London Hairdresser of the Year finalist Davide Spineli from Gina Conway Salons Talks Us Through His Stunning Collection


We LOVE looking at the finalist collections in the British Hairdressing Awards and with London Hairdresser of the Year being one of the most hotly contested and prestigious categories, we were thrilled to get a sneak peek at this one from Davide Spinelli at Gina Conway Aveda Lifestyle & Spas.

The Gina Conway team has had quite a year, appearing on 10 award shortlists, 5 of which they’ve already won. Davide told us,

“Studying Space 1 is the result of my love for contemporary art and cinematography. In 1999 on a trip to New York, I discovered contemporary art, especially the work of Lucio Fontana. It opened up a different world around me; being creative wasn’t about reproducing something you have seen or experienced before, but creating something truly unique. I began to experiment with the idea of space, inspired by Lucio Fontana’s work ‘Concept Spaziale, Attest’. The craftsmanship and skills of cinematography has captured my curiosity since a young age. The cool, crisp tones of period films and TV of shows last year, like Chernobyl, have intrigued me. I thought if I used similar tones, it would give a modern and contemporary feel to the collection.”
