I established Windle salon in 1988.
We have remained at the top of London hairdressing for 30 years constantly evolving and reinventing. Our mantra is that life should be slower and deeper rather than faster and cheaper. We have always tirelessly worked to leave no stone unturned. A constant search for the illusive perfection.
I do not believe that large corporations are good for our industry, I want to champion the small business and work with like minded people.
