Benjamin Mohapi is a British born hairstylist who began his career as a hairstylist in London, working for John Frieda, Nicky Clarke and Daniel Galvin before moving into the world of session styling.
By the age of 22 Mohapi had left the salon and was spending all his time on set as a session stylist where he quickly established himself in the fashion and entertainment industries. Having traveled the world extensively working on a variety of exciting, artistic, and creative projects his resume had grown to include photographers Rankin, David LaChapelle, and the late Herb Ritts.
He also worked on editorial and fashion projects for Vogue, ID, Nylon, GQ, Marie Claire, and many more. All of these experiences went into creating a London based hair, beauty, and styling agency which Mohapi founded in 2012 and had in operation for almost 10 years. In 2013 he was joined by colorist Negin Zand.
His background as a session stylist has heavily influenced his approach to BENJAMIN, his eponymous salon, from the brand’s artistic aesthetic down to the hairstylists he employs. For this reason, many of the hairstylists he puts to work are also involved in session work, creating looks for editorials, campaigns and films.
Garnering a phenomenal amount of online and print credit from a variety of celebrity clientele and style influencers the BENJAMIN salon has received accolades from outlets such as Vanity Fair, Allure, Vogue, Refinery 29, Daily Candy, and The Huffington Post.
