IDEA BOOK - #HAIRTESTS

IDEA BOOK

As one of the world's most innovative and respected hair stylists, Guido Palau's collaborations with photographers such as Steven Meisel and David Sims have resulted in some of fashion's most iconic images. This new book, however, is far removed from a collection of previously published work. #HAIRTESTS has an immediacy and an urgency. It goes directly to the source.

“For me, this is primarily a sketchbook of ideas, and the young models I worked with were willing to be the beginning part of that sketch. My imagination was fuelled by their hair. The impulse was to create characters in a purely instinctive way.”

Shot entirely on a phone by Guido himself; the book aims to capture the essence of the models, and how hair can change someone.
