Hair Artist — Bob Recine.

Hair Art by Bob Recine
Bob Recine was first introduced to hair when he met legendary French hairdresser Jean Louis David through his friendship with Andy Warhol as a young musician and artist in 1970’s New York. Recognising Recine’s talent, David invited Recine back to Paris with him, giving Recine the opportunity to become immersed in the world of hair art, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Recine describes himself as a visual constructionist and fine artist, but is world renowned for his hair art, having worked with the likes of Lady Gaga, Tilda Swinton, Mario Sorrenti, Helmut Newton and Irving Penn.
