“I always say ‘hair is like

a fabric’ and I

appreciate designing it

as an accessory to the

clothes,” says TIGI

European Session

Director, Maria Kovacs.

Cutting it on

Great looking hair

complementary to the

clothes may be a quiet

contributor to a

designer’s latest vibe

– but it’s an essential

element which helps

seal the deal of a collection’s

success. Many hairdressers love the

idea of working backstage for

runway shows, but it takes a special

type of person with particular skills

and characteristics to make it in the

fashion arena. Forging relationships

with designers, nurturing

connections and proving your

worth are essential in order to

become trusted to work on a new

collection, with the designer totally

confident the last model out looks

as good as the first.

As long-time Official Sponsors of

London Fashion Week,

TONI&GUY is an absolute

authority on catwalk

collaborations. The company’s

International Artistic Director and

Head of Education, Cos Stakkas,

says sometimes it takes just one

season to hit it off with a designer,

whereas it may take a couple of

seasons of collaboration with others

before they feel completely

comfortable with you as their ‘go to’.

“I also like to think we’re a first

choice because they’ve seen our

work from previous seasons and

know about our positive brand


Fabulous hair is the stylish accessory to every

designer’s newest collection. We dip into the jamboree

bag of fashion to find out what it takes to cut it as

a catwalk hairdresser extraordinaire. Maria Weijers
