Can you tell us about the concept of this shoot? It’s a very poignant and symbolic shoot for me because it coincided with my decision to close my salon business in order to go back to hairstyling. My friends and I decided to do the shoot in the actual salon itself. The flowers in the hairpieces were part of the interior of the salon too. In the early days I’d dried hundreds of flowers to decorate the ceiling. I always thought I’d like to use them to my work someday…
What’s the most extravagant hair brief you’ve ever worked on? Probably this shoot!
What’s got you excited in the hair world at the moment? The thing that’s inspiring me the most recently is the naturally dishevelled hair that kids have when they’ve just got up in the morning. All messy with bits of food in their hair!
Which creatives are currently inspiring you? My constant source of inspiration is Hyunwoo Min. He’s my closest friend and I always get so many ideas and inspirations during our conversations. I also really admire the work of the hair artist Gary Gill.
What are you working on next? I’m preparing an idea of using hair on the human body to express the silhouette. I’m currently trying to work out how to make it witty without overdoing it.
