Holli Smith


About the Artist

Smith is a Brooklyn based Hair Stylist who began her career cutting hair in her native San Francisco. In 2000, she moved cross-country to New York in search of a way to use her talents beyond the Salon. After two years Smiths drive and determination caught the attention of Guido Palau who quickly made her a part of his team. Smiths dynamic and diverse approach are influenced heavily by the rave/dance culture of the early 2000’s as well as her personal connection to the LGBTQ and Weirdo community. Her youthful, yet beautifully sophisticated, aesthetic can be found on the runways and campaigns for brands such as Balenciaga, ACNE, Opening Ceremony, Kenzo, Calvin Klein, R13, Lanvin, and Proenza amongst others, as well as collaborations with Collier Schorr, Harley Weir, Ethan James Green, and Willy Vanderperre.
