maverick 88This week I’m reflecting on some of Vada’s most rewarding experiences … Maverick would have to be a personal best for me as Art Director for this project.

The Maverick –  cheeky rogue character – was  developed into a playful and multi faceted performance .This show  was an absolute joy to bring together all my favourite  people and demonstrate the way our Engine Room Art Team can collaborate with artists in mixed media to layer fashion, music, art, dance, theater and of course hair.

Take a look at the image essay which captures the mischievous Maverick and the Engine Room Art Team at its finest

On getting into hair styling :


I started when I was just 16 years old, it has been a true calling vocationally for me. I haven’t looked back a day since.

On what he loves about the job:

So there’s the people and then more  people …..and some fashion in there too.I love to see my clients  leaving Vada looking  great and that resonating into them feeling great about them10422357_374143256112758_5913678351791327243_n.jpgselves- its a real booster.  I also love that no two days are ever the same, being at Vada that’s so relevant as we always have different projects, shows & of course busy days with our clients, its an ever changing landscape for me and I love the diversity that brings.

On his top hair styling products:
R & Co are an iconic new brand that we partner with at Vada. This range is cruelty free, free of nasties,it’s vegetarian and mostly vegan apart from a product with beeswax. It’s also a high performing range that delivers- lovin that!

On his icons:

Definitely  Vivian Westwood- shes quirky, defiant and delivers powerful design.Her garments demonstrate  tailoring at its highest level which shows how important quality is to her.  I’ve always loved Kate Moss and PJ Harvey – two important faces in pop culture  with their own unique sense of style which sets them apart from the masses.
FullSizeRenderOn the big hair trends :
Blunt baselines – nuff said- unless to say, add some loose shaken up layers to the interior shape for movement- lovely stuff.

With colour I’m working with palettes of tobacco, gold and rose golds for autumn  . I like to merge tones,to create seamless lights through the hair.


made yourself at home already we see ; ) ….
