Acclaimed stylist Mikel Luzea has brought us a hairstyle collection that harkens to the days of shoulder pads, trench coats,
high-waisted and fitted skirts and heavily-coiffed hair. This is hair Haute Couture. The styles are very structured, sleek and
polished. They are to be viewed as works of art, rather than your garden-variety up-style. This is hair-as-artist’s-medium and
hair design as art form. In that regard, Mikel Luzea is a certifiable master.

Luzea claims influences for his collection from the 20s through the 50s, and centers on the theme of “perspectives” as the entire
photo shoot takes place in the same staging area –which is, incidentally, the hotel room in Pamplona favored by Ernest Hemingway-
and each photo merely brings one style to the foreground as that shot’s protagonist while the others provide background until it is
their turn in the limelight. This collection was created as an entry for the AIPP Grand Trophy, a prestigious international accolade
for which only 5 hairdressers were nominated.
