Charles Worthington Salons started life in 1987 when Charles opened his first salon in Charlotte Place, London with his sister Jane on reception and one stylist. This year we celebrate 30 years of success with three stunning salons in the heart of London. Charles Worthington Salons has become synonymous with creative and innovative hair, earning itself an unrivalled reputation in British hairdressing, styling A-listers and collaborating with the best names in fashion and beauty.
“There are three fabulous Charles Worthington salons in London: the original airy Percy Street salon in Fitzrovia, the glam House of Charles Worthington in Covent Garden and the slick Broadgate Club in the City. Each has its own character, but all have the same high calibre of stylists and colourists.”
Every year Charles, the Creative Director, and Katie Allan the Creative Manager, put their heads together to come up with a new collection of trend-setting hair looks, each one more inspired than the last. This year it’s all about colour.
Take a sneak peek at what goes on behind the scenes at Charles Worthington Salons. From red carpet to fashion, TV appearances to celebrity hair, we want to give you an insight into the world of luxe hair.
With Charles at the helm, Charles Worthington Salons boasts the most talented, skilled and highly trained team of stylists. At the core of the company is our management team. Katie Allan, our Creative Manager, Mathew Soobroy, our Ambassador, Vicky James, our General Manager, and Colette Tamke, our Deputy General Manager.
