In an industry based on superficial acceptance, a new entity evolved. One that celebrates the boldness of originality, creativity and self image. It started with a smart ass idea: Do something offensive that would shock the boring and resonate with strong minded rebels. People began to identify with the carefree attitude of the brand and appreciate the no bullshit approach. Our craft as hairstylists is to create art that solidifies the most authentic version of yourself. In a few years we decided to stop following trends and instead, start them. Fuck the generic perception of beauty and fuck anything that doesn't make you happy.
Also, fuck bad hair.
I am the owner of Fuck Bad Hair and a full-time creator. Twelve years of hair. BBA. Adobe Creative. Brand strategy. Artistically inclined. But who cares. I thrive on competing with myself and directing my insane visions onto my team. It's a twisted mindset but creativity has helped me stay excited about my work. I'm blessed to be recognized for my work and blunt personality.
After two years of being with Fuck Bad Hair, I've learned to visualize, formulate and be confident with my technique. Collaborating on creative work is not only rewarding but has really pushed my potential. It forced me to rock out some badass braiding I never imagined possible. Hair is art and in order to have your masterpiece come to life, your heart needs to be in it.
I'm the newest stylist to the team and have been doing hair for over three years. Since joining Fuck Bad Hair I've been mind blown and inspired to create alongside the team. I specialize in blending seamless extensions and utilize a braiding technique that minimizes damage to the hair. Currently I'm concentrating on dying natural tones and mastering colour corrections.
The vitality of our brand is based on innovation. The process of creating inspiration, dabbling in chaos and inevitable failure is something we've grown to love. The idea is to visualize something that doesn't fully exist. Inspiration can be stolen from everywhere. What makes the final product original happens during the execution. Our strategy is simple: find the right model, figure out how to formulate the vision, understand the placement of colours, style the final product and take a memorable photo. Everything usually goes wrong but we run with it. The end product could either be a disappointment or something we're proud to show the fucking world.
We work to be the best versions of ourselves. This comes from continual trial and error, breaking rules and risking acceptance. Not everyone likes what we do, but that's fine because we're here just trying to excite ourselves and not burnout from boredom.
Vancouver is saturated with every service but we like to align ourselves with people who have the same standards for what they do. Contrary to ignorant belief, when talented and successful people get together...good fucking things happen. We're lucky to be affiliated with a few of the strongest individuals Vancouver has to offer. Click to see their work.
We are always looking for models who let us do anything we envision for our creative days. Unlike the typical model call, our results are wearable and they never fade to an unmanageable colour. Models pay a discounted price. We are also specific on who we choose, preferably natural blonds or bleach outs and no previous dark dyes.
Another variation of model calls would be for training purposes. Juniors stylist who are learning new techniques and colour formulas.
