British born Mohapi began his career as a hairstylist in London, working for John Frieda, Nicky Clarke and Daniel Galvin before moving into the world of session styling. He has since worked with photography heavyweights including Rankin, David LaChapelle and Herb Ritts. Mohapi explains that his background as a session stylist has heavily influenced his approach to BENJAMIN, from the brand’s artistic aesthetic down to the hairstylists he employs. “Session styling taught me about identity,” he explains, “using styles to define identities is what that world is all about, so it always seemed to me that was how we should approach our salon work too”. As a result, many of the salon’s stylists are also involved in session work, creating looks for editorials, campaigns and films.
