Massimo Di Stefano

Massimo Di Stefano is an Italian hairstylist based in London. He began his career in Napoli, inspired by the vibrant youth culture linked to the musical scene of the early 1990s. Drawn by London’s unique energy and determined to expand his technical skills further, Massimo moved to the UK in 1996 and applied for an apprenticeship with Vidal Sassoon. Six months later a haircut from Massimo’s final test was selected to represent the company’s annual collection. As a result, he was invited to join the International Creative Team at the iconic Vidal Sassoon School and Academy. Over the last fifteen years Massimo has regularly worked backstage during New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks, styling hair for couture, prêt-à-porter and menswear shows. Meanwhile, he has also founded an training and image-making company, owned a salon in central London and collaborating with a number of leading hair care brands. With a flawless aesthetic and an obsessive attention to detail, Massimo Di Stefano brings in an industry experience, spanning over 20 years, to every editorial, campaign and special project. A passion for architecture and design and a broad spectrum of cultural references are unmistakable in Massimo’s work, characterized by an eclectic and idiosyncratic sense of style.
