Senior Hair Stylist/Colourist
At age 18 Adrian started his hairdressing career in London studying at the World- renowned Vidal Sassoon Academy, which after 5 years he then progressed to teach as an instructor. His philosophy is that, ‘we never stop learning’, this said, Adrian moved to the Urban Retreat Salon in Harrods and trained with some of London’s best session hairstylists.
Looking for new challenges, Adrian decided to relocate to Sao Paulo, Brazil and took up the position of Head Stylist at Studio W JK. (Brazil’s most famous and sophisticated Beauty Salon). Working with 2 full-time assistants by his side, Adrian reached upwards of 26 clients per day. As a teacher, Adrian conducted various workshops throughout Brazil under Wella and L’Oréal. Wanting to pass his knowledge on to a greater audience, Adrian decided to ‘give back’ by reaching out to the 800,000+ homeless community by offering free haircuts to those so underprivileged.
Having such a strong technical foundation in hair helped liberate Adrian’s own creative language. This ‘language’ he passes on with comfort and ease to each and every client who sits in his chair.
Adrian’s love of Art, Design and Architecture also inspires him to work with abstract expressionism through photography (adrianluke_)and he has ongoing exhibitions in Sao Paulo and Paris.
