Great Lengths Awards 2018/19

Make like Angelo!

In Uncategorized by Lilly Cox

In a brave move, Great Lengths showed strength of character in recent years by inviting Angelo Seminara on board as creative director. For a hair extensions brand to invite such a high-profile, experimental artist was truly exciting and the rewards have been immense. We love seeing the collections Angelo produces for the brand, both avant-garde and more commercial. The most recent location shoot took place in the Namibian desert and the results are stunning. Equally Great Lengths can demonstrate how in-tune they are with the high street. Look at these gorgeous shots below to launch the new Great Lengths hair tapes… #tributeloves indeed.

Now it’s your turn! The Great Lengths awards 2018 are open for entries and we urge you to try for a title.
