1-2-1 with Mikey Kardashian
We recently had the pleasure of chatting with celebrity hairstylist Mikey Kardashian. Read on to know more about this talented stylist!
Who are you?
My name is Mikey Kardashian and I'm a freelance session hair stylist and hair extensions specialist. I work with lots of different clients of mine including lots of British celebrities on various projects they happen to be working on at the time.
I also try and keep my twitter followers up to date with what I'm doing with my clients on a daily basis… Follow me at @MKardashian to check in and see what I'm up to.
Which hairstyle gives you the most buzz to create?
I love big, sexy, glamorous hair. The bigger the better for me!
Anything with lots of body and bounce, soft waves with tons of volume.
Do you have any memorable moment / client or event?
The shoot I did with Katie Price for OK! Magazine last August was a memorable one as I only found out about the job two days before I was due to fly out to Marbella for the shoot. It also happened that the shoot was taking place over my birthday, and I had to postpone the big birthday party I'd planned.
Kate and the entire team made it memorable though and we all had a big birthday lunch for me at Kate's villa and really made it one to remember.
What’s your top tip for a Summer 2012 hair?
For me S/S 2012 hair is all about 'the morning after the night before' hair. That big bouncy blow-dry that that you had done for last night, thrown up in a big gorgeous high ponytail.
What’s your favourite Cloud Nine tool and why?
Wow, that's a hard one… I LOVE my 'The O' rollers for root lift and bounce, but I couldn't live without my Cloud Nine Wand. They are both must haves for any hair kit.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I take inspiration from magazines, fashion shows, and my friends that work in the hair industry. One of my best friends is TOWIE's Lauren Pope and I've been doing Lauren's hair for years now, every now and again we decide to change things up a little and spend hours browsing online looking for inspiration which we sometimes find in the most random places.
Who are some of your celebrity clients?
I hate name dropping my clients, I hate the whole 'celebrity hairdresser' association, but I'm lucky enough to work with names such as Katie Price, Lauren Pope, Lauren Goodger, Grace Woodward, Lisa Snowdon and Katie Piper quite often, all of which I now class as good friends of mine.
What’s your best kept secret or favourite product?
My favourite product that is never out of my kit is 'Diamond Dust' by James Foward for Maison d'Anu. I couldn't imagine styling my hair without it, and that goes for my clients too - we're all addicted to it now!
Which celeb would you love to style and why?
I think that has to be Victoria Beckham… I love what she's doing with her hair right now, the effortless waves, the baggy braid.. I'd LOVE to work with her as I love the way she can pull ANY look off with ease when it comes to her hair. Victoria is the kind of girl that never has a day off when it comes to looking stylish.
