Reuben Wood added: “I met Neil through his business partner Paul Windle around the time we opened our first  salon in Manchester years and years ago. I was inspired by their salon ethos, and their talented  approach to hairdressing and have been a fan ever since.

“Neil Moodie’s session work is so impressive and artistic, and I’m very excited to welcome him to our creative studio for his master-class to showcase his  Windle & Moodie products.

“He is at the top of our industry, and has travelled the world creating beautiful and interesting hair for countless shows , campaigns and editorial shoots. 

“Now Windle & Moodie have launched this fantastic  product range, Neil can give us a insight into what products he uses and why.

“I love using the  products, my favourite is the Invisible Day and Night Cream, and have many of them  in my session kit which I will be taking to Paris Fashion Week in September.

“The product range is simple and affordable, our clients love it as do we, and there is something for everyone’s hair.”
