WTF is lil’ off the top

who are we and what do we do?

Well we are still trying to figure that out ourselves. what we do know is that we dig hair, we love to share and we fancy doing all of this with a great big fuckin’ smile on our dials. Lil’ Off The Top (LOTT) is education, it’s lifestyle, it’s culture.

You will learn something, you will take it with you and you will use it. We are trying to bridge the gap between industry and consumer. We see hair as the next big thing, most of you have it, you all play with it, cut it, style it, paint it, pull it, shave it. it’s a part of your every day and most of the time you don’t even realise it. all we want you to do is to “LOVE IT”!!

kt

“To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift.”

tom

Don’t be fooled by this heart throb, he sure can cut a rug (and not just on the dancefloor). See for yourself...

ryan

This lad is always up for a laugh and lives life to the fullest. Ryan’s strong points are the fundamentals of cutting, working with short hair and rocking the sh*t out of men’s hair. If you’re interested in sharp lines, clean sections and the foundations, this geeza’s your man!

sam

Sam, the crazy creative. A free spirit chick from somewhere between Aus and the U.K. With some serious titles to her name, freestyle anything is what she loves. She knows the basic inside out, but she lives to blur those lines and create magic with her scissors and random sh*t she collects in her tool box.

Nathan is the ultimate rule breaker. In life. With hair, too. He loves shape, structure, classic hair and putting his rock’n’roll/ADD twist on everything he does. When he’s not at a gig or doing one of another thousand things, he’s a passionate lover... of music, travel, hair, his son and daughter, and love itself. (calm your ovaries ladies, he is taken.)
