Inspired by Jimo Salako´s intuitive approach to hair cutting, we approached him as a subject for our next A Moment With film portrait, which captures the essence of Jimo and the SALAKO space.
Shot on a wintry Sunday afternoon, with natural light pouring into the studio, the film shows Jimo at work doing what he does best: cutting hair in a naturalistic, free-flowing style.
With just a comb and pair of scissors, Jimo created a textured, choppy long bob.
Using his fingers to create movement in the hair, his technique of hand-drying whilst cutting ensured that the style was finished with minimum effort but a whole lot of expertise.
The final style is reminiscent of European films from the 1960s, which are Jimo’s go-to reference when creating hair moods.
