After almost 10 years with us at Windle London, Akio one of our colourists is leaving to go travelling with his wife and then settle in Italy…
And what better way to finish his last day yesterday than with his favourite VIP client, British model sensation and fast becoming an accomplished actress, Cara Delevingne.
Cara at the Burberry show in 2012 after having Akio colour her hair.
Akio first coloured Cara’s hair about 3 years ago when he coloured Cara’s hair at the Burberry show.
Cara loved the colour Akio did. His precision and delicate touch meant that even though her hair was lighter, it was virtually impossible to detect that her hair had been coloured.
Cara’s hair colour became the talk of the town as well as her as a person, and so she continued to come to Akio whenever she needed a touch up, occasionally with her old school friend too, Georgia May Jagger.
And so there colour affair continued.
Akio announced a few weeks ago that he and his wife were going travelling, and after they would be settling in Italy where his wife is from. And so we’ve said our goodbyes, bought the leaving presents, had the leaving/Xmas dinner, and all that was left for Akio to do was to finish off his career at Windle London with a bang – and what better way to do it than what he could only describe as a beautiful surprise of colouring Cara’s hair one last time.
We’ve taken some pictures as a momento for us and Akio of Cara with her new haircut and colour…
Akio will be missed hugely by us all at Windle London, but we wish him the best in his future endeavours and hopefully one day he may come back to London and work for us again…
