Kenneth Wildes

“I’m Kenneth Wildes, and my career began nearly 45 years ago, training with luminaries John Dellaria, Trevor Serbie, Irvin Rusk, Vidal Sassoon, Bumble & Bumble, and Toni & Guy. I worked at and managed many of these storied salons and brought those experiences to bear in starting my own businesses.

I opened Kenneth Wildes Salons in Westwood Massachusetts in 1979 and followed with a second location in Brookline in 1987. Today, I have consolidated our businesses into K/WSalons, our flagship, two-story salon in the thriving neighborhood community of Newton Centre.

Hairdressing is and always has been my passion. The creative process of transforming my clients’ looks to achieve their own brand of beauty is what brings me to work each and every day. And with that comes my passion for teaching.

At K/WSalons, we groom premiere stylists in our intensive, in-salon training curriculum. We mentor and coach our stylists to hone the craft of cutting, coloring, and styling hair while helping them to develop their own unique creative vision. Through over 40 in-house weekly workshops, our stylists train for over 1,200 hours until they are truly ready to perform to precision standards on the cutting and coloring floor.

Our teaching methodologies have produced some of the best stylists in the field. Many of my protégées have started their own successful salons with the skills they acquired on my watch, and I wish all of these businesses continued success. At K/WSalons, we will continue educate and launch talented professionals that will shape the future of the hairdressing industry within a brand and culture that strives to be “Better Than.”
