Our Salon

Meet our team

The Wonderful Wig Company blossomed from our Sunderland salon, Kitui, in 2017. We’re not so new around here though. Our experienced, close-knit team works hard to ensure that every aspect of The Wonderful Wig Company runs smoothly. We understand that, in the order to achieve the most heartfelt customer experience, you need to know who’s who. Well, here you can see the people behind our multi-award-winning project and put faces to names.

Nicola Wood

Creative Director & Salon Owner

From starting her Saturday job in a salon at the tender age of 13, Nicola’s passion has always been hair, it’s all she’s ever wanted to do. Since then she’s trained with prestigious North East salons and ran a full diary by the age of 19 before opening our very own salon, at just 21. Nineteen years on and Nicola’s commitment to premium brands, customer service and technical excellence has only excelled.

Michelle Watson

Salon Manager & Colour Specialist

Michelle has been with Kitui since the start. She ensures the smooth operation of the whole salon on the daily both behind the scenes and front of house. Michelle epitomises perfectionism in every way. With superb attention to detail, her highlights are millimetre perfect, with her original colour formulas and signature blends causing a real stir! As a specialist, Michelle has meticulously produced some amazing colour corrections and transformations. Having attended training at the L’Oreal Academy in London she’s dedicated herself to continually improve. With an advanced qualification in cutting too, you’re assured of technical excellence when booking with Michelle.


Assistant & Rising Star

Annabelle has been working in the salon ever since she was 14 and her ambition to progress within the hair industry is second to none. We’re hoping that her natural and artistic flair can take her far in the hair game. She has a brilliant work ethic, is ridiculously friendly and interesting not to mention creative. Annabelle is always looking for models for her weekly in-house training. Please get in touch to register with her.

Karen Young

With over 25 years experience and original training with Toni & Guy, it’s fair to say Karen knows a thing or two about hair. She has continued to perfect her craft throughout her adult career and her technical excellence really is a cut above the rest. Having managed and owned multiple prestigious salons for twelve successful and busy years she decided to join our team. Expect precise, bespoke haircuts and a caring nature from the moment you sit in her chair.
