Have you found any alternative outlets for your creativity while confined?
Roberto: Yes, you have to be creative, I went grocery shopping and shot what I bought before dinner! I also have tons of objects in the house, this is the time to shoot them too.
Olivier: Recycling is a great alternative and it’s very creative, I have so much stuff in my work room, new, old, ancient! It was time to combine everything together!
What are you missing most about your job?
Roberto: I surprisingly miss deadlines!
Olivier: I miss the contact in the flesh with people, I am tired of speaking to them through a screen.
The answer to this may well be a big ‘no’, but have any unexpected positives come out of this incredibly difficult situation?
Roberto: Yes! I am more relaxed (although the situation is very stressful.)
Olivier: Yes! Having time for yourself, having the luxury to take it slow.
What are you hopes (and fears) for the hair industry when this is all over?
Olivier: I’m hoping for a more decent way of working, more humanity… My fear is the economy falling apart!
