Eclecticism is the collection from Amy Gaudie of Urban Chic that recently took home the title of QLD Hairdresser of the Year at the 2021 Australian Hair Industry Awards, a collection predicated on true diversity within a unified aesthetic.

“Eclecticism is a fusion of ethnic diversity, combining cultural women and placing emphasis on their unique intrinsic qualities,” Amy shared.

“I incorporated multi textures and dimension and used a combination of sleek, afro and glossy finishes to bring it all to life. Each model had their own flavour highlighting the female form, allowing us to capture them as the empowered women they are.”

Shot in black and white, the collection jumps off the page or screen in its textural variance, in hair and fashion, and with bold shapes and details that catch the eye.
