Thursday, August 2, 2012 Nasty Guys: Daniel Moon + Ramsell Martinez
Daniel and Ramsell first bonded over pizza while cutting 20 wigs to make KeSha’s dancers look like Kiefer Sutherland from The Lost Boys for the 2010 VMAs. She was performing as a final act and the duo was paired up to style hair for her 15 dancers. Needless to say, it was one crazy night and they’ve since became great friends, collaborators, and our go-to hair guys.
Even though Daniel’s a master of rainbow-fueled color and Ramsell has a less-is-more philosophy when it comes to hair, there’s no denying that they’re a dream team and the proof is in the pictures. Here’s a taste of what they’re up to when they’re not busy working their magic in our studio, from Daniel’s next-level dye jobs at Andy Lecompte Salon to Ramsell‘s styling for the likes of Dazed And Confused and Purple Magazine.
And now, tips from the pros:
Ramsell - “Finding a balance in what you’re comfortable with and what actually works for you is most important. If you have curly hair – enhance it. If you have straight hair – pin it with some bobby pins or just spray it with water. Keep it easy and set your own trend.”
Daniel - “I specialize in color that makes you feel. I pull my inspiration from people who see life in a colorful way. Don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun. Look at your hair as a blank canvas!”
Wednesday, July 18, 2012 Nasty Guys: Leonardo DiCaprio
When it comes to the topic of ’90s teen heartthrobs, there is no denying that our ultimate will forever be Leo. With bad boy good looks and legit acting chops, he totally stole our hearts in cult classics like This Boy’s Life, The Basketball Diaries, and Romeo + Juliet (seriously, can we talk about that underwater scene with Claire Danes?). Over a decade and a few Oscar nominations later, we still find ourselves swooning over his long blonde locks and, ugh, those lips. Leo, we’ll always love you…
Thursday, May 17, 2012 Nasty Guys: River Phoenix
While eating birthday cupcakes for breakfast this morning, talk naturally turned to our biggest childhood crushes. The one babe we could all agree upon was River Phoenix. Unlike many of the faces that graced Teen Beat back in the day (ahem, JTT), he was an award-winning actor, musician, and activist – not to mention, the eternal boy of our dreams.
Wednesday, May 9, 2012 Nasty Guys: Curtis Kulig, The ‘Love Me’ Dude
We’re sure you’ve seen LOVE ME scribbled all over the streets of NYC and LA, or maybe just your Tumblr feed. In case you’re curious about the mastermind behind the sweet request, we have the answer.
Wednesday, April 18, 2012 Film: Sean Penn
Sean Penn has always been a babe. From ’80s cult film Fast Times At Ridgemont High to revolutionary Milk and tons of other movies, he not only proves to be an amazingly talented actor, but also a great producer, writer and director. Seriously, we’re not sure there’s anything he can’t do. And we can’t help but love that he’s still a borderline bad boy with an incredible track record of broken hearts, including Madonna, Scarlett Johansson and his ex-wife Robin Wright. Sean, we’ll always have a crush on you…
