“When I started in hairdressing there was no such thing as men’s hairstyling, there were only cuts. Every man who came into the salon would be given a specific cut, for example the short back and sides, and then be sent on his way. There was no individualism in the cuts that were created. It was in 1980 that I started really thinking about this idea…how could I take a cut and make it into a style? I was always inspired by the kids on the street, and the anti-establishment rather than fashion and magazines. I loved punk, not because I actually liked the look of it, but because I liked the attitude. It inspired me to experiment with opposites which has always been prevalent in my work. The opposite of a good colour? Bad colour with regrowth. The opposite of a neat bob? Hair standing up on end. The opposite of a blunt cut? Using a razor to create fine, wispy ends. It was this train of thought that led me to create my all-time favourite hair image – The Wolf Man (pictured). This shot is the epitome of taking what is classically considered to be ‘good’ hair, and then turning it on its head.
