MEET THE EX­PERT

Nur­tur­ing cre­ativ­ity

Hair - - Editor’s letter - Text Priya Chaphekar

Hair­dress­ing is more than prod­ucts and tech­niques… it’s about be­ing abreast with the con­stant in­no­va­tions in the in­dus­try — and that sure needs ef­fort. For the very same rea­son, TIGI iden­ti­fies pro­fes­sional hair­dressers for their artistry, and brings fresh new styles and tech­niques from around the world to In­dia, through a host of in­ter­na­tional artists.

Hair­dresser meets bar­ber

Known for his pre­ci­sion in cut­ting and ex­act ex­e­cu­tion of hair­styles, Kieron spe­cialises in the area of men’s hair­styles. “My aim is to take the artistry of the hair­dresser and the pre­cise ex­e­cu­tion of the bar­ber to cre­ate men’s hair­styles for the con­tem­po­rary male mar­ket. Men are now more in­ter­ested in their hair, more aware of trends and happy to not only change their hair­cut, but also use dif­fer­ent prod­ucts to achieve the fin­ish they want,” he says. While in In­dia, Kieron cu­rated var­i­ous looks and styles for the In­dian mar­ket and hosted a num­ber of suc­cess­ful trade shows and events in Mum­bai. Of the many looks cre­ated, the most in­ter­est­ing ones were — Clas­sic Style, The Ad­vance Look, Bar­ber­ing and Clean Up­dos.

“Hair­dressers are con­stantly look­ing at ways to cre­ate dif­fer­ent tex­tures and fin­ishes us­ing clas­sic cut­ting tech­niques and then ap­ply­ing ad­vanced fin­ish­ing tech­niques.”
