James Brown

We have the pleasure of bringing you an exclusive interview with James Brown, one of the world’s most sought after and influential hair stylists.  

From his Croydon roots, James has carved out an enviable career working alongside some of the biggest names in fashion, including his friend Kate Moss who worked with him to create his new haircare range, James Brown London.

Here he talks about his career and new product range.

1. You began your hairdressing career at the age of 15 in Croydon, South London -  where did you work and what do you believe was your big break into the fashion world?
I worked in an old granny salon setting hair, and my big break was the cover of Vogue.

2. Who or what inspired you to become a hairdresser?
My sisters.

3. You have been friends with Kate Moss since your Croydon days – how did you meet? Looking back can you believe the unbelievable journey that you’ve both been on?
We grew up together. Not really, but I don’t tend to think about it. It’s just our lives.

4. How did the now infamous Vogue shoot with Kate and photographer Corinne Day come about? (James was only 22 at the time of the shoot – the youngest hairdresser to achieve this feat)
It came about as it was a time in fashion that needed a fresh change after all the va va voom supermodels! I was living with Corinne at the time, she asked if I’d like to help.
