Coming from an art background, I handle hair in a different way than most hairstylists. A head of hair, to me, is a canvas, ready to be turned into stunning art. Catching attention, making people look twice, creating a certain aesthetic... This is what I love.



I took my first steps into the world of fashion photography in 2014. Through hard work, perseverance and creativity, I gradually made a name for myself and continue to work on my skills every day. Hairstyling is an art form where you can never learn enough, and I am still continuing on to perfect my craft.


The past few years I have gathered experience in fashion photoshoots, runway shows, movies and fashion videos, as well as working with a wide range of clients. I am open for collaborations and bookings - just send me an email at

"I would have given you 7 Stars, but there are only 5. It was such an honour to meet you and let you work with my hair. I look at the pictures and cannot believe what magic you used to make me look like that. What I had on my head was a single piece of art and it almost hurt me when we had to undo everything after the shoot.

You are definitely the most talented hair stylist I have met so far and I am sure that you will be succesful in the near future. Your autodidactic talent is a skill and gift that not many have; furthermore you work with passion and a smile on your lips! It's great to see how much you love this and what an professionalm yet easy going and positive Smiley Face you are!

I wish you all the best and will follow your work!"

- Tuyet My, model

"I've had two shoots with Julia Lion Hair. The hairstyling was fantastic. Julie is obviously very passionate about what she does, and she has fun with it. She is very perfectionistic and the result is always WOW. Besides that, she's a fun person to work with. Crazy, menal, bonkers, ... Always an enthusiastic influence on the atmosphere."

- Dennis Claes, photographer

"Not only is Julia a wizard with hair, she also brings tons of energy and humor to a set. She looks adorable but this lady has massive skills and you can only have respect for that. Hope to work with her again soon, she brought my photoshoot to a whole new level!"

- Sanne van Bergenhenegouwen, photographer
