Tomer Nagar is a hairstylist and style director Toni&Guy South Shoreditch and an educator at the Toni&Guy London Academy. Tomer was born in Israel, his father is a hairdresser, and Tomer came to the UK eight years ago to follow his dream of working on shows and shoots as well as in the salon. Last year, Tomer won The Experimental One in The Big One trophy 2022. We love his avantgarde work and his way of presenting hair photography in a challengingg yet beautiful way.
