Behind The Scenes: Alessio Matta x Collectible DRY Magazine

This week on the blog, we wanted to share something very special with you from our Creative Director of Hair, Alessio Matta. Alessio is a powerhouse of hair, styling not only for magazines such as Vogue and Stella, but he's styled a range of celebrities too which just adds his impressive portfolio.

So it comes as no surprise to us here at the salon, that we've been able to kick of 2020 in style, with the fist official shoot from Alessio under his Colour Palette title for Collectible DRY Magazine.

Titled "NYE Beauty Glow" the shoot showcases the best there is in premium beauty from Gucci to Chanel and Dior. Creating beautiful looks on the model who stars in the shoot, Alessio's role on set was to make sure the hair shone just as much - because let's be honest, it isn't a full look without a good blow-out.

We honestly couldn't be more proud of Alessio and his work as well as the whole team who just "get" the whole Colour Palette vision and beleive us when we tell you that this is everything and more that you can expect from us for 2020 and beyond.

Finally, before we share the full gallery with you, we asked Alessio a few questions of what it's like to be behind the scenes of such a fabulous photo shoot:

What's it like being behind the scenes of such an exciting photoshoot?

Behind the scenes is always exciting and full of energy - I love to work with professional creative people. It's amazing when you combine everyone's ideas all together to create something beautiful. And the magic truly happens when a great photographer like William Ferchichi understands your work and captures it producing amazing images like the ones featured in Creative DRY.

What's was you inspiration for styling the hair?

The inspiration came initially from the brands signature looks, we then met and brain-stormed ideas with the stylist, make up artist, and Photographer as well as the magazine Editor to ensure we were creating next-level, modern, timeless images that still represent the brands.

In your experience, what it's like to work on shoots for a big magazine?

When ever I work on a shoot it's always so exciting and the work that goes into it is the same weather it's for for a big magazine or smaller one (Of course for a bigger one there is a bit more pressure). I love that the team works collaboratively to create something that represents a little bit of all of our creativity combined.

So now the moment you've all been waiting for ALL of the images in one place!
