Eduardo Nunes, @dununesoficial
Born from the most renowned hairstylist family in the Brazilian beauty market, Du Nunes had contact with the universe of beauty from an early age when, as a child, he spent his days at his great-grandfather’s barbershop. At age 13, he began working with his uncle, Jackson Nunes, at Studio W (the nation’s most elite salon). Four years later he was named the best assistant. The recognition was worth an invitation from his great uncle, Wanderley Nunes, to be a partner of Studio W in the city of Curitiba. After only two years of existence, the salon was elected one of the 15 best in the world and Eduardo emerged as one of the best hairdressers in Brazil. Currently, he serves around 300 clients per month, as well as delivering various courses and workshops around the world by Truss. His work ranges from the coldest blonde to the warmest tones, always enhancing the beauty of his customers naturally and of course the brunettes and redheads also look gorgeous in the hands of Du!

My favorite product for my clients is Deluxe Prime! I believe that the main reason why my work is different from the others is that I focus on maintaining the integrity of hair and specializing in colors and high contrasts.”
