Raised in Switzerland, Kuemin found travelling the world at an early age altered his reality. Being exposed to different cultures and later immersing himself in underground dress theme techno parties, fueled his passion and imagination for fantasy worlds.
Kuemin was introduced to hairdressing by the recommendation of a friend. He began his journey under the guidance of Kuhn Intercoiffure, which at the time was the best Salon and hair academy in Switzerland. Never satisfied and hungry for more, Kuemin achieved special training in his 2nd year to become an assistant trainer. Travelling regularly through Europe as an educator and mentor, it opened his eyes to the possibilities in the profession. His strive for excellence and pushing boundaries won him 8 awards in 3 years. Twice winning Swiss hairdresser of the year and youngest hairdresser to be welcomed to the global hall of fame.
Kuemin's early interest in wigs influenced his way of working and gave him a platform that helped break the conventional limitations of hair. Wanting to explore the power of wigs and give something back to the community - Kuemin started to work in his free time for a charity organisation that cut wigs for cancer and alopecia patients.
It was through this he was announced as Art Director of Haar Vital in 2012. Haar Vital is one of the leading medical wig companies around the globe. His relationship with Haar Vital has led to Kuemin designing Wigs for the fashion and film industries which are now being used by the top major players in the profession.
In 2015 Kuemin moved to London. His unique perspective and drive led him to work as a 1st assistant for world-renowned hairstylist - Eugene Souleiman. During the 3 years in this position, Kuemin had the opportunity to work closely alongside Eugene for some of the most forward-thinking and innovative fashion designers of our lifetime. John Galliano, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, Thom Browne, Jil Sander, Olivier Theyskens, Stella McCartney among many others.
Kuemin's cultural influences, urge to create characters and fantasy worlds are the driving force behind his work. His training, strive for excellence and vision are what gives him his unique perspective and make him a leader in his profession.
