IN PRAISE OF ARA GALLANTThis morning I’ve been looking at the work of one of the most shockingly inventive hairstylists that ever held a can of hairspray. Ara Gallant was best known for perfecting the extraordinary ‘flying hair’ style while working for Vogue in the ‘60s. Ara Gallant was the first hair stylist to be paid to solely style hair by a magazine. He styled twenty-six covers for Vogue. A true artist, he admitted ‘I hated hair styling. But I was good at it!’ His most famous creations were with the photographer, Richard Avedon. I adore this man. Love Susie. x
