In the high-stakes world of fashion and hairstyling, few have proven themselves as versatile and in-demand as Leon Gorman. A hairstylist and artist who intertwines editorial elegance with raw vitality, Leon's unique approach can be traced back to his upbringing in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. There, he followed in the footsteps of his mother, an Irish hairdresser who instilled in him an unyielding passion for the art of hair. Swapping the bucolic Irish countryside for London's bright lights, Leon joined the esteemed Toni & Guy in 1987. As the company's Education Artistic Director, he spent over a decade traversing the globe, refining his craft and forging deep connections within the fashion industry. After a sojourn in Sydney, Leon journeyed to New York City, where he quickly became one of the industry's most sought-after session stylists, working alongside legendary hair maestros in Paris and Milan. Leon's trajectory took off as he collaborated with top-tier designers and prestigious fashion photographers, gracing the pages of the most illustrious publications like Vogue, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Marie Claire, and V Magazine. His impressive celebrity clientele includes the likes of Kate Moss, Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, and Ewan McGregor, demonstrating his ability to transform the tresses of the most discerning of clients. In 2019, Leon Gorman returned to Europe, making Milan his home base. From this vantage point, he continues to style advertising campaigns for Armani and Kiton, and has recently lent his talents to San Remo Festival 2023 and top-tier brands like Bumble & Bumble, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton. His latest artistic endeavor, a fine art photography exhibition titled "Timeless," in collaboration with photographer Max Vadukul, showcases his prowess in creating vintage, retro looks that encapsulate the struggles of women in the 20th century. Leon Gorman's body of work embodies not just beauty, but also a deep understanding of the artistry and precision required to create modern, compelling looks that resonate with the most demanding of artists. His keen eye for detail and unwavering commitment to his craft ensure that each head he touches is transformed into a masterpiece that transcends time and trends. With Leon at the helm, the world of hair artistry can only continue to flourish.
