New Zealand born Deborah Brider began her career with hair

at the age of fifteen, upon being accepted as a apprentice

at Buoy Academy in Wellington. Deborah's tutors quickly spotted

her obvious potential and encouraged her to continue training overseas.

She joined a multi award winning British salon

an inspirational institution which taught Deborah technical skills which

have been the basis of her success. As her confidence grew, Deborah's

vocation as a session hairstylist was realised and she never looked back.

Deborah moved to Paris and approached the legendary hairstylist

Eugene Souleiman as an assistant. Before long Deborah became

part of Eugene's trusted team and spent the next three years

assisting him on shows in London, Paris, Milan and New York.

As word of her ability spread Deborah found herself in demand with

other top international hairstylists and collaborated with the likes

of Guido Paulo, and Yannick Di’s working on creative editorial shoots

as well as on disciplined and precise technical campaigns.

Since emerging as an individual talent Deborah works for

magazines such as Haper's Bazaar, Elle and Vogue.

Advertising clients include Wella, Schwarzkopf and L'Oreal.

She works on artists such as The Boss ~ Bruce Springsteen,

Blondie ~ Debbie Harry and Angus and Julia Stone.

Deborah's professionalism, technical versatility

and engaging personality means that she is in constant

demand around the globe.

Deborah splits her time between New York and Los Angeles.
