As a L'Oréal Paris Hair Stylist and rising star in the session styling world, Syd Hayes is one-to-watch within the hair industry.
Syd has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since he started session work and regularly travels the world as a session hair stylist. After an apprenticeship with Nicky Clarke in 2002, Syd moved to The Danial Hersheson Salon in London, and met with founder Luke Hersheson, who introduced him to the fast-paced world of session styling.
It was during this time Syd met the legendary hairdresser Guido Palau and worked as his 1st assistant on international shows, editorials and campaigns in New York, Milan and Paris.
By 2009, Syd was signed to Premier Hair & Makeup, securing himself as one of the UK's leading session hair stylists. Now, Syd regularly works with some of the best designers and photographers in the business, including Alistair McLellan, Mert & Marcus, Ryan McGinley and David Simms, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen and Versace to name a few.
Syd also appears in some L'Oréal Paris hair care videos and tutorials as part of his role as a UK Hair Styling Expert. He does this alongside running his family salon business, The Q Salon in West London.
