Angelo Seminara Brings Desert Beauty to Life in Exclusive Collection

(Andrew O’Toole) Deep red dunes and a light blonde flowing mane strike a dramatic contrast in this photo.

Admired for his imagination, Angelo Seminara’s approach to hairstyling is that of an artist, designer or inventor, translating his observations of the world into stunning, original shapes and colors. The award-winning, London-based stylist more than delivered on his most recent endeavor—a photo-shoot collaboration with Great Lengths in Sossusvlei, Namibia. “The high red dunes, Mother Nature’s stunning afternoon lighting and the simple linear landscape was the perfect backdrop for our creative vision,” says Seminara, who called on Great Lengths hair extensions to fashion long, free-flowing creations, which he accentuated with colors. “The combination of all these elements resulted in quite an awe-inspiring collection.”

Seminara used Great Lengths hair extensions and a flamboyage color technique to create this long look.


Seminara imbued hair extensions with blue haircolor and white clouds, proving that the sky’s the limit when it comes to his creativity.
