Beauty: trompe l’oeil takes hair

 2.jpgWhimsical and fun, trompe l’oeil has been everywhere this year, from clothing to tattoos, but hair? Meet Angelo Seminara, British hairdresser extraordinnaire and International Creative Director for the Trevor Sorbie Artistic Team – the mastermind behind this trompe l’oeil crimp.

The crimp was dyed on the hair using hand-made stencils cut from electronically created patterns. Seminara began his career as a trainee Barber in his home town in Italy. Five years later he moved to Rome for a job with Toni & Guy and set his sights on Trevor Sorbie in London. Bringing together his love of art with elaborate patterns and intricate detail, Seminara styles hair like an artist at his canvas. With textured hair as the ‘it’ do all over the F/W10 runways, perhaps painted-on texture is the next new thing for the fashion forward.
