#APHRODIZZIAK Real fans, STYLIST SPECIAL
I’m Johnnie Sapong. I’m an international session hairstylist. I spend my time tending to the tresses of models, actors and public figures
LISTENING / WATCHING / READING
I like listening to reggae. I like watching animation and superhero movies, which has been rekindled since having my children. I love reading comics! I find inspiration from art, music, nature and being able to collaborate with like-minded creatives
My wife and my boys. All things hair…my wife says I eat, drink and sleep hair!

When your client brings in a photo of a model who doesn’t have a fringe, and they have decided they want a fringe! Many tears in the chair……….But that’s why we love hair; it will grow back!
