In competition for the AHFA Australian Hair Fashion Video of the Year 2016
My inspiration for the Australian Hair Fashion Video of the Year category was to create a sultry and wistful portrait of an artist – Eugene Sokolovs Creative Director at Ette Studio Hair Salon – and his human canvases.
The ambience is pensive – a reflective portrayal – a barren and windswept coastline – evocative – poignant.
A virtuoso of hair and style approaches his human canvases – they are veiled – secretive – enigmatic.
An ocean zephyr gusts – the timeless sea relentlessly and passionately embracing the shoreline.
One by one, the virtuoso removes the shrouds revealing three classic beauties – innocent – incongruous – human faces of spiritual beauty.
He presents them to the elements – the sea and salt air caressing their long and flowing hair – these rare treasures – these precious gifts from a higher power.
He knows they have nothing in common, but are everything alike.
The virtuoso stands proud – his delicate creations vulnerable – demanding his attention.
With relentless authority, the ocean continues to roll upon the sandy shore.
A sea hawk appears above – powerful – awe-inspiring.
The virtuoso understands the bird of prey’s supremacy – its inspiration – its magic.
He gazes once again upon his three beauties and knows that magic is but an illusion – but within his own raw visions, creativity, dreams and fantasies, all is possible.
