HeadHackers: Express, Create and Share.
A movement that was born breaking the established codes through creative freedom, purity and independence.
HeadHackers, the documentary, is the story of three young guys with a dream, to transform their world through hairdressing.
A seed that was born in Madrid as a result of their friendship and an illusion grew until they saw that their work and way of seeing life influenced hairdressers and not hairdressers, all over the world. (The HeadHackers)
Where the important thing is not what they create, it is what they have generated for an industry that moves millions of illusions in a sector so passionate and transforming of emotions in society such as hairdressing. The quarantine has just shown us how important hairdressers are in the state of mind of society.
