Icon series – Angelo Seminara
Tribute to an Icon.
Hi there my friends, As I reflect on amazing talents in our profession, one that will always stand out from the crowd is my hair hero and icon Angelo Seminara. I love his humility, creativity, brilliant technical skill and vivid imagination. Angelo stretches the limits of what hair is capable of doing and then pushes more, BUT He never compromises beauty. Award winning artist at the British hairdresser of the year awards I hope you enjoy his work. I challenge you to recreate these looks, many of which are a mystery in construction.
Who is Angelo his is a genius.
Angelo began his career as a trainee Barber in his home town in Italy at the age of 11. Five years later he moved to Rome to take up a job with Toni & Guy, but he already had his sights firmly set on London.
Since 1995 Angelo Seminara became Trevor Sorbie’s protégé and International Creative Director. Angelo Seminara has captivated clients and inspired the work of hair professionals around the world with his creative drive and passion.
In 2010 Angelo went freelance and has been working all over the world on shows and seminars. 15th January 2011 Angelo started as the new Art Director for Davines Spa.
He has also developed an incredible reputation on the catwalk circuit and his celebrity client list is impressive, but it hasn’t gone to his head, he maintains his gentle nature and carries with him an aura of calm.
Angelo has always been absorbed with his work, and delights in creating new shapes and textures, constantly pushing the boundaries – seeing hair as a fabric. Today he remains captivated by the possibilities of hair, and is adept at bringing out every client’s natural beauty.
Working closely with session stylist Eugene Soulieman, each season Angelo is involved with at least 30 international fashion shows in Paris, New York, London and Milan, where his creations have brought him international acclaim.
