Talented hairstylist creates spectacular flower-shaped designs
Nguyen Phat Tri, a young hairstylist from Vietnam, has been getting a lot of attention for his eye-catching floral hair designs.
Nguyen Phat Tri, 28 years old, graduated from An Giang University, with a degree in Biotechnology, in 2015, but as he always had an inclination for the arts, he decided to go to Ho Chi Minh City to study makeup and hairdressing. That may have seemed like a controversial career choice, but time proved that it was the right one, as young Phat Tri quickly made a name for himself on the Vietnamese hairstyling scene, thanks to some truly innovating techniques and designs.
Nguyen Phat Tri’s designs generate millions of views on social media, but few of the people who marvel at them realize just how much work goes into each and every one of them. The simplest designs take 1 to 2 days to complete, but the most complex of them can take 2-3 months to complete.
As you can imagine, Phat Tri’s spectacular designs are in very high demand, even though his work isn’t exactly cheap. Bridal designs are priced between 3 and 5 million dong, while his more complex signature hairstyles cost between 5 and 7 million dong.
Despite the lucrative business, Nguyen Phat Tri usually declines more requests than he accepts, because he prefers to dedicate his time to researching new designs and techniques.
"I want to inspire creativity in people who share my passion, and I hope to help Vietnam’s hair industry grow and reach the world,” the 28-year-old said.
Nguyen Phat Tri introduced his floral hair designs to the world in the summer of 2020, and he has since delivered various new models, including designs inspired by lotus, hibiscus, chrysanthemum, lily, and more.
The Vietnamese artist said that the most important thing for young stylists is to assess their talent because this is a field that requires an “artistic eye”. Then, they need to have the passion, perseverance and determination to pursue their dream.
