Being the first salon to launch the Windle & Moodie range in Scotland and an exclusive stockist in Dumfries is an envied coup for browns salon. Created by industry favourites Paul Windle and Neil Moodie, the cult haircare brand launched to major media acclaim in 2014. Salon founder Nelson Brown is so taken by the products, he’s even become an inspirational educator for the brand.
Securing the range couldn’t have come at a better time for the salon who just opened their second premises in Whitesands, Dumfries. The slick salon space has an industrial air with art gallery overtones, making it modern and cool yet decidedly welcoming. Distinctive shades of yellow and aqua sea blues and greys work harmoniously with stripped brick walls, pale wood styling units and slate flooring.
“Our business is a family affair with my mother, sister, Jacquie andme,” says Nelson. “We’re thrilled with our new space which is a major refurbishment of my sister’s original beauty premises – it’s a delight to have a new destination for our loyal clients and team. We have tripled the space compared to our previous salon in Dumfries and now have a dedicated hair treatment spa and offer a portfolio of second to none beauty services.
“The design brief was to create a luxurious New York loft apartment vibe, making the most of many original features going back two centuries and I think we’ve done it! We’ve invested heavily in comfort and coolness, it’s a bespoke build with clients’ wellbeing and relax
ation in mind.That’s why Windle & Moodie is such a great product fit – the products look cool, perform brilliantly, create great hair and are eco-friendly too.”
