Stylist of the Month – Yasmine

  • What inspired you to start in the hair industry, and what keeps you inspired today?

“I’ve always had a passion for fashion, make-up, art and photography. That’s what led me to go into hair. That is still where I get my inspiration and what keeps me going. I like transforming people! I feel like I’m sculpting when I’m cutting hair.”


  • You’ve been a stylist across three different states. What have been some of your biggest achievements over your career?

“My biggest achievements were working at Vidal Sassoon as a Creative Director and traveling all around the globe.”


  • One of your specialties is curly hair. What is your number one advice for curly haired girls and curly haired guys?

“My number one advice for curly hair is ‘Don’t brush your curls, it will turn into a frizz ball’. “


  • How often should girls with curly hair be getting Haircuts/Trims to maintain their curly hair looking its best?

“Curly hair has less moisture, it tends to be a bit dry, especially when it’s constantly blow dried. I recommend every six to eight weeks for a trim to keep the split ends off and maintaining the shape.”


  • (Photo : Getty/JamieMcCarthy)What guy in the entertainment industry is rocking his naturally curly hair the best right now?

“Justin Timberlake is always rocking it. and Lenny Kravitz.”


    • What are your go-to products in the salon right now?

“My favorite go-to product recently is the Crème for Style by Oribe.”


    • Hair trends come and go with each season and most make a return at some point. What’s been your favorite hair trend from the past and what do you think is the next big thing?

“The forecast trends are classic bob shapes with pastel colors. Braids, fringe and disconnected lengths are not going away. Loose waves, curls and natural afros. Center parts and very low side parts. Short shapes with very long fringe.

Men are also getting more and more into real haircuts / styles with fades and side parts.

Danny & Aubrey Get Married

By admin

In case you missed it (and we don’t know how you could), Danny & Aubrey of Studio DNA got married in a big way: on top of a rose parade float. It was grand, it was glorious and it was controversial.


“We were not deluded into thinking that the Supreme Court’s ruling would come with general acceptance. We knew there would be controversy. But we also know that people fear what they don’t know, so we saw this as an opportunity for people to see that love is love. There are no differences.”


Here are a few links to some video and articles of the big day. Enjoy!
