About the Author
Tease it. Curl it. Straighten it. Make it shine, make it bounce. Shellac it with spray into a virtual sculpture. Hair is what you make it – and Nicolas Jurnjack has made it all. Styles may change, but what he brings is more than style – it’s art. In the high fashion hair game for 30 years, Jurnjack has had his hands on all the great manes that have graced the pages of the world’s most well-known fashion magazines. Born in Marseille in the South of France, Jurnjack landed his first styling opportunity – with French ELLE no less followed by his first cover of Vogue Paris two years later, which ignited a passion to learn, and launched an extensive career. Jurnjack relocated to a tiny basement flat in Paris and surrounded himself with magazine clippings and plastic heads. (A striking visual, no?). The result of all this private work was a vision and style that was uniquely his own. Talent like this is not for 2D alone. Designers have put their runway models’ heads in Jurnjack’s hands. The freedom of working for such stunning talent gave Jurnjack the platform for some of his most iconic and memorable looks: from hair styled into bird cages, to abstract expressionism for McQueen’s show "It’s a Jungle Out There" , to the elaborate- minimalism of Japanese Geisha hair for Givenchy’s "Eclect Dissect". These looks and more for prêt-à-porter and haute couture lines have been broadcast around the world during Fashion Week in Paris, Milan, New York, Tokyo, London, Sao Paulo and Berlin. His work has been internationally recognized, nominated and awarded many prizes. At twenty-seven years old he was invited to create hairstyles for an artistic exhibition for the International Festival of Fashion at the Louvre Museum, photographed by the legendary photographer Jeanloup Sieff and featuring Russia's first super model Olga Pantushenkova. And now? Talent like this is no longer for the elite alone. Three decades of experience at the top of his profession have given Jurnjack the desire to share his knowledge and expertise with a wider audience. From the very start, he’s had a passion for education & organic hair products – from bottle design to styling innovations to tutorials – and as his career has proven, when Jurnjack has a passion, there’s no stopping him.

At times I felt like the curtain twitcher, experiencing a certain uneasiness on the one hand, yet while still keeping to the shadows, hungry to know more as the artist's vulnerability was exposed. At times I was transported in time to actual events and became one with the actors on that stage. Emotions are powerfully delivered as we are taken behind the scenes in the fashion industry and introduced to legendary icons.
Not to be overlooked is the wonderful collection of original sketches compiled over the decades.
In The Hair is a triumphant slice of life of a master fashion hairstylist, Nicolas Jurnjack.
