Stylist to the stars Anthony Cherry puts his “cherry on top” touch to every hairstyle he creates. Here, he discusses his journey as a celebrity hairstylist…
GLAMOUR GALORE: “Los Angeles is really all about glamorous hair, and that’s how I made a name for myself in Hollywood. Glamour hair is anything that’s very, very sexy and loose, and anything with long tresses and amazing layers.”
BIG BREAK: Cherry’s break into celebrity styling came when he was asked to style hair on the fourth season of Wild ‘N Out. “From there, it’s been a snowball effect, working with music stars Missy Elliot, Keyshia Cole, Ciara and Jill Scott.”
ADVICE TO ASPIRING STYLISTS: “Look, learn, listen and travel. Go to different markets, become diverse in styling and challenge yourself to work with other ethnicities to become a well-rounded individual. Work on your speed, perfect your craft and always ask questions.”
