Gianni Scumaci’s approach to hair is as unusual as it is unique – see, it’s not the hair that is primary to his creative process but understanding the character he is interpreting.

Captivated by hair from a young boy, he only later realized it was people who fascinated him more and his ability to connect and communicate on a deeper level had a seismic impact on his decisions and direction with hair.

This has been apparent in his extensive work across the 3 hair genres of Salon, Editorial and Education. From building an 11 clients-a-day (fiercely) loyal clientele, to his work with iconic fashion photographers Tim Walker & David Bailey and his emerging brand of education, his approach to discovering, creating or developing characters underpins his passion for teaching ‘The Social Function Of A Hairdresser’.

Gianni will be opening the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival with a talk giving a rare insight into the creative process behind his approach and unveiling his latest work, a collaboration with the inspired movement ‘Sink The Pink’ which is being celebrated as an exclusive exhibition at Ocean Terminal.
