Michael Dueñas Exclusive Interview
What projects are you currently working on?
They always change, I did just shoot the cover of Jalouse Magazine for my client Rinko Kikuchi, I am off to Comic Con to work withYvonne Strahovski and then I am shooting the Jonas Brothers for the cover of Flaunt Magazine, so a few things happening!
When did you first discover Perfect Locks hair?
My Publicist introduced me and recommended I try some of the hair, I fell in love with the quality!
What about your job do you love the most?
I love creating art. either very strong editorial hair, or pure perfect polished locks, its all beautiful. Plus I get to make people happy, what could be better than that!?
From where do you draw your inspiration?
I draw my inspiration from other hair around me. When someone passes me, I can see the beauty of another style / cut in their hair. It gets me excited!
How did you become a celebrity stylist?
I think I just got lucky. I was doing photoshoots to build my portfolio, and decided to go Agency shopping. I got pickled up by a very well known agency and the rest is history.
What is the biggest challenge when styling a celebrity?
Making sure their publicist is happy.. The client may love it, but it mightnot be up the publicists alley. Its always a fine line of pushing too much or not enough.
What has been the highlight of your career to date?
Becoming the Schwarzkopf Professional National Ambassador. Its very surreal to have a title like that!
Do you have any interesting hobbies?
I love to build furniture and lighting fixtures. I use reclaimed wood and copper for almost everything I build. It is beyond fun!
