Artist Bio: Tomihiro is a hair artist hailing from Japan, whose work ranges from hair styling, head prop design, to wig making.
He started his career as a hair dresser 20 years ago. After having trained hair cutting techniques as a hair dresser for about 10 years in Japan, he moved to London in 2007. There he started working as a session hair stylist, and began making head props, seeking for his distinctive style, and also to blur the boundary between hair styling & headwear designs. Since 2016 he has ventured into wig making, having collaborated with the likes of Junya Watanabe and Björk.
'Hairstyles are closely related to our identity; they create both our inner and outer self. This can reflect our personality or, in some way, can hide our true selves.'
A selection of Tomihiro's new collection of incredible Tomi Kono Fancy Extensions & Creatures are now available at distal phalanx. Handmade in Japan.
