Kelly V (Pixal-Rose Hair Design)

Vegan Entrepeneur

Kelly Vowles is the founder of the Pixal-Rose Salon brand which officially began back in 2017. In 2018, Kelly took the leap to open the first official Vegan Founded hair salon in Swindon, which was one of only a handful of vegan salons in the UK at the time. As a pioneering concept in the hair industry, Kelly quickly gained the attention of national media, featuring on BBC news, Vegan Business Media and also shortlisting for a Green Business award in the Salon Business Awards. Kelly also became a national educator for a leading vegan hair colour brand before leaving to start her own specialist education company, working exclusively with ethical brands.


Fast forward to today and Pixal-Rose Hair Design is growing from strength to strength with Kelly at the helm, getting ready to expand into a dedicated academy, a vegan beauty salon and plans to open a second salon space later in 2023. Kelly has since been featured in further media such as The Times, The Mirror and Enterprise Nation and was also a guest panellist at Vegfest 2022 with a talk on how to get people to buy from Ethical Business.


Pixal-Rose Hair Design has also just been nominated as Swindon’s best hair salon by Total Swindon, which is a massive achievement for just over four years in business. (this is being announced on social media on Friday)


Kelly sees herself as an industry leader for ethical salon business and would like to become a spokesperson for more sustainable practices in the hair industry.
