Wanting to blur the lines between hair and fashion photography, long-time collaborators Richard Phillipart and Stella Morais embarked upon an epic tale of travel, texture and nature.
The hair looks are inspired by a nomadic lifestyle, collecting influences and directions from across the globe and merging these with natural elements to reflect the beauty of the wild world. Shot on location in Snowdonia National Park in Wales and supported by BaByliss PRO, the team battled the elements to create their art.
“The images presented in our collection reflect how we see modern hair photography,” explains the duo. “No longer is there a need for sterile headshots captured in a studio. Hopefully this will inspire people to create beautiful photographs of beautiful hair for their collections, rather than relying upon shooting the same old plain photos.”
