Team - AMY FARID | STYLIST
Inspiration: People, the way they dress, the way they do their hair and makeup. In NYC, the subway is a cornucopia of the multi-cultural, young and old, locals, implants, and immigrants. I like seeing people in that environment. They’re on their way to work, school or just to hang out with friends. Hairstylists inspire me as well. Art is also a very important part of life. Frida Kahlo, Gustav Klimt, Willem de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Salvador Dali, David Yawman, Georgia O'Keefe and Egon Schiele are a few favorites. Movies are very inspirational, too. I enjoy recreating a character for cinematic, still pictures. I find the following directors masters of the film game: Pedro Almodovar, David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch, Lars Von Trier, Stanley Kubrick, and Wes Anderson. They provide us with compelling characters with great hair!
Favorite Quote: "He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star." -William Blake
Dream Client: I would love to have done Frida Kahlo's hair. More than actually do her hair, I would have enjoyed watching her do her own hair. She had really long hair and would do these beautiful braids and tie them up on top of her head. Frida would put flowers in her hair, too, which is one of my favorite things.
