CAREER START I played a lot of sports growing up, and braided everyone's hair on game days. When my parents wanted me to get my fi rst job, I looked up every local hair salon to get my foot in the door. SUCCESS SECRET It can be challenging working as a freelance stylist since you don't get many days off. But the more you say "yes," the more opportunities arise. CELEB CLIENTS Emily Blunt, Camila Cabello, Lea Michele, Reese Witherspoon TYPICAL DAY I take my kids to school, then head straight to the offi ce to develop new product formulas with my Beachwaver Co. team. Sometimes I fl y to New York to style a client. I stay at The Williamsburg Hotel and create content while there. LOOK I LOVE The Dutch fi shtail I did for Reese Witherspoon. It can be worn on any occasion, then taken down the next day for gorgeous waves. TIP FOR NEWBIES Keep a positive outlook and never take "no" for an answer. CAREER START I idolized my older sister, Rosemary, as a child. She had a choppy '80s Madonna haircut, drove a white Mustang, and worked as a hairdresser. When I was 10 years old, I got a salon job over spring break. I made $100 and bought my fi rst pair of Doc Martens—I was hooked. SUCCESS SECRET Set out to prove yourself every time you start a project. I have more hunger, thirst and energy for this business than I did at the beginning, and I give my soul to every client. CELEB CLIENTS Miley Cyrus, Fergie, Megan Fox, Salma Hayek, Madonna, Demi Moore TYPICAL DAY Today I'm prepping to fl y to London for Madonna. We've worked together for 15 years. LOOK I LOVE I turned Madonna into a super vixen for her "Girl Gone Wild" video; it's still one of my proudest creations. TIP FOR NEWBIES There's no fast track to success. Take the stairs, never the elevator, or you run the risk of getting stuck. CAREER START My father worked in the fi lm industry, so growing up I was surrounded by artists who made movie stars look glamorous. I trained in London, then moved to Los Angeles in the early '90s. I got my fi rst break in color—and all my other breaks—because I worked hard and others took a chance on me, so now I do the same for young stylists. SUCCESS SECRET Have an unwavering belief in your ability and a genuine love of beauty. CELEB CLIENTS Emily Arlook, Tracee Ellis Ross, Mena Suvari TYPICAL DAY Always a whirlwind that involves meeting with my offi ce team, answering requests, working on my Roil beauty line, and taking care of a VIP client at my Beverly Hills, California, salon. LOOK I LOVE I used gold and honey brown for Emily Arlook's color on her TV show, "Grown-ish." I love how it plays up her gorgeous eyes and warm skin tone. TIP FOR NEWBIES Don't think you know it all.
