Takaya Hanayuishi made the move from his most outstanding culinary background to fauna in 2004, whereby he introduced a new style of hairdressing that incorporates freshly-cut flowers and vegetables. Through the use of the same attention and care in which he soulfully dedicated to preparing his complex dishes, the self-taught artist first affixes the bouquet of plants to styled hair, carefully arranges them like a florist, and only then begins the pruning process with a pair of hairdressing scissors.
He describes himself as “the one who ties together flower and person”, and makes sure every single masterpiece is cut especially to fit the individual’s face and dress.
Now a days, his one-of-a-kind craftsmanship is being commissioned for weddings, live performances, and media companies.
A poem that best describes Takaya's work:
Remembering the time when I had a flower clipped in my hair,
Remembering the time when flowers were close to me,
Tying flowers like tying hair,
Nature, trees and flowers, dressing up elegantly,
The flower artist, TAKAYA,
The one who ties together flower and person, HANAYUISHI.
Not a single component is made before hand—everything is done on site.
