Twenty years in business is a big deal. So you kinda want to celebrate it in a big way. A 52-page photo-shoot in our September 2020 issue was the epic undertaking we chose to mark two decades of Creative HEAD and the brilliant collaborators who helped us along the way. Take a look at this fabulous work from Wella Professionals – now that’s what we call a birthday present!
Wella Professionals UK and Ireland technical director and creative director at Russell Eaton
Robert Eaton is truly an iconic hair artist. He is a visionary who creates beautiful, wearable and utterly stunning hair; he colours in a way that pushes creative boundaries while still looking commercial, feminine and beautiful. Robert’s technical ability and understanding of colour, light and hair texture, combined with his willingness to always share and educate others, make him a pleasure to work with. Robert is unique and inspiring – a combination that Wella Professionals is honoured to showcase.
Wella guest artist and co-owner of D&J Ambrose
Darren Ambrose is a genius when it comes to hairdressing as an art form, creating 360-degree looks that are visually mesmerising. Every image has a story like no other, and the journey that Darren takes us on to understand his creations is both unique and wonderful. Darren’s work is not just about amazing hair; he takes us to a place that fuses fashion, trends and history. This, combined with his impeccable technical knowledge, is why Wella Professionals loves to partner with him.
Wella guest artist and creative director at HOB Salons
Akin Konizi has a 20:20 vision like no other. Widely recognised for his precision cutting and the ability to turn ‘ordinary’ into ‘extraordinary’, when Akin develops a concept, the quality of his work and craftsmanship is exemplary. He is a true mentor and icon, his beautiful style is wearable yet progressive, and his ability to take trends and incorporate them into stunning, show-stopping hair makes him one of the most highly decorated hairdressers of recent times.
