Chris Webb
Publisher, International Hair Authority

Chris Webb has been a leading figure in the hair replacement and restoration industry for 20 years. His early marketing and advertising experience was with Unilever and Colgate-Palmolive, working in London, Paris and New York. It was while he was working on Madison Avenue that Chris met Sy Sperling and created the marketing materials that helped build Hair Club for Men. He later launched The National Hair Journal to share information and insights with other business owners and help them enjoy the same business success.

The Hair Journal quickly became a leading source of education and marketing support and became known as the ‘International Hair Authority.’  For several years, Chris also hosted ‘The National Hair Hour,’ a live radio show broadcast out of Los Angeles and New York.

Publishing the Hair Authority is just the tip of the iceberg. Behind-the-scenes, Chris continues to play a key role as consultant, negotiator… and occasional policeman. Chris has a degree in Business Administration and a post-graduate degree in International Politics and French Literature from the Sorbonne in Paris. He is fluent in English and French and embarrasses his friends in German. He now lives in Southern California, where the proximity of several wineries helps make his week-ends pass pleasantly.
