Woman in Progress: Ondine Cowley at Nicky Clarke

Before I met Ondine, I’d never really understood the whole idea of being loyal to a particular hairdresser.  They’re all much the same I thought to myself. They aren’t.

In January this year, The Guardian included Clementine in their article ‘The Seven Apps every woman should own’. With a busy work and home life we are so grateful to Kim for kindly answering our questions and sharing her story with us.
