Nelson Brown, who comes from Dumfries, said of his involvement,
It is an absolute honour to be chosen to work with Olympians and their families during the London 2012 Olympic Games. I’ve watched the Olympic Games since I was a child and I am thrilled to be a part of this historic event. My Mum has always been hugely supportive and encouraging to me and I couldn’t be more excited or proud to be here as part of the team thanking the women who helped these athletes to become the best in the world.
P&G Salon Professional President, Adil Mehboob-Khan, said,
P&G is totally committed to thanking Mums for the amazing jobs they do all over the world, and is proud to offer a dedicated team of talented and top-class stylists and colour experts to help Olympians and their families celebrate this life-affirming event. Nelson Brown is a highly accomplished hairdresser and we are delighted to welcome him and the whole team to London for the 2012 Olympic Games.
