The international success and solid reputation of Michael Brennan is built on an extraordinary foundation. In many ways it’s a very European story. Studying art and design at university then apprenticing in Dublin, he describes his training as “classical” in the sense that he worked with the best in the business from day one. Exposed to different hair aesthetics and the full range of cutting and styling techniques, Brennan went on to travel for six years between Milan, Paris, London and New York doing the shows with Luigi Murenu. Brennan describes the shows as the core of fashion, an environment where skill matches art under tremendous pressure. He defines his work as a balance between pivotal elements:
“Skill. A sense of proportion. Time management. Style and instinct: great hair is a puzzle that has to fit together in the moment.”
Brennan’s experience on the runway and polished editorial work swiftly developed into a unique relationship with celebrities. It’s a chemistry he describes as “beauty and transformation created by trust”. Responsible for iconic looks of stars including Heidi Klume, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Dannii Minogue, Delta Goodrem and the Olsen twins, Brennan’s passion and perfectionism shows in every shoot. The scope of his corporate clients and sheer range of his work reflects a global standard that never wavers and a spirit of change that keeps him at the forefront.
