In the know – meet The It List It Guy of 2018!

The It List judges have spoken – and Paddy McDougall has been crowned one of the upcoming hair talents you need to book in with…

He’s had a couple of near-misses, but Paddy was finally crowned The It Guy in this year’s It List Awards, hosted by Creative HEAD Magazine. Rewarding emerging talent under 30, The It List is like a barometer for who’s hot and who’s not. Paddy’s so hot, in fact, that his career has been fired up like never before!


Juggling clients at Rainbow Room International in George Square, Glasgow, and his expanding session work is no easy task! He earned a coveted spot on Duffy’s team for high profile Fashion Week shows including Marni, Dsquared and Topshop Unique, as well as campaigns for Louis Vuitton. Meanwhile he’s been proving his worth as art director for Rainbow Room International, creating quirky cuts and trendy tones.

His mentor, the renowned session stylist Nick Irwin, was pleased as punch for his young protégé. “Paddy is one of those rare talents that comes along in this industry once in a blue moon,” he told us.
