Kristo Willson

Well, let’s just say Kristo never fit the mold, not even the mold of those who don’t fit the mold. Established in 1978, he was groomed for some kind of life by the Los Angeles culture and community. There’s an old saying in L.A., “We come out chased by Hounds.” He seems as though he hit the ground running. Kristo will be the first person to tell you that the day he got his first apprenticeship, on his 26th birthday, was the day his life changed. After woking his way up and through TV, film, editorial, and the likes of LA Fashion Week. He hand built his first salon, Melrose & McQueen, in 2011. Not just as a salon though, but as a cultural movement revolving around the religion of hair. M&M has come to represent pretention-free, the speakeasy of the ageless hipster, safe haven for hairdressers and artists alike, a clubhouse for the Little Rascals.

After hand building a new and improved Melrose & McQueen, he has also ventured to save the Lost Boyz of the barbershop culture he grew up in with PorkChops Social Club. As he puts it, “Some people build barbershops that look like the something out of the 50’s. Well, I don’t know the 50’s, but I do know 1982 in East LA. So that’s whats up.” Now, he’s created The WNDRLND, a grassroots movement designed to foster creativity in the hearts and hands of hairdressers around the world, while giving back to their community. “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”, John Holmes. The WNDRLND has become a movement of change through empowerment.

Whether it's the cover of Vogue, New York Fashion week, or Back Stage on Broadway you will find our shears going to work, making the world we live in a more beautiful place.
