Last night Director Guy Roberts put Hanz de fuko through its paces – launching the brand to the NZ media and Stylists . Hanz de fuko – already a solid on Vada’s list of ‘boys gloop in a jar’, These little pots have grown a cult following on social media.
Hanz de fuko is a quirky stylish grooming range, developed by three childhood friends and champions of chemical free products. Its uses plant extracts, delivers weightless hold without residue and clump free.Amongst its fanbase are David Beckham, Hugh Jackman and Michael Fassbender
The brand bombed our youtube highways with savvy tutorials, using brand ambassadors with serious hair kudos to instruct us in the ways of the pompadour and the modern quiff.
The bestselling ‘Quicksand’ matte wax is made using diatomaceous earth, a soft granular rock which absorbs excess oil on the hair and scalp. ‘Claymation’ is another to become your go to gloop – a clay-wax hybrid mixed with a touch of quicksand to provide a strong, pliable grip.
The home care range of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel are rich in mint, apple and eucalyptus.

This 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
