Chris Appleton, one of London’s most inventive hairstylist, is passionate about creating statement hairstyles. He has proven that several times when working with Rita Ora for music videos, red carpet events, etc. British Vogue called him a Hair Star, and we are convinced they are spot on!

We literally only just discovered Chris ourselves, but we have long been fans of Rita’s hair choices! With an intuitive sense for forthcoming trends, and a keen eye for spoting the details required to complete the look, it is no great mystery why Chris comes highly recommended by those in the know.

He has worked with notable brands like Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Fendi, Moschino, and many more, including publishers like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and Tatler to name a few.

We loved the Adidas campaign too, Rita has always had a playful tomboyish and sexy vibe to her, and we feel Chris and the other creatives on the shoot captured that perfectly.


Chris made appearances on a few television shows in the UK and abroad, and has won several awards, including BBC3’s Hairdresser of the Year. He also has made a few online how to videos in partnership with L’Oreal:
