Kinki Artistic Team

KINKI ARTISTIC TEAM

The KINKI team includes some of KINKI’s most talented hairdressers. These hairaddicts are booked for hair shows worldwide and are involved in the photoshoots within KINKI. In recent years, the KINKI team has made a name for itself internationally and is among the top artistic teams in the world. They’ve shared their knowledge with hairdressers from more than twenty countries and counting.

Every year we add upcoming talent to our team so it continues to stay updated and innovative.

Within the KINKI team we call the scouted young talent the KINKI Buddies. The buddies receive internal training from the international KINKI team so that their talents grow. Currently the KINKI Buddies are Pablo Hernandez and Valérie Guillaume.

WHO IS KINKI?

At KINKI you can be your true self.
Whoever you are, where ever you’re from en whatever style you have. We always put 110% in our efforts, we have the guts to experiment and for years we’ve been THE color specialists. This makes us unique as a hairdresser. Our creative minds are always searching for innovation and we always think along with you.

At KINKI the doors are open for everybody, including you!
KINKI has never lost its creative, edgy image in 35 years and has since grown considerably. Standing still is not an option for us! Our interior is a colourful and unique eye-catcher. Our hairdressers, true professional idiots that are looking for the latest techniques and innovative ideas. Spread across the Netherlands, KINKI hairdressers are busy with heart and soul practicing the hairdressing profession every day.

OUR SALONS

Our interior has been a leading part of our brand experience since day one.
The basis is the same everywhere, but the salon owner determines the ultimate vibe, through his or her personal touch.

KINKI TEAM MEMBERS

CASPER WIGBELS

My name is Casper Wigbels and since 2019, I have been the proud owner of Kinki Kappers Straatweg in Utrecht. I have been a Kinki Team member for the past six years and have been lucky enough to, together with my fellow team members, share my knowledge and passion about this amazing line of work with others across the entire globe. The Kinki Team represents our brand in many different ways and, to me, symbolizes a free haven for artistic and creative development.

I specialize in creative cuts and colours and focus specifically on shapes, cut-and colour compositions and challenging colour schemes. On top of this, I combine my knowledge of hair with my great love for photography. By doing so, I have been able to gain a lot of experience working on productions and projects within Kinki Kappers and have been lucky enough to work with extremely talented people across all fields.

IF I WAS A...

CITY
Bangkok, hot all the time, amazing food and a sometimes little crazy.

DESIGNER
Iris van Herpen, simple on the surface but incredibly complicated up close HAHA!

MUSIC GENRE
Disco, because who doesn’t love a smooth bass line?

COLOUR
Black, because it goes with e v e r y t h i n g.

MEAL
Tempeh kapsalon, want tempeh kapsalon, duh!

MICHAEL VAN DOORN

My name is Michael van Doorn and I have been working at Kinki Kappers for eleven years. In 2018, I became the proud owner of Kinki Oudegracht in Utrecht and recently also became the proud owner of Kinki Amersfoort. I have been a member of the Kinki Team for about eight years now and originally auditioned for the team because I wanted to make the absolute most out of hairdressing. The team has allowed me to do demos, shows and workshops (to beginning and advanced hairstylists, alike) all over the globe.

The Kinki Team provides a platform to make things like this possible. You get the chance to do allt these demos/shows/workshops, but also get the chance to be a part of amazing photo-, video, and step-by-step shoots. Most importantly, however, is personal growth. My speciality lies with diverse, technical, disciplined work and it is of great importance to me that my looks are impeccably neat and have a sharp-as-can-be finish. This applies to commercial work, as well as creative work without limits.

IF I WAS A...

CITY
I can’t Identify as one city. To me every city has something special I can identify myself with.

DESIGNER
I would have to choose Alexander mcQueen. He accomplished so much with almost nothing. He  trust in his own creative vision, and he creates things that are completely unexpected. And most importantly he does not give a fuck about what other people think.

MUSIC GENRE
Old school hiphop, because it has a real message.

COLOUR
White, because you can see every detail.

MEAL
The mixture of African, European and Asian is always a good choice.

PETER-PAUL WILSON

My name is Peter Paul Wilson and I’ve been working at Kinki Kappers for just 18 years now. I hear what you’re thinking. What do you mean just 18?

Well, because I can remember my first day as an apprentice in this beautiful profession (18 years ago) as if it was yesterday. Every day, I went to the salon with a smile on my face and came home with an even bigger smile. My passion for this beautiful craft runs in my family: my grandfather and uncles had been running their own salons for years and when I found Kinki, I was finally able to fulfil my own dreams. From apprentice to trainer, from salon to stage and now finally proud owner of my own salon in Rotterdam. Even after ten years on stage as part of the Kinki Team, my passion for the craft is as strong as ever. I specialise in geometric shapes and even though cutting hair is my absolute passion, my love for colour offers the perfect finish. I love experimenting with shapes, colours and techniques, as long as everything suits my model. Hair will always be the leading factor, but it the depends on the full picture whether a look is fantastic, or just good. Experimenting with hair is never boring, will never be completed and a hairdresser never stops learning. That is what makes, and keeps, our profession so fascinating. ‘Don’t fear the future, create it.’ A citation from one of history’s greatest, which is literally inscribed onto my skin.

IF I WAS A...

CITY
Rotterdam, 100%. The city through which everything passes to the rest of Europe. Nothing is more beautiful, more raw, more modern or more streetwise than Rotterdam. From the harbour to the Euromast, the Swan to the trees, everything you’re looking for in terms of shapes and creativity can be found in Rotterdam. Subtle or raw, water or skyline, nothing makes me feel more at home than the city of Rotterdam.

DESIGNER
Gaudi. Actually more of an architect than a designer, but nothing inspires me more than his shapes and designs. Modern yet organic, smooth yet sharp. His feeling for light and colour is truly out of this world.

MUSIC GENRE
I’m a 90s Kid. Nothing beats Hip Hop and R&B from that age.

COLOUR
Orange. They say it’s the new black, but it’s also the proud colour of The Netherlands and, therefore, has a special place in my heart.

MEAL
Meat, Veggie, Indonesian, French, Fish, Tapas, Italian, Greek, Turkish, I can keep going for a while. I just really love food.

JESKE DE CORTE

My name is Jeske de Corte. I am the proud owner of Kinki Den Bosch and have been a Kinki Team member since I was about 16 years old. Why? To keep challenging and educating myself and push my skills beyond its limits. By surrounding yourself with amazing hairstylists, you’re always pushing the bar, forcing yourself to keep moving forward and grow as a hairstylist. That has always been my aim.

And yes, I love being on stage! I really enjoy the diversity in my job and thus also train and educate beginning hairstylists until they’ve reached the top, also. I am also a photographer and shoot my own collections. Moreover, I run my own salon, in which I find it amazing to see my own Kinki family grow. The combination of creating an awesome cut through graphic shapes with a special colour technique is what makes a look for me. What gives it dimension. Like music to my ears…

IF I WAS A...

CITY
New York, the variety off people, smells, art and lights. You can just sit in a corner and explore.

DESIGNER
Iris van Herpen, pure and beautiful.

MUSIC GENRE
Not okay to choose… from metal to Latin to Goa.

COLOUR
White, you still have all of your options to be creative.

MEAL
Thai Curry, main reason I travel to Thailand is to eat.

SALLY DIJKMAN

My name is Sally Dijkman! I’ve been working for Kinki since 2015 and joined the Kinki Team on April 2019. I like being in the team so much, because developing my skills and getting inspired by the other team members gives me so much energy!

Some like colouring, some like cutting. I like the combination. Creating a super sharp cut combined with an interesting colour palette is something that really speaks to my imagination.

IF I WAS A...

CITY
Tokyo the craziness of the city and the amazing creative people walking around.

DESIGNER
Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.

MUSIC GENRE
From 1960 hippy music to 1980 batcave music.

COLOUR
PINK!

MEAL

MAUD VAN WIJNEN

Hey! My name is Maud and I work at Kinki Oudegracht in Utrecht. I absolutely love working on photoshoots, videoshoots, and shows, as well as to give workshops and masterclasses. Through these type of projects, I get the chance to meet and work with other creatives, which is greatly inspiring and motivating to me, which I need for my own personal and professional development. I have only been a team member for the past two years, but have been given the chance to do all of these different things, which is just amazing!

The team is always growing and developing exponentially, which I think is fantastic. The fact that you are always being inspired to be the best version of yourself and to carry this forward to others, motivates me massively!

I specialize in colour. I am still exploring this field and am always trying to find new ways to incorporate my inspirations into new looks. Colours with a lot of different nuances and a great feel of depth make me really happy. Not just in hair, but in everything around me.

IF I WAS A...

CITY
Berlin. The vibe of this city speaks to me. I feel like everybody can be themselves, and no one looks at you in a funny way if you have a more outgoing look. To me the streetstyle of Berlin is right up my ally. In general, Berlin gives me the vibe that its okay to be you, be free, and that a little party never hurt anybody.

DESIGNER
Kaws. I just like how he, for instance, pictures famous characters in another way.

MUSIC GENRE
Reaaaaally tough question. My music taste just keeps flying up and down. I do find myself listening to experimental electronic music, and this is of course quite general, but at this moment I like artist like Ivy Lab and Flume.

COLOUR
I think I would have to pick the color green. This color to me can be calm, but also really bright and in your face, and thats what I see myself as I guess? But also green hair to me is like my natural haircolor. I keep going back to green, and If I do not have the green hair, I miss the green hair.

MEAL
The only thing I could think of is a big mac, I am sorry that this is not inspirational, I just really like Big Macs.

LINDE HEIJSTEK

My name is Linde Heijstek. I am 23 years old and work at Kinki Kappers Hoofddorp. I have been working at Kinki Kappers with pride and joy since I was 16 and have been a member of the Kinki Team for five years.

Why? Because from the very start of working at Kinki, I have had a tremendous passion for both hairdressing and the company itself. You are not just a hairstylist, you work for Kinki Kappers and that is something that everyone at Kinki is very proud of.

I wanted to learn as much as I possibly could, which is the reason why I auditioned for the Kinki Team. At the time, I just thought ‘ah, let’s give it a go and see what happens’. Little did I know I would be doing so many demos and shoots in just a few years. I still do these with great joy, as it gives you the opportunity to keep growing. I specialize in colour. I love all colouring techniques!

IF I WAS A...

CITY
Tokyo! I love the creativity and craziness of the city.

DESIGNER
Alexander McQueen. He designed the most beautiful pieces of art.

MUSIC GENRE
I love almost all music genres from metal to soft music but when I go out I love the vibes of a good drum and bass party

COLOUR
Pink is my happy color

MEAL
I loveeeee me some good burrito!

RENSKE DIRVEN

My name is Renske Dirven and have been working at Kinki Kappers Amsterdam Middenweg for quite a long time, but will be proud owner of Kinki Kappers Amsterdam North in the near future!

I have been a Kinki Team member for six years now and love to share my creativity and love for hair with my fellow team members. Rocking out on stage together and enjoying each others work is what I love most about the team. By doing so, we are always striving to go the extra mile, to reach the next level, to be an even better version of yourself. To never stop learning!

I really love graphic looks with sharp lines combined with a subtle colour accent or a beautiful colour blending.

IF I WAS A...

CITY
Tokyo! So much creativity and hectic, but still really calm..people.

DESIGNER
Alexander McQueen.Strong and soft at the same time.

MUSIC GENRE
Disco. Not really loud, but really happy…

COLOUR
Imagine your colors with it.

MEAL
Sushi! Looks simpel, but a lot of different flavours.

IRIS HOEBEN

Hi, please let me introduce myself. My name is Iris Hoeben and I’ve been working with Kinki Kappers for more than 15 years. At the moment I’m working at Kinki Kappers Rotterdam Nieuwe Binnenweg. I’ve also worked at a vintage hair salon for a while, where I was responsible for education. I learned a lot of new skills there, but I quickly started missing the creative diversity of Kinki and being able to be my authentic self. Apart from hairdressing I also worked as a stylist and make-up artist in the fashion world. But my true passion was clear: I’m Kinki in heart and soul!

I want to share my passion, love and knowledge with other hairdressers through education, shows and photoshoots. This is how I ended up at the Kinki Team, an amazing chance. I have a broad taste in style and this shows in all my work: Vintage to hip hop and classical to punk! As a hairdresser I’m a real jack of all trades, and I love to get inspired by different cultures and subcultures. I’m also very passionate about discovering new things and meeting new people. I love to entertain people with my love for hairdressing.

IF I WAS A...

CITY

DESIGNER
So hard to pick just one, I love everything from McQueen to Coco Chanel!

KINKI COLLECTIONS

CHAIROSCURO

In a world divided it is wise to remember there can’t be light without the dark. These two are, in actuality, different perspectives of the same thing. Together they paint the complete picture. How would you define light when there is nothing called darkness? In this collection we play with light and darkness to show the power of contrast, and how the light and darkness are linked. We show what contrast in color, length, symmetry can do, and the emotions it can provoke.

ART EGO

Everybody got an Art Ego. A part of you that’s colorful and doesn’t think in black and white. A part that knows no limits and goes with the flow. With this collection we wanted to translate the art ego’s color and flow to hair.
