Creative Director

With more than a decade of experience producing hair accessories and developing her brand, Fernanda Guimarães, creative director of CAN CAN, works to bring back ancestral traditions through the use of manual creative techniques.

Today, her designs and products can be found online and in two brick-and-mortar stores in São Paulo and Trancoso, Brazil. According to Fernanda, her accessories are made to “place, protect, imagine, and remember the sacred symbolism of embellishment for moments that leave a mark on one’s soul”.
