GETTING TO KNOW STEPHEN KNOLL!!!!

GETTING TO KNOW STEPHEN KNOLL!!!!

Stephen Knoll has a luxurious salon on chic Madison Avenue. His clients are from all over the world! Not only does America’s royalty swear by him (yes, A-list celebs) but people from distant lands fly to him. All for Mr. Stephen Knoll, hair artist extraordinaire! I never understood how a person could motivate to get on a plane to get their hair styled. I don’t even like to drive in traffic on Wilshire Boulevard. Then it happened…

The fashionable Emi from Stephen’s company sent us out some of his Hydro Repair Mist Styling Lotion. Everyone that got the lotion went insane with glee over it. The reviews were absolutely giddy. It didn’t matter if you had frizz, limp, pouf, dry, oily, whatever was in that magic bottle changed peoples hair into American Royalty Hair! The idea of flying to New York to sit in Steven Knoll’s chair did not seem crazy to me. After seeing the results from that Hydro Mist, I may even Greyhound Bus it! If he could find a way to make you lose 5 pounds of the frizz I’d walk!

How did Stephen Knoll become such a wiz with follicles? How does he know secret ingredients for fabulous tresses? How is he so gracious to make time to call BeeBee at Meg’s Make-Up and thank-us for liking his product? How classy is that?

So, enter into the brilliant mind of Steven Knoll ! I’m calling Jet Blue right now!

Name & Hometown:

Stephen Knoll
Milwaukee, WI

I initially started with doing…

I was predestined in becoming a hairstylist. I started doing my mother’s hair when I was six years old. Initially I started by playing around with rollers and back combing my mother’s hair. By the time I was 12-years old, I was coloring, cutting and styling her hair. I also have two sisters so there was plenty of hair to work with. Prom nights were as important to me as it was to them!

But the path I took towards hair styling was driven by…

Supportive and encouraging parents. They embraced and recognized a natural talent and my love for styling and working with hair.

I want all women to know this about themselves…

All women have the ability to make themselves look and feel better. Because hair is such an extension, emotionally and psychologically, to how you feel about yourself, having the proper cut is very important. Finding your own individual look and what works with your hair type is crucial to not only having beautiful hair but also to empowering your self confidence.

My goal is to bring each user of my products …

The reality of having beautiful, modern, healthy and sexy hair everyday.

I believe in all of my products but if I could urge each women to try this one I would have them try…

The one product that I recommend to all my clients is the Hydro Repair Mist because it is a universal product that can be used on any hair type. Whether your hair is coarse, fine, long or short, this product will provide control of your style and bring new life to the hair.

Style influences vary, I would say my style is most like this/ I get my influences from…

My personal style is always clean, simple and forward and it translates into my professional style: ‘classic with a modern edge’ that is tailored and created for the individual client. There are never any look-alikes.

I started my product line because I couldn’t find this…and now, I deliver it with each product in the collection…

I found that I had to use multiple products just to achieve one thing: hair that is healthy, shiny, full of body and texture, but only to end up with hair that felt dirty and overloaded with products. My products are all two in one, styling and conditioning. Each styling product is created for a specific hair type making it very easy to create your own individual style while allowing you to use products that are actually good for your hair.

When I see a woman make this mistake I cringe…

When I see a woman putting the straps of her handbag on her shoulder and pulling her hair from underneath. That single pull not only damages but can actually break the hair.

My products care about the way you look unlike anyone else’s because…

All my products are two in one: Styling and Treatment. My products make it very easy to blow dry and style – the end result is simply the most beautiful, healthy, sexy hair you’ve ever had.

If I were at a bar I’d order this…

Most often water but on occasion, Corazon Tequila margaritas on the rocks with salt.

True or False: I will tell you when there is spinach between your teeth.
Yes, I would.
