Seattle was the place he wanted to plant his roots and raise his family.

Having worked for essensuals London UK* brand he has always wanted to help bring it back to the US and now fuse it together with the Seattle cool culture, with Robert’s keen eye he saw that the place was in Seattle’s Capitol Hill and wanted to be part of bringing them both together.

We are really excited to have Robert’s wide-ranging skills as the Essensuals London Director with his twin brother Jason Townsend.
