2 Celebrity Hairstylists and their Secrets to Success
The international market for hair care has ballooned to billions of pounds. These days, it’s not just celebrities who meticulously tend to their hair. Cut, colour and style have the power to downplay and accentuate facial features, give the illusion of youth, and make lasting first impressions.
So in corporate UK, a nice clean cut can get you hired for the job of your dreams. So crucial is hair that the best stylists can command hundreds of pounds for their specific expertise. Here are two celebrity hair gurus and their journeys to fame:
Serge Normant’s Voluminous Waves
Serge Normant moved to New York from his birth country, France, when he was 22. His impressive client list now includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Gisele Bundchen, Ellen Barkin, Blake Lively, Julianne Moore and Christy Turlington. Serge Normant, though, is best known for his work with Julia Roberts.
It was, in fact, Roberts who presented the French stylist with the Hairstylist of the Year Award in 2015 saying that her life and career was transformed by the hands and vision of Normant. Wearable voluminous wavy hair with highlights that perfectly frame the face is what Normant does best.
He now commands $600 for cut and style.
Harry Josh’s Investment in Tech
From Canada, Josh made his way to New York to pursue a career in fashion. Adventurous, confident and energetic, Josh landed a job as casting director for Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs.
He also began cutting and styling hair for would-be models from his tiny apartment until Vogue heard of his special talent and gave his first real gig in 2002.
Since then, he has worked on the style of Amanda Seyfried, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tina Fey and Helena Christensen, Miranda Kerr and Ellen Pompeo. Josh is particularly good at the sultry Victoria Secret wave, which he achieves with the help of great quality hair styling tools.
This young Canadian hair expert is the only stylist who has ventured into the manufacturing of his own line of hair dryers and flat irons.
Considering the steady growth of the hair care industry, it is an excellent time for entrepreneurs and hair enthusiasts to invest in professional hairdressing scissors and salon chairs. The market is also craving the latest innovations in hair products like shampoos, serums, colourants and sprays.
The career of these two A-list stylists is a testament to the fact that hair matters for men and women in different walks of life.
