Rising star Cori Bardo, member of the new Sebastian Professional Design Team, lives the look, along with her rock and indy film clients.
My style: Modern, but not too trendy. Vintage classic.
My inspirations: People, magazines, fashion and music.
Some of my clients: Juliette Lewis, Corrine Bailey Ray, Eva Mendes, Emma Roberts, Trent Resner from Nine Inch Nails and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
My favorite designers: Alexander McQueen, a jewelry line called “Made Her Think” and my sister’s line, Rose. I also really love vintage pieces.
Best places to shop: Presse, Opening Ceremony and Maxfields in West Hollywood. And a boutique called Oou in Los Feliz.
My tattoos: Between the ages of 14 and 18 I got a bunch of dumb tattoos in my punk rock phase. When I was 19 I decided to get better work done to cover them up, so now I have a dagger, a peacock and a dragon. They are all beautiful, but if I had to do it over again I wouldn’t have gotten any tattoos in the first place.
My work now: Sebastian is a very cutting-edge and cool brand, but still maintains classic style, like me. I’m always trying to change up my look and I feel that Sebastian is all about reinvention, so it’s a perfect fit. My first love is editorial work, and that is the image they are going for now.
My favorite shoots: Working with legendary photographer Deborah Turbeville in Paris. More recently, the Gallery shoot that I did with other Sebastian artists. It was amazing to be working with so many young, talented hairdressers. I’m used to being the sole hairdresser on set, so it was nice to be on set with and inspired by other hairdressers.
I am: An independent spirit with visionary style.
