Clients of Headonist hair and beauty salon in the Hub were surprised recently when they turned up for their regular appointment to find a film crew in the salon! The salon had been chosen to help disguise Peter Marks, CEO of the Luminar Group based in Milton Keynes, and the subject of an episode of the hugely successful Channel 4 series, Undercover Boss, broadcast on Monday 9 July.
With the choice of having a wig fitted or his head shaved Peter was naturally keen to find a wig to transform him from Luminar boss to Mark, an accountant. The Luminar Group own some of the country’s best known venues such as Oceana, Liquid and Lava Ignite and as Mark, Peter visited three of the Groups’ nightclubs incognito to experience the business at the sharp end.
“It was quite a challenge to transform Peter but luckily the wig was very effective once it was styled” says Vanessa Couzens, Headonist co-owner.
