People always ask us to explain where the name “Bumble and bumble” came from. (Understandable). Five decades ago, our founder, Michael Gordon, was a young hairdresser’s apprentice at London’s Leonard of Mayfair Salon. It was the height of the Swinging Sixties – an era that brought us style icons like Twiggy, Marianne Faithfull, and Jean Shrimpton. But at the salon, Michael was styling an older clientele, who was stuck in the formal, decidedly not groovy aesthetic of the previous generation.
