It was a lack of inspiration from the hair references currently on offer for stylists that prompted Mattoni to start @losthairdressers. “I was sick of what we had to pick from. I think people forget how involved we are in fashion, and our goal is to resend the message,” he explains. "It’s a way we can even the playing field. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, it’s your work that counts, not your clout.”
That manifests as a fresh combination of current and archive fashion editorials, backstage fashion week photographs, and candid street style shots. It’s not just any style though, each post must entail a clearly composed image and idea. “It doesn’t always have to be about the hair, often times when hair is the intentional focus, things get lame. We like good photographs. We also love it when we can link the music and art we love with strong hair.”
With so many nuggets of gold posted on the @losthairdressers account, it’s unsurprising that Mattoni found it hard to select his favourites. Scroll through our gallery for a finely-tuned edit of some of fashion’s best hair inspiration.
