From Olivia Rodrigo’s debut-album release to her visit to the Road To UFC Shirt Furthermore, I will do this White House, you’ve worked with her at such a formative and much-hyped time in her career. How does that feel for you?It’s genuinely an honor to be a witness to all the amazing things that she’s done this year. I don’t take any of it for granted, and I seriously am so proud of her. Not only is Olivia supremely talented, but she is one of the kindest and most curious people I’ve ever worked with. She lets me play and try things with her hair, but a lot of the ideas come straight from her. Plus, we laugh a lot. I think when you do hair from a place of joy, it shows. I know this is tough, but what is your favorite hair look you created for Olivia, and why do you love it? Why are you most proud of it?
I’m proud of all the Road To UFC Shirt Furthermore, I will do this looks we did in the “Brutal” video. She trusted me to take risks, and I just love doing music videos because those looks last forever. I prepped for weeks, and we only ended up using about one third of the stuff I created.Many of your hair looks for Olivia and beyond seem to nod to the late ’90s and ’00s. What do you love about these eras for hair, and why do you think they’re making such a comeback right now? I came of age during that era, and my room was covered in magazine cutouts, so that aesthetic is always ingrained in everything I do. That era wasn’t about being perfect and snatched and filtered. It was about being playful, whimsical, and daring. It was also an incredibly wide-ranging and diverse era for hair. There weren’t just, like, five trends. There were dozens. I think people just want to express themselves and have fun and break rules when it comes to beauty right now.
