EUGENE SOULEIMAN





orking as a hair stylist for 25 years and 18 years doing session work, Eugene's career hasn't had it's perfect start.  His career started when he flunked out of art school.  He couldn't make a choice for a career, so he decided to go to a careers office and fill out a questionnaire.  The lady told me I would make a great hairdresser.  At the time I was quite shocked because I had never set foot in a hairdressing salon.  I decided to study hairdressing at college for 2 years.  I was the only boy surrounded by 122 girls and I loved it,” he says.  Then I passed my exams and went for an apprenticeship at Trevor Sorbie, which was a big salon.  His career took off when he met some friends who gave him the chance to work with an editorial magazine called the Face.  Eugene says that he never looked back since.  Being in the industry for numerous years you define who you are and know what you want and who you want to work for you.  Enthusiasm, and a sense of humor and a very strong work ethic, I like people to work hard and want to be proficient technically. There is one thing that no one knows about Eugene, he does session work, and he collaborates with 2 British artists called the Chapman Brothers.  At this point I am designing the hair of mannequins for them.  I like my work to be diverse and creative (there's nothing I would not try to create with hair, for me there are no boundaries).”  He views hair as a fabric that can be manipulated to create many textures.

Keeping your hair looking divine and healthy, Eugene tells me how.  Always use a top of the line hair shampoo and conditioner, and give your hair a treatment once a month.  (Prevention is better than cure in terms of condition).”  The hair trends for Autumn/Winter 2010?  He replies, hair up with multiple textures and also a new softer disheveled braid is making a large comeback.”  Eugene would like to be known for pushing the boundaries of hair.”  To become a success you have to, he says, "love women, a lot of hard work, enthusiasm and an inquiring mind.
