LONDON — Josh Wood, the London-based hair colorist — who’s known for tending to the locks of fashion-plate clients including Laura Bailey, Elle Macpherson and Jemima Khan — is set to bring his Atelier salon concept to London department store Liberty.
Atelier Liberty, the store’s first hair salon, will open its doors Oct. 15. The space, to be designed by Yen Yen Teh of London’s Emulsion Architecture, will be located on the store’s third floor, overlooking nearby Carnaby Street. The space will add to the Atelier Salon in London’s Notting Hill, which Wood opened with his business partner, Lorraine O’Brien, last year.
