While studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Chuck Amos quickly got noticed for his mane styling skills. The star stylist who has worked with beauties such as Jordin Sparks and Tyra Banks, gives us a glimpse into his world…
ON FINDING HIS CALLING: “When I realized there was a market for myself as a full-time, freelance hairstylist, I knew that’s all I wanted to do. I’m into hair, but I’m more into extensions. I used to do magic tricks when I was a kid, and I’ve always loved special effects. Extensions are the ‘magic tricks’ of my passion—hair!”
HIS ADVICE TO BUDDING STYLIST: “Don’t be afraid to show people your portfolio.”
ON WORKING WITH CELEBS: “When I started working with celebrities I realized how real they were and how close they were to me in terms of their career aspirations.”
