KARTEE MUNUSAMY - DIRECTOR

Tee’s journey into hairdressing was sparked by a love of fashion. Like most teenagers, Tee enjoyed looking good, but there were not many opportunities to work in the fashion industry where he grew up in a small rural village in Malaysia . Tee began his career as a Barber at only 16- years old. Tee was fortunate enough to be taught and inspired by, Vidal Sassoon Creative Director, Melvin Walden. After gaining a wealth of experience in the salon environment. Tee continued to study fashion design including at the prestigious St Martins School of Art and Design and channeled what he learnt about fashion into hair styling. His goal was to become a Session Stylist for photoshoots and prestigious Fashion Week. Tee now regularly travels to London, Milan and Paris working with some of the world’s most exclusive fashion brands.

These include Burberry, Hermes, Ferragamo, Berluti and Fendi to name a few. In addition, Tee is a regular Stylist for the annual BAFTA Award ceremony.
“I saw how hair and fashion were intertwined and how hair plays in a key role in making you look and feel good.”

Working in salons in Covent Garden and Wimbledon,London but felt drawn to the warmth and sense of community in Colliers Wood and decided to make it his mission to bring his knowledge and wealth of experience to SW19 so the community could experience West End style on their doorsteps.
