Growing up, what shaped your creativity? Ever since I was young, I have had an interest in and studied art. My taste in art at the time was a grotesque style which could be considered less mainstream. Since then, I took a fancy to digging up and collecting images of art works and photographs that are somewhat non-mainstream and unknown to people. Such practice of finding new things helps cultivate my own knowledge of art and helps shape my creativity.
How did you first get into hair? When I first encountered the works of Guido Palau and Eugene Souleiman, I got into hair immediately and decided to be a hair stylist like those artists. I started working as an assistant at a hair salon in 2012 and became a freelancer in 2016. At this beginning phase of my career as a freelancer, most of my projects involved hair styling for e-commerce shoots. After that, I came across a great team who brought me into the world of fashion magazines, which allowed me to pursue more creative work. This helped me build a strong portfolio that shows who I am and now I work with musicians, magazines, advertisements, etc.
