November 5th, 2020
We speak to Vincent Nobile, the Co-Owner and Colour Director at Headcase Hair, about his aesthetic, trend forecast, career highlights and so much more.
How would you describe your style aesthetic?
Beautiful, fashion-forward, lived in cool, seamless.
How do you start your mornings?
Ideally, a swim or walk with my dog, breakfast and coffee with my wife, plan my day and off to the salon.
How do you unwind after a day at work?
I have a very active mind, so I usually read to shift my focus away from my day. On a Saturday, I resort to the easier option; a good old fashioned drink.
Pick your poison?
Scotch or Japanese whisky, neat and good quality.
Pick three desert island hair products/tools?
YS park tail comb (simple but can’t do any colour without it), a huge tub of O&M Powder Lightner and your largest bottle of O&M peroxide. I could continue creating so many beautiful colours just with these three things.
A favourite quote?
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better” Albert Einstein.
Something you can’t live without?
My wife and my dog (sorry that’s two things)
What cut and colour are you loving right now?
Kaia Gerber bob with progressive, modern pops of colour. The shade of colour doesn’t matter as it’s more about the effect. I’m loving creating these in lots of tones from iridescent chocolate hazelnuts to all sorts of blonde progression.
Forecast for a 2021 hair trend?
I’m predicting that colour will have more dimension and that we’re going to be creating bolder looks as people want to let loose and have a bit of fun after this crazy period. As mentioned above, I’m now taking pops of colour to the next level and will continue doing so into 2021, so watch this space!
Favourite Instagram accounts?
A career highlight?
About a year ago, I decided to focus my energy on my newly refurbished Paddington salon. It truly represents myself, my business partner and our brand Headcase Hair. I look forward to many more career highlights as we enter this next phase of our brand.
