We spoke to Mikey Forster Hannon, the renowned Creative Director of HORSE MEAT DISCO SALON about his style, his day to day and so much more.

How would you describe your style aesthetic?

I’d like to think my style is sporty luxe with a hint of street and a sprinkle of glam.

How do you start your mornings?

Every morning starts with a long black with a dash of milk. Then either a PT session, a yoga or Pilates class or a walk about New Farm park with my two Italian Greyhounds Rocco and Lola. 

How do you unwind after a day at work? 

A lovely meal with my personal chef (my husband Jonathon) and cuddles with my puppies and a glass of pinot while I catch up on The Block.

Pick your poison?  

Super Nanny Goat Pinot noir is my favourite, unless I’m in a cocktail mood then usual something with a big heavy Smokey Whiskey. Arnold Palmer’s are also a vibe by the pool in summer.

Three desert island hair products/tools?  

System Professional Solar Shampoo and Balance Mask and the Christophe Robin Salt Scrub.

A quote to live by? 

Once you think you know everything, it’s the beginning of the end.

Something you can’t live without? 

I absolutely can’t live without my husband and my pets. 

What cut and colour are you loving right now? 

Loving the shag trend and loving dimension. 

Forecast for a 2022 hair trend?

I’m noticing a lot of people are cutting their hair into styles and not just having a trim. I think we are going to see a lot more creativity and people embracing natural texture and movement more. 

Favourite Instagram accounts? 

I could name so many but these came straight to me – @markleeson68, @moniquemcmahoncolour, @lo_wheelerdavis and @lyndalsalmon.

A career highlight? 

Winning TrendVision 2020 Colour Specialist for Australia and then coming 3rd globally.

What piece of clothing or accessory can you not live without?

My LV Michael backpack. It has travelled the world with me and I use it every single day.

A song that will get you dancing without fail?

Freemason’s ‘Love on my Mind’. Every. Single. Time.
