There are some people who are destined to stand out in the world of hair, genuine creators who seek a deeper level of artistic stimulus so that they in turn can invent and inspire. Announced as AHFA Avant Garde Hairdresser of the Year in 2015/16 and member of The 2016 Australian FAME Team Nadia Semanic is one of those inimitable artists.
At the age of 26, the intelligence and thoughtfulness with which Nadia approaches her craft is truly visionary. Unassuming and almost unaffected by her accolades, Nadia is a purist, always searching for things that enrich her-mentally, emotionally and physically, the result is an unquestionable artistic originality and a conceptual thought process that is a prize worthy narrative in itself.
Appointed as a senior member of the TONI&GUY Australian Artistic Team in 2016, Nadia provides a rich contribution to the popular assembly, delivering unfathomably intricate structures and distinctly textural finishes. Nadia’s transition from Avant Garde to Hair Fashion is fluid and yet her portfolio reveals two mutually exclusive aesthetics demonstrating Nadia’s intelligent approach to each individual brief and her proficiency across the entire hair spectrum.
A popular contributor to the TONI&GUY National Education Programme, Nadia thrives within a small-group learning environment. Inviting her peers to fully emerge themselves into her think tank of infinite inspiration and observe the complete blue print of her many creations, she is a generous educator and an accessible creative.
Nadia is totally committed to resourcing as much training and development as she can, and as such can authentically endorse the importance of education to others. Whilst many are quick to caption their lives as 100% hair focused, her titanic portfolio of work and experience provides validation of a pursuit that does not require additional façade. Earmarked as ‘an icon in the making’ by many already awarded the title, Nadia is backed by the genuine reverence of her peers and mentors alike, rather than one to watch she is one to keep watching. A beacon for genuine artistry on the global stage, Nadia is a stylist that possesses the creative prowess to position Australia as a real contender in world leading hair design.
Nadia is based at TONI&GUY Georges from Tuesday to Saturday.
