The next time someone asks you who cut your hair (and they absolutely will if you see Syd), what if you could say it was cut by one of the hottest hairstylists currently in the UK? Syd Hayes ranks among hairdressing’s most exciting talents – in fact, he’s so hot right now that he just scooped the Most Wanted Session Stylist award for the second year running at the Most Wanted and It List Grand Final, hosted by our sister magazine, Creative HEAD.
Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Miu Miu, Valentino, Versace, Missoni and Givenchy are just some of the names he rattles off when asked who he’s worked with, not to mention incredible shoots for the likes of Vogue, Love and Allure (just look at some of his creations below), as well as working backstage for fashion shows, including Christopher Shannon, David Koma, Pringle of Scotland, Sibling and Mary Katrantzou – phew!
The last year also saw the launch of his already iconic Syd Pin – the perfect sleek, minimalistic and versatile accessory which instantly shot to the top of our wish list. When the likes of top beauty editors and Victoria Beckham are giving it a shout-out on Instagram, you know it’s legit.
When he’s not globe-trotting, you can find Syd still at his family salon, Q Cut in Kew, Surrey. We tracked him down at the Most Wanted awards and he confirmed that he works Wednesdays and Saturdays in the salon, but that it can vary due to his demanding schedule (and he’s only set to get more in demand since his win).
