Hopefully you will get a few good tips that you can implement into your hair routine.
Mitchell: Well, crazy usually:) It is a busy time of year. I have been doing interviews, identifying and talking about trends and doing shoots! Which celebrity’s hair have you styled? And of them all who is your favorite to work with and why? Mitchell: Too many:) But, my favorite male celeb to style is Ewan McGregor – he is professional, humble and just a great human being! As well as Al Pachino , he’s a blast! And I love to work with Sean Penn very much..
I heard you were the hairstylist for Ben Stiller in Tropic Thunder, that movie was hilarious… how was it styling for such a funny guy? Any good stories from days on the set?
Mitchell: I loved watching the whole gang work together! I will say that shooting in Kaui for 4 months was very difficult in terms of weather relating to hair. I would have LOVED it if the Gillette styling products were out then because they last long and cover the bases for so many different types of hair, in so many different climates, ie: humid, beach, hot, cold:)
It’s award season for the stars and it’ll soon be prom season for alot of young guys, what styles do you recommend for black-tie/special events… What are popular styles for the stars on the red carpet?
Mitchell: Well, I really have been seeing a modern 40’s look – shorter on the sides with a bit of tousled length on top like Robert Downy Jr., Zack Efron, and Josh Brolin. The length can be locked into place (perfect for Prom) by using a gel (like Gillette Power Gel ) on towel dried hair with a dash of spray to quicken the dry time. Then keep your hands out of it:)
African-American hair (more curly and textured textured): Keep a good conditioner around and stay away from oily products.
Asian hair (thick hair): Use a silicone type product to keep it shiny and smooth (and Gillette Sculpting paste to add texture! )
General curly/wavy hair: Gillette Mess Constructor to keeps it in place, but with a matte finish. Make sure you use a good conditioner often too!
