70 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | NOVEMBER 2018 They're the faces behind the faces we all know. They're the artists who work tirelessly to make stars sparkle. For every celebrity with hair that's intricately coiffed, lopped off in a funky chop, or dyed today's hottest hue, there's a stylist to thank for making the magic happen. We shine the spotlight on these stylists to the stars. CAREER START I was obsessed with Natalie Imbruglia's short hair in her "Torn" music video when I was a teenager. No one could give me the cut I wanted, so I bought a pack of razors and shaved my own hair. Soon I was doing all of my friends' hair, too. SUCCESS SECRET Be humble, work hard and don't compete with others— collaborate instead. Respect the non- disclosure agreements you sign. CELEB CLIENTS Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian TYPICAL DAY It never looks the same, but usually I start at the offi ce, followed by meetings with my OUAI team, then running to a client's house and ending the day with my husband. LOOK I LOVE Kendall Jenner's look at this year's Cannes Film Festival was especially memorable. TIP FOR NEWBIES Don't expect success overnight. I started as a receptionist and assisted for years. There will always be struggles along the way. CAREER START I used to draw all the time thinking I'd become a designer, but when I learned I'd have to take classes that didn't interest me—like textiles—I switched to beauty school and loved it. SUCCESS SECRET Be trustworthy, on time and have fun. CELEB CLIENTS Kristin Cavallari, Lucy Hale, Ashley Tisdale TYPICAL DAY I can't start any day without Starbucks. I know which Starbucks opens the earliest in so many cities! LOOK I LOVE When Kristin Cavallari hosted the red carpet pre-show for E!, we got to do the Emmys, Grammys and Oscars. It was so fun because each look was glam and different. TIP FOR NEWBIES Don't talk sh*t. CAREER START I'm a third- generation stylist; my mother and grandmother were hairdressers before me. I originally wanted to work my way through fashion school by doing hair, but once I started improving and going to trade shows, I realized this was my true calling. SUCCESS SECRET Take classes and practice skills continuously so that you're ready when the opportunities arise. CELEB CLIENTS Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Zendaya TYPICAL DAY I might be in the salon, doing a photo shoot, shooting a fi lm or a commercial. It always starts with a client consultation, photographer or director. LOOK I LOVE Beyoncé's "Lemonade" album. It brought textured hair back into play in a fresh way. TIP FOR NEWBIES Don't think you know it all. Find a mentor, learn from everyone and pursue ongoing education. After 30 years in the business, I still pick up tips from my assistants.
