Yusuke Ukai began his career in hair training as a hairdresser in Tokyo, Japan. After eight years honing and developing his skills Yusuke took the decision to move to London to pursue a career in the creative industry here and was quickly taken on by an East London.
It wasn’t long before Yusuke began to look outside of the salon for other opportunities to work with hair and began assisting Tomo Jidai, working with him on the shows across Europe and in New York. After witnessing the limitless possibilities for a session hair stylist and the potential to use hair as a form of expression and way to be creative Yusuke started testing with friends that were photographer and stylists getting small stories placed in publications such as i-D and pop.
The Summer of 2011 saw Yusuke join Tron management in Tokyo and move to Tokyo. Dictated by a hunger for creativity Yusukei regularly shots for magazines with commercial clients including UNIQLO, Berburly and ArmarniEX.
