This week #FABloves @matrix hair artist, @jonathanjandrew. Following the family business, Jonathan has made a name for himself as Artistic Director at @JamieStevens7; winning the Hair Mag awards 3 times and this year's Most Wanted Male Grooming Specialist! We caught up to talk #hairtrends, inspiration and the defining moment of his career.
I was really inspired by my family, starting off with my uncle who went on to build a really big brand in Scotland🏴. When I saw what fun he was having and how much he was achieving, I couldn’t help but be drawn into the world!
This image is one of my favorites because it was a special moment in my career. With this cut, I won my first award for men’s hair, and that’s when everything started really taking off. I was inspired to play with shape and texture, as this was a theme in my collection. My main aim was to push the hair to create bold, strong shapes with subtle soft curves to add a new element to the look.
My trend predictions for 2018 might be a bit controversial, but I feel that men’s hair is going to become softer and longer. I think there is going to be more emphasis on traditional hair cutting techniques and I already see more classic haircuts coming through. Dare I say, we are going to see the skin-fade slip out of trends, as hair becomes a lot less aggressive next year. I think color is really going to have a big impact, with men really starting to play around with balayage and different tones.
Obviously, my boss, @jamiestevens7 is a big one, we are always running around so it’s good to be able to see what he’s up to. I’m a huge fan of our trade press accounts, it’s great to see so many people's work from so many different places. I’m a big fan of the work @kevinluchmun does and also an avid follower of the guys at @ruger_barber as they showcase so many cool looks and are really active on social media. .
