Coming from a familiar tradition in barbershops, Zé Carlos Taipa initiated his career as a barber in 2003, a business he developed along with his father and godfather, for 5 years. After completing the professional training, Zé Carlos had his first contact with the fashion world at 20 and since then his path has been always connected to that sector, with advertising campaigns, fashion editorials and participation in national and international fashion weeks (Portugal Fashion, Milan Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week), apart from being the official hairdresser of RTP2’s TV show What’s Up-Olhar a Moda.
At the moment, Zé Carlos Taipa divides his time between Oporto and Lisbon as a freelancer hairdresser and is the Creative Stylish of the brand LUPAstyling, launched by Lupabiológica, since January 2017. In addition, he has an open agenda on the salon Deep, in Oporto.
