This week, I’m delighted to welcome my very first overseas guest– leading Australian hair manipulator Shaun McGrath Wiggery– to learn about the epic wig work that he creates using recyclable waste.
Quite simply, Shaun creates jaw-dropping avant-garde innovations. He blurs the line between hairdressing, instillation and sculptural, and is making a stir in the worlds of fashion, art, and of course, hair. The growing focus for Shaun is in sustainable hair work, taking recycled waste from the salon floor to aid him with making future hair pieces.
In this episode, I ask Shaun about his career move going from London to Sydney, understanding more on his creative thought process, and his Creative Ambassador role for Sustainable Salons Australia. You’ll also learn about the pioneering programme where he’s helping towards the collection of huge amounts of hair in the preparation of any potential oil spils in the Barrier Reeth, Australia.
Join me as I get inside the head of this free thinking, quirky and creative expressionist – you’ll love what he has to say.
Thanks for Listening!
