Bringing his cool sense of calm is Leigh Keates, who has nothing short of a stellar session resume. Hailing from a family of hairdressers, you could say his career fate was sealed (despite initial attempts to buck the trend) and he has fast-earned a reputation as one of the industry’s most exciting talents. Custodian of two It List accolades the One To Watch (now The It Guy) and The Fashionista back in 2011, his career hit the stratosphere with a signing to prestigious agency Premier Hair & Beauty. On speed dial with ‘It Girls’ Alicia Vikander, Felicity Jones, Chloë Grace Moretz, Dakota Johnson and Jessica Chastain to name a few, his flair for effortless hair can often be seen adorning the red carpet. Alongside famous faces, Leigh has worked with some of the world’s leading photographers, designers, stylists, brands and publications – Dazed, Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar, marie claire, Ponystep, Rollacoaster, Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Dior and J.W. Anderson are just a few of the names on a very long list.

Set to whip up a styling storm is the spectacular Lisa Farrall. An indisputable voice in session but also education and hair equality as the founder of WIG LONDON, Lisa has been turning heads with her creativity on an international scale for over 17 years. Her list of award wins is longer than two arms and she has an impressive track record, working with talent from A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar to Rihanna and Gisele. But that’s far from all, she’s also the current Hair and Beauty Editor for Noctis magazine and regularly styles for leading publications and TV commercials plus finds time to knock out a gorgeous hair collection or two. A force to be reckoned with, Lisa’s CV reads like a who’s who of top photographers, directors and brands, counting the likes of Rankin, LOVE, Vogue, Hugo Boss and Selfridges among her many collaborators.
