Kamo started his career as a fashion designer but decided to get into makeup/hair after a friend showed him the hairdressing work in a Salon.

Kamo has designed and created stunning headpieces for brands like Chanel, Fendi, Junya Watanabe (from Comme Des Garcons), Maison Martin Margiela, Undercover and Mintdesigns among other brands. His fantasy head pieces have also been featured in photo shoots for Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, Dazed & Confused, and Wallpaper*

More a sculptor than a hair designer, Kamo’s collection for Chanel Spring 2009 was entirely created out of paper. Simply beautiful.

  1. Amazing wasn’t it!! I was amazed that you could take photos – BUT only with an iphone (infuriating because I don’t have one!!). Will have to go back with my mini ipad. Photo quality will be compromised though. Totally amazing and extraordinary exhibition.

    • Oh yes!!! I loved this show! And was in heaven when I realized you could take pics! That’s a new one in this city where is so hard to take photos at exhibitions like this one. Go back with your ipad, even if the quality is not that great, you’ll treasure your photos once the show is over. Cheers may xo
