According to the article
, “he remains heavily influenced by fashion and the arts, citing designers Hussein Chalayan and Yohji Yamamoto as two of his mayor
influences. ‘I like to look at how they make their garments, their colors,’ he says, ‘they inspire me a lot more than looking through hair books, which I feel can be quite limited.’
On His 4th British Hairdresser of the Year Award:
“I think with the British Hairdressing Awards, like many things in life, I never think about old politics, I try to just go straight to the heart of what it is. It really pushes hairdressers to compete and do something that they wouldn’t normally do, even if you’re working for Vogue or Dazed, there are always limitations, and this really is just about hair, and doing what you love.”
“I think it comes from running wild when I was a child! I’m planning on starting my first book, which will have the whole story. I want to share the message with younger hairdressers that it shouldn’t just be about ‘being famous.’"
On the Future:
“I’ve never had the chance to build my own team because I’ve always worked for other brands. The teams that I was on were always for other people like Trevor Sorbie, L’Oreal, Salvaggio in Italy, TONI & GUY… Now I have this urge to build a really cool team, which I’m going to sort out very soon.”
