In 1970's, Philip de Vera arrived in London. His first salon was opened in 2003. It became bigger and famous that he decided to launch a more spacious one, which is now the present Philip de Vera salon in Earls Court. Philippine Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Mr. and Mrs. Espiritu attended and did the ribbon-cutting for the event.
Up until now, the salon continues to cater to diverse nationalities as clientele.
