only trained, but also nurtured,
ensuring they have the confidence and
ability to deliver our unique salon
experience for each and every client.
Even before Indy Hair was established in 1996 ‘word of mouth’ was my philosophy of becoming a successful stylist. I didn’t agree with luring clients with gimmicks. I wanted my work to be a true assessment of my artistic ability. Clients were and are my best advertisement. Recommendations and loyalty are the greatest measure of success and also keep egos in check. #wordofmouth is the key.
From the early days of a small salon on Churchgate the foundation of Indy was started. Following our unique path we grew rapidly and within a year moved into a beautiful space on Loseby Lane. With a bigger team and no name on the door, we had to ensure that our work spoke for itself and that the Indy reputation grew. It did and we moved to our current location. We still decline from having our name put on the façade, but a firm foundation and clarity of purpose has maintained a consistency in our reputation and a loyal and growing clientele.
