Bleach London to land stateside
It’s East London meets West Coast—Bleach London is opening a salon in L.A. and launching its collection of at-home dyes via an all-new web platform for U.S. shoppers.

The female-founded company, which counts Georgia May Jagger as an early investor, is currently hiring for positions at its new location. Hmmm…do we want to go peach or pink for the season?
