MICHAEL BEEL, HAIR STYLIST

Fashion Quarterly - - Inside -

What is on your read­ing list right now? Gods and Kings by Dana Thomas, about the rise and fall of Alexan­der McQueen and John Gal­liano. I adore what th­ese de­sign­ers have done, not only for fash­ion, but for mak­ing peo­ple think out­side the box. What are you lis­ten­ing

to? I think I’m try­ing to re­dis­cover my 90s youth, so I’m lis­ten­ing to old school artists like Mel and Kim, early Madonna, En Vogue and Ge­orge Michael. Any­thing to put me in a feel-good mood and make me want to move my hips. Fri­day night food spot? Some­where cheap and cheer­ful... I love Mex­ico! Best fried chicken in town and who doesn’t love a good taco? Last film you saw? The First Mon­day in May. The scene where they pull the Dior dress out of stor­age - I die! Dream din­ner party quest? I would love to have one more din­ner with my mum. She passed away sud­denly, right be­fore Christ­mas a few years ago. To have her in my home, shar­ing an amaz­ing meal I’ve cooked, and laugh­ing like we used to would be amaz­ing. Favourite quote? “Hair is the strong­est per­sonal fash­ion state­ment any­one could ever make” – Anna Win­tour, or “The higher the hair, the closer to God” – Dolly Par­ton.
