At the grand old age of 24, French born Charlie Le Mindu has managed to single-handedly link the hair and fashion worlds in a way that no other salon super group has managed to do as yet. After gaining a cult following with his original pop up salons in Berlin's coolest clubs, (way before pop up's were even cool!) he moved to London where his creativity and talent earned him a reputation that is second to none.
Famed for his wig work, he has created pieces for Lady Gaga and his work has appeared in countless magazines. But to me, his most impressive achievement to date is his own catwalk shows, held at London Fashion Week since 2009!

His shows are an insight into the mind of a creative genius. Slightly eccentric and always controversial, it is the way his creations are executed with perfection which showcases his pure skill. Charlie has a talent and the mind of a hair genius and I'm sure we will be seeing a lot more of him in Fashion Weeks to come. I can't wait to see what he creates next!
