Inspired by the Dutch Masters, the latest collection from awardwinning husband and wife duo at Stafford Hair Paul and Leisa Stafford is more than just evocative; Muse challenges the very essence of what it takes to nurture creativity. ‘Our initial idea was about capturing the light and shadows of the Dutch school of painting in the 17th century, to recreate the textures associated with Vermeer and Rembrandt,’ explains Leisa, whose own creative approach has won her a place in the finals of this year’s British Hairdressing Awards in November. ‘But this triggered a fascination with the Old Masters themselves and the subjects behind the paintings. We began to think about all the muses who, through the years, have inspired artists, such as Edie Sedgwick with Andy Warhol. It made us wonder what happened to them.’ Paul and Leisa’s focus on the relationship between muse and artist has led to a stunningly contemporary and thought-provoking collection. ‘Many of these relationships were tragic, ending badly for the muse, leaving her in obscurity and poverty,’ adds Paul. ‘We decided to bring a voyeuristic element into the shoot with our regular photographer, Lee Mitchell, where we isolate the muse from the painting, looking behind the art to the source.’ Between them, Paul and Leisa have won seven major awards to date. Earlier this year, Paul was recognised in Canadian Hairdresser magazine’s 21st anniversary Mirror Awards as one of the greats in International Hairdressing.

‘The variations within metals, from the soft apricot of gold to the harsh grey of wire wool, fascinate me. So I used colour and shape to capture their essence and draw out the contrast between their solidity and smooth, gentle beauty. I emphasised strength by shooting with strong, defined shadow that accentuates bone structure while revealing an essential femininity. ‘ Steven Smart
