A Q&A with Nelson Brown... Q What’s your creative practice and where are you based? My creative practice covers all aspects of Hairdressing – design, styling, colour, technology, development. This allows me the freedom to create. I live and breathe hair!
My work varies from managing my salons and teams in Dumfries and Lockerbie to developing and delivering cutting edge styles for television productions and fashion runways around the world. I love being able to bring the experience and knowledge from these international experiences back to my teams and clients here in Dumfries and Galloway, and especially to the students attending the Nelson Brown Hair Academy. I am passionate about making people feel incredible and being in a position to educate and train the new stars of the future, and to share my creative knowledge is a huge part of what motivates me.I’m based in Dumfries and Lockerbie in South West Scotland.
Q Tell us about some collaborations you are working on. A current collaboration I feel so good about and am really proud of is happening right here in Dumfries and Galloway. Rock ReDress is a fashion movement created by the Circle Vintage team in Dumfries. Their important ethos is sustainability and slow fashion They have given me full artistic control over the hair and I have developed some styles which is SUPER Creative and wonderful to do. It’s also a very positive and strong message to us all that we must stop abusing our world and pay attention to what’s useable again for us, for our kids future, for all of us.
