Good things come in threes, with the announcement that Uros Mikic, Richi Grisillo and Jack Morton have been appointed as directors within Wella’s portfolio of professional brands.
Uros, three-time Hair Expo Men’s Hairdresser of the Year; and Richi, who is a prominent session stylist, will both take on Creative Director roles for System Professional, Wella’s premium care and styling brand.
“I’m honoured to be appointed as a System Professional creative director and to join forces with an incredible brand I admire. I look forward to collaborating on new developments and trends, and to be able to share my knowledge with salons”, said Uros, whose Adelaide salon Kinky Curly Straight will also become a Wella salon.
Added Richi, ”I’ve worked with Wella for over 12 years and admire how they encourage and support creative talent in the hairdressing industry. Wella is an invaluable part of my craft both in and out of the salon. I’m excited for the journey ahead and how we can elevate creatives within the hairdressing industry.”
Jack Morton, who is National Technical Director for TONI&GUY Australia, has been appointed as a Colour Director for Wella Professionals.
“Wella Professionals have been by my side my entire hairdressing career, so I’m thrilled and honoured to be moving into this role. I have always aligned with the innovative and dynamic approach Wella have to colour and cannot wait to see what we can create together!”
The new additions will join local hairdressing leaders like Renya Xydis, Frank Apostolopoulos, and Marie Uva who all hold Creative Director positions across Wella’s care, colour and styling offerings; as well as Brad Lepper who is a Creative Director for Sebastian Professional.
