Harry Josh


Harry Josh knew by the age of 15 that he wanted to be in the world of fashion. In pursuit of that dream, he set out from his native Vancouver, Canada for New York City, where he quickly landed a position as a casting director for Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. Throughout the decade that he worked as a casting director, Harry not only forged close relationships with models and fashion insiders thanks to his energetic personality, but also began acquiring hair clients within the industry when models requested his services. His unique process of coloring and skilled hand at cutting encouraged many of the top models as well as industry professionals to venture to his walk-up apartment for styling sessions. Harry cut and colored out of his home for lack of another place to do it, and word of mouth traveled all the way to Vogue—who gave him his big break in 2002. 

Today, Harry is one of the most sought-after editorial stylists in the world. His work has graced the pages of Harper's Bazaar, Numero, British Vogue, GQ, Allure, Teen Vogue and V Magazine among many other fashion publications, and he has lent his styling prowess to brands like Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren and Maybelline for their advertising campaigns. What's more, he has touched the heads of a wide range of A-list celebrities and supermodels, including Gisele Bundchen, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Garner, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tina Fey, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Christy Turlington and Miranda Kerr.
