Growing up, when did you know you wanted to become a session stylist? Session styling came to me as I fell in love with art history. I wanted to create that emotion, challenge my creativity and develop my skills. I refuse to plan ahead, instead I tap into the moment that engulfs the creative team and just let myself get lost. I like looking at modern shoots and magazines, but never want to simulate what I see. I always felt a deep connection to anything that had a little more age to it.
Your hair colouring imagery has a coherent dreamy or romantic feeling. How do you translate these feelings or ideas into practice? I believe it’s a blend of close analysis and liberty, polar opposites, and the mystery that links the two. Trusting in my skill set while also accepting to discover my weaknesses – failure, as some might perceive. Being somewhat aloof translates just as it should, for me.
In what ways can the hair industry become more hair conscious and sustainable? It starts from within. If you are conscious of your breathing and well-being, you will then appreciate your existence and power here on earth. We are part of an ecosystem where we have the ability to save, preserve and also heal. Green circle salon has given me hope in preserving these values. They create so many alternatives with our otherwise wasted goods. The institution I am part of, Freyja, is like no other. Our founders deserve major love. I can now connect my values to my craft.
