Known for constantly pushing the envelope with his innovative styling and persistent re-invention of how beauty should be perceived, Vogue regular Neil Moodie has climbed to the top of the hairstyling arena to become one of the industry’s most applauded and well loved names. Therefore, when Neil and his equally renowned business partner Mr Paul Windle asked us to work with them on a styling seminar in Glasgow recently, how could we say no?
Both Paul and Neil, having spent much of their careers behind the scenes on editorial shoots for Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and the like, working with big name stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Sienna Miller, Drew Barrymore, Suki Waterhouse, Cara Delevingne…and wowed us all in the early noughties with the incredible Bumble & Bumble range have put their creative skills and industry know-how into their new outstanding eponymous hair care and styling range, Windle & Moodie.
The seminar was held at the SWG3 photographic studio in Glasgow where forty of Scotland’s finest stylists gathered to be educated, inspired and generally bowled over by the charisma, talent and experience of the duo and impressed by the standard and versatility of the new range.
The Windle & Moodie products are an extension of Paul and Neil’s award-winning Covent Garden salon, inspired by their editorial and fashion heritage and if they pass the rigorous test of being used backstage or in the salon they make the grade. The packaging is as sexy and tasteful as you would hope, perhaps even slightly masculine and the fragrances are subtle, natural and uplifting. Our favourite product (and Neil’s kit bag essential) is the Matte Texture Spray (£20 250ml), an invisible spray that creates instant texture, volume and body – what’s not to love?Buy them here
