Emmanuel Santana

Interview

What is your definition of a designer?
To question things. Well for me… Being a designer for me… I look at it as simplicity. What I am transferring back into people is to keep their hair as simple as possible. Designing shapes, color formulas and patterns that suit the person’s lifestyle simply. What works for them? Are they going to spend a half hour on their hair I can design something to where they can do that. You design certain hairstyles to fit the client’s lifestyle. It can’t be an impulsive move. I guess you could do that but we try to steer clear from that. You can’t fix haircuts, it takes a while to design haircuts as well as fix them. Educating a lot too because most people don’t know what actually goes into it. So you have to have a good wealth of knowledge in design and say “how do I do this”. Redesigning old forms because hair is more of a used canvass is what you’re getting.
