I want to share this “Creatures Collection” by Auckland, New Zealand based Danny Pato
I had the pleasure of sharing the Melange collection” by Danny Pato last year More here.

“The Creatures is the latest collection from multiple award-winning hairstylist Danny Pato. Photographed by Mara Sommer, The Creatures was inspired by Persephone, Queen of the Underworld and of creeping, buzzing creatures. Persephone was the daughter of Zeus in Greek mythology; a formidable, venerable, majestic queen who carried into effect the curses of men upon the souls of the dead.
Hair is black with contrasting textures, including feathers, foliage, diamonds and pearls. Dreds entwine with branches; finger-waves bend dimensions; water-waves turn into feather textures; and blunt cuts wisp into a halo of fly-aways.
Pato created The Creatures as part of the AIPP Grand Trophy 2019-2020, after becoming the first New Zealander to win an AIPP (Association Internationale Presse Professionnelle Coiffure) award.”
