23-year-old Iggy has been making a name for himself as the quietly confident colourist turned session stylist. Rising up the editorial ranks, he’s become known for his ability to execute complicated styles with fearless ease and speed.

Before hairdressing Iggy always had a creative aptitude, exposure and education in classical and contemporary arts. It is ultimately this complementary and enhancing factor that drives his passion to achieve high standards as a session stylist. Iggy strongly believes in hairdressing as a form of art and a vehicle to explore his ideas in a practical way. His forward thinking ideas help him develop concepts into something meaningful and aesthetically pleasing. He has been fortunate to have been mentored by some of the biggest names in the industry, which helped to nurture his technical abilities, and developed his foundations. He has been a member of the L’Oreal ID artistic team and Kevin Murphy session stylist team.

His cutting edge aptitude in fashion keeps Iggy at the top of his game as he continues to move forward with his impeccable credentials that include international and prestigious work at New York and Paris fashion week with fashion icons such as Cara Delevingne, Liu Wen, Karlie Kloss, Lindsey Wixon and Chiharu Okunugi (see left image).

A glance on his work can be viewed through his extensive publications portfolio that includes pieces of work that circulate from America to Australia, Russia, France, London, Germany, Milan and New Zealand among others.

Not surprisingly he has been the recipient of numerous accolades and holds the title of the Australian Creative Colourist of the year 2013 granted at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards. Adding to this, he held the Gold Medal from highly competitive Wella’s Trend Vision for Australia in 2011.

Iggy is currently floating between the Australian capitals on direct bookings as well as internationally particularly New York and Paris for international commissions.
