COIFFURE AWARDS SHOOT 2019
BEHIND THE SCENES

Once a year, hundreds of Dutch Hairdressers compete in the prestigious Coiffure Awards. This is where the top of the top show their hairdo skills and creativity by sending in a photo series to be judged.

I am really happy and proud to say that our team got rewarded at the annual Coiffure Awards Gala with a first place in the categories ‘Men North’ and ‘Press’. In this blog I will take you behind the scenes of this photoshoot.

THE AWARD WINNING SERIES

ABOUT THE CREATIVE CONCEPT

This series is all about the outsiders, the eccentric, the quirky, the extra- extraordinary. Destined to wander through life with looks outside the bounds of ‘normal’ – whatever that may mean.

A unique beauty that makes them stand out.

What once might have been a point of uncertainty, developed into a strength. They flourished into stronger, more driven and confident beings. Behold the power of these authentic appearances.

CAPE-TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA

Shooting on location in South Africa was important to the whole team. Not only because Cape-Town is close to our hearts, but also because this location sparks our creative energy.

Most Coiffure Awards entries are shot inside a studio. But we chose to do it differently. We feel that it adds to the whole concept to shoot in nature.

Wind will give a flow to the coupes so that they are not too man-made, but natural falling.

The hair-shapes are reflected in the forms of the rocks and blend smoothly together – it all comes together.
