Please join us in-store for a book signing with Guido Palau on Saturday December 4th 4:30-5:30PM.

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

“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.”

“The images present an artist’s rendering, a visual journal of characters. It’s not about the
photograph per se. I simply recorded the results on my phone. I am not a photographer,
but just like everyone else in the world, I have this device, like an extension of my hand,
which records what is in front of me.”
