The next time you're in London, head to Spitalfields for a unique hair experience. Hair&Jerome is a salon unlike any I've ever seen: The decor is that of eccentric Victorian, but the hairstyles that come out of this studio are wholly modern. In fact, stylist Jerome Hillion's vision earned him the distinction of British Avant Garde Hairdresser in 2005. He has just released this year's avant-garde styles, and I'm fascinated by the shapes and textures he's managed to create. Here's his explanation of what motivated him:
"The inspiration behind this collection came from analysing all aspects of theatre and dance through different eras. I also wanted to put forward the elegance, sophistication and femininity within the theme. The final product is held in an imaginary world which triggers a question: which era does the collection belong to?"
Of course, these styles won't work for everyday—but they're not meant to! I love the fantasy and artistry in these styles, and the photography is beautiful, too. Hillion's cuts are £60 (around $120), which isn't cheap but is surprisingly reasonable for London! Check out the gallery below and let me know what you think!
