Vlad has done something not too many hair stylists can say that they’ve done. Fed up by chemicals and toxins and phalates, he developed his own brand of Shampoo, called Nice Feelers, which if you look very closely at the small print on the label, claims to be “Powered by Alien Technology.”
Much more visible on the bottle of Nice Feelers are custom labels, featuring artwork by a rotating selection of participating Flat Iron Artists like Florian Retkowski of Studio 310, whose ceramic works of aliens Vlad has photographed on numerous occasions. Another label maker is June Hankins, whom Vlad described as the ‘Ivan Albright‘ of dog portraiture, pictured.
