SALON Wellington Hair Spa (WHS), 119 West 23rd Street, Suite 501

Shine was thrilled to sit down with Patrick Wellington a 
St. Katherine's, Jamaica native, a Master Hair Professional, and founder of the Wellington Hair Spa.   

Shine caught up Patrick last week in his Hair Spa located in the heart of Chelsea.  His salon is fresh, modern, warm, and has a regal feel, much like Patrick's personality.

Shine. How long have you been in the industry?
Patrick . "I have been doing hair for 25 years, I opened this salon 7 years ago"

Shine . Your Salon has a variety of services, what do you specialize in?
Patrick . "We are a full service salon with experienced stylist providing Weaves, Chemicals (Relaxers, Color), Natural Hair (locs, twists, braids), but my speciality is precision cuts, for all textures of hair, I am not a one dimension hair cutter.  We service a variety of clients with a variety of hair textures and we are equiped to satisfy them all.  There are many Broadway artists that are regulars at WHS."

Shine . What would you like to see change about the industry?
Patrick . "Some salons are diluting the industry with the prices they charge and the poor quality of products they provide. This is diminishing the hair industry overall."

Shine.  What's next for Patrick Wellington?
Patrick . "I am always inspired by fresh and changing hair styles derived from the energy of the Fashion industry, so keeping my clients current is important to me.  This month we are celebrating 25 years since I started my hair career.  We are having a huge celebration, a client and friends of WHS photoshoot, it's invitation only, here at the salon.  It's a quarter century in the business, it's time to celebrate!

With a cutting edge salon, a variety of services, a love for hair and a great team, Patrick and the WHS will continue to Shine Brightly undoubtedly for another 25 Years of healthy hair!
