Current favourite hair trend? My own. Every girl loves a proper shag. (in hair that is)
You work with musicians including Haim, Calvin Harris and Bastille. What is it like styling hair for the music world? I always knew I wanted to work with musicians, it just came to me naturally. When you’re working with an artist it’s a collaborative effort on both ends. You’re essentially creating an entire brand for them. As a hairdresser you hold someone’s beauty and confidence, and set the tone for that person’s day. It’s imperative to create your own trends and also know everything going on in the fashion, art and beauty world.
As a frequent traveller, how have the places where you have lived and worked inspired your work? I’ve travelled a lot and have seen a lot and history constantly surrounds you. Growing up in LA you have old Hollywood, and going to Europe you can feel the history on every street. When I’m in the south of France all I want to do is 60s Bardot. But when I’m in London I’ll go back into 60s mod. It’s always determined by where I am that moment.
If you could cut or style anyone’s hair (dead or alive) who would it be and what would you do? Janis Joplin. I’d put some layers in and shape it, she needed a proper shag!
