Richard Marin: What It’s Like To Be A Celebrity Stylist

by Remington Ready December 17, 2014


Hair, camera, action! We sat down with celebrity stylist Richard Marin to get the inside scoop on some of the fabulous hairstyles he’s created for world-famous actresses. His remarkable work has graced the pages of some of the most elite fashion magazines, including Vogue, Allure and Vanity Fair. In this exclusive interview he shares his favorite part of the job, styling tips, and some of the hot trending hairstyles! 

 

 

What is the best part about being a celebrity hairstylist?

 

"The best part of my job is the access I have to the most creative people in their fields from fashion designers to wardrobe stylists who start the fashion trends. From here I see what my peers are doing and how we relate hair trends to salon clients to celebrities on the red carpet. It's fun to see what trends really catch on and become every day hairstyles that everyone wants to emulate."

 

 

What is the difference between styling hair for television and movies versus everyday wear?

 

"With TV or movies you're working with a variety of elements from lighting, what a scene calls for, or a director and actress wishes. Hair usually expands on screen so it's a balance of getting the hair right for the character and what is right for each particular scenario. In real life it's all about getting it right for YOU! In any case, I can't do my job correctly if I don't have the right products, a good haircut and most importantly the right tools. I've become very reliant on my Remington T|Studio Silk products because they just make the hair look and feel shiny, soft and beautiful. That’s where I start and hopefully maintain that in working with a client at the salon or an actress in a movie or on the red carpet."  

 

In your mind, what has been the best red-carpet runway hairstyle?

 

"What works on the runway necessarily doesn't transfer to the red carpet so what I always look at is what is big on the runway and how will I translate the look on a celebrity for the red carpet to make them look the best they possibly can. I take into consideration who the person I'm working with is and what hairstyle will be best them, the event they are going to and the dress they are wearing for the red carpet." 

 

 

What is your favorite runway look and how do you create it?

 

"I'm really liking all of the new layered Bob's that are happening for the season, These looks all have great texture. Begin by adding a texturizing spray into your dry hair or a thermal active spray that will work with your T|Studio Silk Slim Conical wrap and go wand. I like the Remington T|Studio 1/2 inch to 1 inch conical iron to achieve the best texture. Wrap your hair around the large portion of the conical iron, and the next section of hair use the smaller section of the conical iron. What this does is it creates a variation of texture throughout your hairstyle. Once you've completely wrapped all of your hair in various textures, shake, shake, shake your hair and you're ready to go! Have a lot of fun with this look. The messier and the more texture, the better!"                                      

                         

Whose hair style is trending the most in Hollywood?

 

"Whoever does the most dramatic change! Trending hair comes in all forms. Everyone has an opinion about hair, whether they love it or hate it, but this past year we really owe all the short hair resurgence to Miley Cyrus. It shot a whole new energy in cropping the hair short from the model Coco Rocha to the Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco. Also, last few seasons "BOB" trend will now be the "Shaggy Layered Lob (long bob)" for spring 2015."

The Best Kept Secret In Hair Removal

by Remington Ready September 8, 2014

 

Women around the world have ditched shaving for the quick and easy way to long-lasting smooth skin.

 

So what is the best kept secret in hair removal?

 

It’s an electric tweezing system known as epilation, and you’ll be glad you found it.


With an epilator, you don’t have to worry about constant touch-ups or irritated skin. The simple handheld device uses 40 rotating tweezers to pull hair out from the root, leaving behind soft, touchable skin for up to six weeks!


And it only gets easier the more you use it. Once hair eventually grows back, it comes in softer and finer than before so future treatments are quicker and more enjoyable.


The best part is, you can use the Remington rechargeable epilator in or out of the shower. Warm water can help soften hair and open up the skin’s pores for easier removal. Plus, the pivoting head adjusts to all the contours of your body for less hassle and quicker results.  

 
It’s time to find out why epilation is the #1 method for hair removal in Europe.
