A long-standing and devoted client and former guest artist of De Lorenzo, Sydney-based hairdresser Michael Wolff has realised his dream of creating a beautiful coffee table book, revelling in the beauty of hair, with all proceeds being donated to St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney for bowel cancer research.
Michael was living what some would call a dream life travelling, meeting exciting and wonderful people and doing what he loves most, creating art through hair.
“I always thought nothing would go wrong, until I fell on the floor in extreme pain. I had no symptoms and was feeling completely normal – although when I look back I did have odd days when I felt really tired but I always just put that down to working really long hours. Most of my friends were getting health checks so on my return from Europe I booked myself in and bingo – in mid-January 2016 I was diagnosed with colon cancer.
When I first started my cancer treatment I felt I needed to be open and share my story. I prepared for the journey ahead and kept moving forward. I was trying to keep every part of my daily life as normal as possible and not adopt the “poor me” attitude” says Michael.
Created with photographer, James Mills, HAIR UNLIMITED celebrates Michael’s core values as a hair stylist, and also provides a platform to create awareness around regular health checks for our own health and well-being.
“I wanted to give something back to the incredible medical industry for further research, and this would also show my appreciation for the wonderful care I received at St Vincent’s,” says Michael.
“Michael has worked with De Lorenzo for many years which included directing many new season collections. It is very special to see his book come to life after the long process he went through putting it all together. It is wonderful for De Lorenzo to support him in this very meaningful and personal cause and we hope it raises much needed funds for research,” says De Lorenzo Marketing Manager, Bridget Bajada.
