Celebrity Stylist


Barber moves with Brian “Doc” Bull and celeb client Jason Derulo.

Brian “Doc” Bull

How does music star Jason Derulo style his super-sharp mane? Brian “Doc” Bull, a celebrity barber and owner of DK’s Barbers and Stylists in Tarzana, CA, is the man behind the celebrity’s grooming game. Bull has been styling the Talk Dirty singer since the start of his career. SBH caught up with the master barber to get the deets on how he keeps the singer’s style so fresh.

MEETING JASON: “A friend of mine said, ‘I want you to go cut this kid. He’s young, he’s not out yet, but he’s going to be big. You have to go catch him, it’s a great opportunity to get on the ground level of somebody who is going to be big.”

THE CUT: “It’s a process. We have to determine what length the sides are going to be, then Jason adds designs and then I style what he wants. Everything is based on what he wants and at the same time, I get to have my creativity, too—to put my initial on it. He gives me that space, so it’s been a pleasure working with him.”

DESIGN TOOLS: “I don’t use my razor on designs. It’s a little too dangerous. I use an outliner and a blade trimmer…I use it to do the designs.”

JOB PERKS: “My favorite part of the job is meeting influential celebrities, whether they are old school, new school or people from different places in their career. Being around the business is a great learning experience.”

Grooming game in the chair!
