My ideal mentee: I understand the challenges of taking on and managing a salon, but I can also help with the who, what, when and how of entering the fashion world.Syd Hayes

Session stylist

From Saturday boy at Nicky Clarke, to earning his stripes as a session stylist, Syd’s stellar CV includes keying fashion shows for Miu Miu and Versus, styling for magazines like Vogue Italia, British Vogue, Self Service and Love, and creating campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Givenchy. But he’s a true all-rounder, juggling his fashion commitments with running the family salon business and working as a brand ambassador for BaByliss PRO. “The salon is an anchor and keeps me on par with my techniques,” says Syd.
