Michael Crispel, artistic team member for KMS California and owner of Earth, A Salon by Michael Crispel, in Toronto, is known for his personalized approach to cutting.
“Our goal is to neutralize all drama and create a market for all individuals, keeping our attitude in the hair,” says Crispel, who has been designing strong hair and make-up looks for the past 17 years.
Here, he gives our models cuts they can “switch around” to create new looks. “I would like to create different shapes with disconnection to allow the client to ‘accessorize’ her hair,” he says.
