Enjoy this beautiful collection by Javier Gomar, inspired by the fluidity and movements of balloons. The artist innovatively explores shape, style, and colour with a sense of movement. Nice!
Spanish hairdresser Javier explores how balloons change shape under pressure through touch and imagination. He wonders if hair can adapt in the same way, and the Balloon Collection investigates the possibility of drying hair to make it opaque whilst maintaining the volume and brilliance of colour. He discovered a way to change the shape of the hair with his fingers as if he were holding a balloon. Such creative work!
Let’s go deeper into his inspiration…
Javier says he has looked for different cutting styles with the intention to mould them easily and achieve different angles in the hair. He tells us that, depending on the applied pressure, it is possible to highlight areas of the hair, creating areas that appear more polished or have different volumes yet are on the same plane.
Now, Javier appreciates this is a somewhat avant-garde way of working, but wanted to make the results accessible, more commercial even. There are no extensions or added hair pieces. He has worked with hair tools and his hands, for a really artisan feel.
The set also joins the story.
A background has been designed entirely in plastic to show a changing environment and take a break from white backgrounds.
There’s a lot in here, so take care to look closely. We admire a project that does think outside of the box and we like how hairdressing is more joined up globally.
