All Dyed Up: Bleach London
The girls of summer have arrived for the fall with their sunny, Care Bear-colored toolkit in tow. Twenty-three-year-old Alex Brownsell and her partner Samantha Teesdale are the ladies behind the Bleach London salon. Bleach, whose clientele includes Pixie and Peaches Geldoff, Florence Welch, M.I.A., and Milk faves like Brandee Brown and DJ Chelsea Leyland, are known for their whimsical color treatments: we’re talking stenciled hearts, Candyland dip-dyes, and next-level bleaches. Faint of heart? Fear not, the good old-fashioned highlight is not beneath them, and regular cuts and styles are also part of their trade.
With two locations in London (they have their eyes on the Big Apple, but have yet to seal the deal), you may think a trans-Atlantic flight is in order. Save your miles. The girls will be in-house at Milk Studios this week, offering their services at our Aldo pop-up lounge.
