Katsuya Kamo (Japan) is a renowned hair and makeup artist, who is most known by his incredible head pieces. Kamo said in an interview that he wanted to be a fashion designer but didn’t know how to do that. A friend showed him hairdressing work and he gave it a shot instead. His dramatic approach of hair styling is a kind of sculptural work in which he uses the most varied materials as feathers, paper, wood, plastic and hair itself.
One of his most important collaborations is with Junya Watanabe and in the Spring of 2009 he created the whole headpieces to Chanel's collection from paper flowers.
