SALON DIRECTOR / STYLE DIRECTOR & COLOURIST
Arch comes from a hairdressing family. His mum is a hairdresser back in his home town of Tallinn in Estonia and he started helping his mum from the early age of 13. He just followed the natural path and qualified as a hairdresser.
Upon coming to London almost 10 years ago, Arch joined the team in the famous Michael John salon in Mayfair and worked there under the wing of few big hairdressing names. That is where he learned his trade. Cutting, colouring and styling.
Arch is a no-nonsense hairstylist. If you are after an honest opinion regarding your haircut, colour or aftercare, Arch is your man. Be assured that you will leave the salon with a great cut and colour. And your blow-dry will be smooth and bouncy for a while.
In his own words:
"I really enjoy creating a range of colours from classic honey blondes to soft dip-dye looks.
Modern styles such as beach waves and lovely long blow dries that can worn on every occasion.
I like to immerse myself in creating colour changes and intensive and long colour corrections. These are the challenges that I absolutely look forward together with my clients. I love going through these processes with them and seeing the final result.
I pride myself on in-depth knowledge of our Kevin Murphy retail range for home care. I particularly like the in-salon treatments which we do with a hot towel and a head massage. If your hair needs restoring and repair, I am here to help"
"Archie Miglan is always professional, lovely and a pleasure to be around. He has taken care of me and my family for many years and his work is always excellent, no matter what we throw his way. I can rely on him for his consistency and warm smile every time I come to London"
Mark has been fundamental in creating the name and the Decadence brand from the very beginning, so he knows ins and outs of the salon. Mark knows the majority of our clients and they know him. He is the household name and face.
Mark started hairdressing at the tender age of 17 when he saw an advertisement for ‘model required’ in a salon window (Tony and Guy) thinking they were looking for fashion models. He soon realised it is not the same kind of modelling but Mark applied never the less and having experienced a brilliant haircut and how a professional salon works, decided to start the apprenticeship with Tony and Guy. After finishing his NVQ2, Mark stayed with the company for the next 15 years. He builds a long client list. Those same clients who went to see Mark in Ealing and Golders Green still come to see Mark in Decadence Salon. It is simple. They never trusted anyone else with their hair and this says a lot about Mark as a hairdresser and a friend.
Mark mastered customer service and professionalism in Tony and Guy. He picked the very best from them and brought it with him to Decadence. Mark is creative, hardworking, loyal, realistic and fair. His hairdressing skills are second to none. His scissors are huge and he knows how to handle them. His colleagues look up to Mark.
I asked Mark to name some of the specialities and without hesitation he said:
‘Precision haircuts – I love doing bobs, undercuts, short ladies haircuts. Choppy and edgy hairstyles too.
Gents cutting and staying. I can do scissors over comb all over or clippers although I prefer the scissors. Also, fading is something I really enjoy.
Restyles are something that excites me the most. I just love visualising clients with something totally different. Fresh, the new cut is the best feeling ever.
Another passion of mine is curly and wavy hair. Cutting curls is just great and exciting.’

Born and bred in Canada, with 15 years of experience under her belt, Tracy joined Decadence in March 2016. She settled in quickly and managed to build an impressive client portfolio in a short space of time. Tracy started hairdressing straight after finishing school. She soon realised she made the right choice. This gave her the tools to showcase her creativity; and hairdressing was a way of expressing her ideas and visions through colour. Before moving to London and joining Decadence salon, Tracy travelled the world throughout her career to Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Bali just to name a few. She finally settle in in UK and chose to try her luck in London.
Tracy specializes in colour and this is where all her passion goes. Tracy completed The Kevin Murphy Colour Master course last year, giving her tools to understand how the salon colour range works inside and out. If you are looking for a stylist who is going to be thorough and systematic look no further. Tracy is excellent at consultations. She never over promises and believes in complete honesty and transparency. Taking care of your hair after a salon visit is something Tracy strongly believes in. Therefore, if you have concerns and need advice Tracy is always there to help and guide you.
When asked to name some of her specialties, Tracy replied:
‘I really enjoy colour changes that transforms the whole dynamic of the style and to enhance the client’s best self.
Free hand work is one of my favourite with a natural and effortless result; as it gives me a challenge to put in practice what the client wants. Meeting their expectations is what I strive for. It is really great to see the final result and the smile on my clients face.
Colour correction is another great challenge that allows me to push the boundaries. The harder the challenge the better.
I also really enjoy creating textured cuts and up dos/event hair’
