“I am a huge fan of Cate Blanchett – of both her work and her look – and was lucky enough to meet her at a party in London that friends of mine were hosting. I’m afraid to say it was one of my most embarrassing moments – I was completely star-struck and didn’t know what to say. Inevitably, we talked about her hair and I ended up doing it for her a few days later.
“Cate has a style that is relaxed but polished. She is sophisticated and always carries herself with grace. Personally, I feel she is one of the most refined actresses of our time.
“I think what Cate does best is modern beauty. Whether it’s hair, make-up or fashion, it’s all tastefully done. This is what I try to create in my own signature work – classic beauty with a contemporary twist.”
