Here’s my client Thomas Dekker at the premiere of the new HBO Original Movie Cinema Verite with hair cut and color by me. We did this just a couple of hours before the pictures were taken.
Cinema Verite tells the story of the Loud family’s rise to fame in the early 1970’s. Thomas plays the family’s oldest son Lance Loud who became known as a gay icon for having his eccentric lifestyle revealed on the family’s documentary series “An American Life.”
Still have to catch it on HBO, also starring Diane Lane who I love!
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, 1964
Yahoo interview with Tracey and me.
Here I am blowdrying Alessandra Ambrosio’s hair on Friday after she had her first color from Tracey Cunningham.
Tracey can be credited with starting the ombre hair color craze. Tracey’s color on Allesandra’s fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldrige inspired this color trend, and it’s a color that could very well transcend the trend and stick around. Ombre color is ideal for the girl that doesn’t want to be a slave to her hair but wants something that pops. If your colorist can match your natural base, this color requires very little to no maintenance. It’s summer year-round!
In late November I had the surprise and pleasure of going to Maui, Hawaii to work with Peter Butler for the legendary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The agency called me Tuesday morning and I was on a plane to Maui by Tuesday night.
After arriving to the hotel by midnight, I found out about my 3AM call time and took a power nap to rest up for the first day of shooting. This trip was intense; with early call-times (long before sunrise) and long, laborious days. If you think modeling is easy, this trip would make you think twice. These girls are giving you swimsuit realness after climbing up a cliff and through a freezing riverbed on like 3 hours of sleep!
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit has been publishing it’s annual issue since its debut on January 20, 1964. Nearly every woman we’ve come to know as a Supermodel has graced the covers or pages of SI Swimsuit: Cheryl Tiegs, Christie Brinkley, Paulina Porizkova, Petra Nemacova, Rebecca Romijn, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Kathy Ireland, Elle Macpherson, Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Niki Taylor, Angie Everheart and Naomi Campbell.
Don’t forget Peter Butler is legendary in his own right. He has had hair on the cover of something like 10 or 11 Swimsuit issues. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Peter a few times since our trip together in November and he is a total inspiration! I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet Peter and the entire SI crew.
Above I’ve posted this year’s cover featuring the very sexy Irina Shayk. Also are a few personal photos from the shoot.
Look at Rihanna on the cover of this month’s Vogue with hair by Oribe. Amazing! I worked with Oribe recently and he was completely gracious, kind and a total hair genius.
What I really want to talk about is my new favorite product, Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray. Available in Los Angeles exclusively at Barneys or Neiman Marcus. $39
Dry Texturizing Spray can be used on freshly styled hair for body and insane texture or on days-old hair to absorb oils and refresh your style for that one last night. I like this product because of its versatility; it functions as a texturizer and as a dry shampoo. Unlike hairspray, it’s not sticky and unlike most dry shampoo, it is not wet or chalky. And the fragrance is to-die-for.
Check it out.
Here’s a feature from last months Harper’s Bazaar UK featuring Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics at home with his wife Anoushka Fisz, with hair by me.
Look for Anoushka’s photography books and check out the new Stevie Nicks album with co-writing and co-production by Dave Stewart!
No better way to start this Tumblr than with a feature from this month’s Angeleno Magazine all about LA interior designers at home in their own spaces.
With hair by me, here is one of my most favorite clients, Kristen Buckingham of Kristen Buckingham Interiors. She’s shown relaxing in the home she shares with her husband Lindsey Buckingham and their three kids in Brentwood.
Have a peek at Kristen’s website for more pics of her amazing home! Also look for Lindsey Buckingham featured on the new album by Stevie Nicks.
I love the Buckinghams! ♥
