With suicide being the main killer of young men, I wanted to create a collection that showed how the darkness of depression and mental health problems can affect even those who appear most confident and happy. I also wanted to highlight the positive benefits of man sharing and talking their feelings.  

Three of the images express negativity and three positivity – all combined with sharp, cool textured haircuts.
This collection was created to help promote better mental health in men, particularly those who work in the barbering and modelling profession.
