“Circus troupes were the original nomads,” said Beenders. “They travelled from town to town and worked extremely hard, just like us. The members of my team are all nomads who come from different parts of the world, and all our lives are like a circus. But we’re here because we love to create things, and that’s what my evening performance is all about—creating prestige hair that inspires others to creativity and technical excellence.”
