LONDON — Michael Gordon is going where few hair and beauty entrepreneurs have dared to tread — into the behind-the-scenes world of private equity. Gordon, the founder of Bumble and bumble, who most recently bankrolled a film about his hero, Vidal Sassoon, has already begun work on his latest company, If You Knew.
His aim is to take stakes in emerging brands and offer the management advice on how to build them.
