Co-founder and Artistic Director Mitchell Gordon is a highly-skilled hairdresser with over 25 years experience of cutting, colouring and styling. Initially trained by the enigmatic John Lester, Mitchell's career took off when in 1991 he joined forces with his friend and colleague Lisa Cooper to form Toppers Hair Design.
Mitchell's unique character and pioneering attitude has helped grow Toppers Hair Design from a start-up business into Ely's most successful salon. He has a natural empathy with staff and clients alike and knows exactly how to bring out the best in someone.
Exacting in his standards, Mitchell will never compromise on quality or service. “I may be old fashioned but I believe in attention to detail. Whether it's in the cut, the style or the salon itself, little things make a big difference. I feel strongly that every woman deserves to look and feel fabulous in any situation. What I enjoy most about my job is seeing clients come out of their shells. Their posture changes, a light comes into their eyes and there's suddenly a spring in their step. It's amazing what the right hairstyle can do for a woman's confidence and I never cease to marvel at the transformation.”
