Fabian Fuentes of Jack Horton Hair won the title of QLD Hairdresser of the Year at the 2023 Australian Hair Industry Awards (Creative), for his collection titled NOMAD, describing the moment on social media as a “dream come true”.
With Fabian leading the hair direction and photography by Amber Toms, Makeup by Ru Blackwell & Rachel Appleyard, styling by Claudia Williams and colour by Jack Horton, the collection pairs metallic textured fashion styling, a golden backdrop and detailed shimmering makeup with complex, iridescent hair looks, which show mastery in cut, shape and colour.
Inspired by the natural Western Australian landscape, the looks take inspiration from the Outback’s night sky, stars and milky way, golden desert tones, the colours and textures of the Kalgoorlie Super Pit, hues within the sunset and the form of the Salt Lakes, Mounds, and Mountains in the regional and rural areas. This manifests in the images as multi-dimensional rainbow hues, creative short crops and artistic takes on length and layers.
Ethereal and mesmerising, NOMAD truly inspires.
