Headcase Hair first opened its doors in 1997 in Sydney’s Paddington, founded by John Pulitano and Vincent Nobile. With John’s inimitable gift for hair cutting, fashion and editorial styling and Vincent’s renowned talent for designer colour, in each other they found the perfect equal. The duo proceeded to build a team of talented hairdressers who shared their same passion for hair, providing them with regular education sessions in styling trends, colour techniques, product formulations and advancements in the industry. In the 25 years since, they have been led around the world many times over by John who is regularly asked to style for designer shows in New York, London, Milan, Paris, and Sydney fashion week. Vincent has similarly spearheaded global colour education, holding prestigious positions as the Australian colour ambassador for brands like Wella and Redken, presenting countless seminars, colour presentations and major hair shows to his peers around the world.
In 2021, the Headcase headquarters was reimagined by award-winning interior designer Amanda Talbot, setting a new standard for luxury hairdressing in Australia, while a second outpost was opened in Sydney’s Pott’s Point.
Headcase Hair specialises in bespoke colour and precision cutting techniques, representing up to the minute fashion trends. Headcase haircuts are tailored to enhance the features of the individual and designed to maintain their shape, evolving as time passes to wear effortlessly and grow out seamlessly.
