A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of welcoming Creative Head Magazine, an industry-leading publication, into our house of experts to meet some of the incredibly talented men and women behind Josh Wood Salon. Read on to hear how team work makes the dream work, and what to book in with the experts for...
When Josh Wood Atelier first opened it was just me and my direct team. I had six chairs. We grew because people wanted an environment where they could work to add different streams to their careers, not just do a '9 to 5' behind a chair.
Fashion Week is crazy-busy, and you have to stay strong and balanced. It's hard work - the grind, the hustle. You need to be present, you need stamina.
