And we have a statement for you from THANOS on his passion: “Few things give me more pleasure, than being in my studio, making things. The trusty tools that my fingers have come to know like extensions of themselves, the old heads that stand in for the girls, the smell of the scorching hot irons, the glue, the dyes, the sprays, the secret concoctions. Experimenting with different fibers, developing ideas and looks to use in future shoots, designing characters for stories. Hair says a lot about a person; unlike clothes or make-up, we attribute hair as the person’s own. And every person, inadvertently and unconsciously, conveys and betrays so much about themselves, through their hair. I can tell everything about a woman, by her hair alone.”
Born in Salonika, in northern Greece, Thanos left his native country to study acting, art, and design in London when he was 17, but even as a child, he was always intrigued by hair. He found it fascinating that people can be someone else by the sheer use of different hair. "The actual material, the way it reflects light, the way it reacts to the elements: heat, moisture; the way it can transform a person by color, length."
