About Angela Hertel:
Angela’s extensive experience as a hairdresser spans three decades, four fashion capitals and multiple disciplines – including film, theatre and fashion. The art of hair is in Angela’s blood, beginning her training from a young age in the family business before honing her craft with a Masters in Hairdressing and relocating to London in 2006, where she furthered her career as a hairstylist in high-end salons such as Andrew Jose and Taylor Taylor, alongside some of the world’s finest creative talent. Since 2009 Angela has been working as a session stylist, applying her creativity and skills in both traditional and innovative cutting, colouring and styling techniques to fashion editorials, advertising campaigns, and the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris. What’s more, amidst her career as a session stylist she has also found the time to experiment in hair and makeup for the TV industry, working on high-profile shows including Homeland.
