MIN­UTES WITH ... JEN ATKIN

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Beauty -

The celebrity hair­styl­ist and founder of Ouai Hair­care re­veals her hair no-nos and thoughts on the throw­back to ’90s trends. WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR TRADE? One of the things that re­ally drew me to do­ing hair was the idea of trans­form­ing a per­son and mak­ing them feel re­ally good. With the rise of so­cial me­dia, I’m also re­ally pas­sion­ate about help­ing more women learn how to do their own hair. On our web­site (TheOuai.com), we do tu­to­ri­als of real women do­ing their own hair, just to show peo­ple that you can achieve cer­tain looks on your own. WHAT IS YOUR HAIR PHI­LOS­O­PHY? Take a chance, take a rest, and try lay­ers. PET PEEVES WHEN IT COMES TO HAIR? Us­ing prod­ucts in­cor­rectly—I’ve seen when peo­ple have used too much hair oil. Also, not cut­ting their hair or get­ting stuck in a long hair rut where they don’t play around with their hair colour. I wish peo­ple would do more! WHICH DECADE ARE YOU MOST IN­SPIRED BY STYLISTICALLY? I’m in­spired by ’90s su­per­mod­els such as Linda Evan­ge­lista and Christy Turling­ton; there was also a lot of va­ri­ety in hair­styles then. I like Cindy Craw­ford and Clau­dia Schif­fer’s long, lay­ered hair, and then there was also Gwen Ste­fani and Shirley Man­son from Garbage. WHO WOULD YOU TRADE HAIR­STYLES WITH FOR ONE DAY? Dora the Ex­plorer. I just did it! [laughs] I love Bianca Jag­ger’s hair and ev­ery­thing from the ’70s. Ev­ery­thing then was so cool! Ouai Hair­care is avail­able at Sephora stores na­tion­wide. www.sephora.my
