East - Tabatha Coffey
Favorite beverage: Coffee, without a doubt! I am a huge caffeine freak.
Guilty pleasures: Shopping, sweets and my eyelash extensions.
Great getaway: My favorite city is Rome—the food, the shopping, the history, the architecture, the people, and yes, the coffee!
Fab shoes: At the moment, a Christian Louboutin black and white pony print. My favorite BUS (back-up shoes) are my silver Diesel sneakers.
Fave restaurant: Most Sundays if I’m home you can find me at Angelo’s on Mulberry Street in New York. It’s the best pasta outside of Italy.
Color me: Blondes and reds are my favorite colors. I love the Vero K-Pak Colors 7RC, 6RC and 6FR, used alone or mixed with the gold or natural series. They produce the most vibrant, gorgeous reds—my clients love them. My favorite blonde is HLN, and I tone with Verochrome V9—my personal hair color formula.
Go-to pro products: Must-haves are Joico’s K-Pak, Joishape spray and Distortion. I also love, love, love my C2 flatiron [by Linea Pro].
I’m listening to: Miguel Migs’ new CD, also Aquarian Angel and the new OM CD.
West - Anthony Morrison
Favorite beverage: A chilled Cosmopolitan.
Guilty pleasure: Three-layer chocolate cake from Sweet Lady Jane in Los Angeles. It is decadence at its best!
Great getaway: Brazil. It’s crazy and fun but can be totally relaxing and tranquil.
Good shoes: Prada makes the best shoes for standing in all day. And they look great, which is a plus.
Fave restaurant: Sona on La Cienega in Los Angeles. It is out-of-this-world delicious and has a beautiful decor.
Best color: My favorite color to wear is red.
Go-to pro product: My favorite professional product line is Joico; they seem to have the right product for every type of hair.
I’m listening to: A wide range. I love house music, and I also love ambient, vibe, chill-out music. Let’s throw some classical in there for the heck of it!
My biggest tip: A very wealthy and regular client of mine gave me $1,000 as a Christmas gift. The year before she bought me a Louis Vuitton briefcase. I priced it out and it valued at $2,500. Now, she knew the value of a good hair stylist!
