SHAY DEMPSEY

GLOBAL ART DIRECTOR

Thinking outside the box is Shay Dempsey’s stock in trade – he’s the kind of artist that puts most in the shade. His search for ideas and inspiration has taken him across the globe from Europe to South America, with the catwalks of fashion superstars such as Henry Holland and David Koma along the way. “We’re trying to push the boundaries, turn the dial up and give hairdressers a new way of looking at things.”
