Royston Blythe himself is one of the UK’s most in-demand hairdressers from clients, celebrities, and the media alike.
After making a name for himself for his stunning work in areas including fashion shows, wedding hair, education and stage work, Royston established the salon under his own name in 1989. Partner Nick Malenko makes up the other half of the renowned Royston Blythe brand, and together they have led the salon to international acclaim.
Royston and Nick are international guest artists for industry leaders L’Oreal, giving them the opportunity to travel the globe as educators, advisors, competition judges, and spokespersons for the brand.
They are in constant demand from the UK and international media, and have worked with GMTV, Wedding TV, Sky One, and Fashion TV, as well as with the leading consumer magazine titles including OK!, Tatler, Hello, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Marie Claire.
Their work has also been seen on the London catwalks alongside top designer Christian Lacroix, at the Monte Carlo Grand Prix, and of course on a host of well-known stars of film and television.
