Long video, but you can see what he looks like!
Today for class we had Dean Banowetz, hair stylist for American Idol, Ryan Seacrest, Leeza Gibbons, Ellen, cut Zack Effrons hair etc..really the list goes on and on. Back in February Paul Mitchell Schools all around the country were having a fundraiser for a bunch of different organizations. The top 12 School who made the most money were rewarded with a guest artist. Provo, being the twelve school, was awarded with Dean.
He walked in and was seriously build like a football player. (Except a little on the chunky side) I whispered to my friend, that's cool that a straight guy does hair for all these famous people. Well after about a second of him talking we realized he wasn't. Which is fine just surprised us because he definitely doesn't look the part.
It was interesting to hear about all the stars of American Idol. Kellie Pickler was a big air head...didn't say those exact words, but close;). Carrie Underwood, one of the most beautiful women he's worked on, has absolutely no personality though. Said she pretty much sits and stares at walls, didn't care what he did to her hair at all. It was fun for me to hear all these stories about the contestants just because I'm a big fan of American Idol. He quit the show and now is working on different things that he wants to accomplish. He has been Ryan Seacrest's personal stylist for a while but quit that also around Memorial Day.
Talked a lot about goals, motivating us all to make the best of school while we're here.
He has two assistants that graduated from Paul Mitchell Schools! (Holla at Paul Mitchell!!!) Gave us his email to contact him if anyone is interested in TV/film hair and makeup. Can help get us started.
This is one more reason I love I chose a Paul Mitchell School to go to. They truly care about us and want us to be taught by the best in the industry!!
