Clark has built his career on knowing that being a great hairstylist means not limiting yourself to one ethnicity in hairstyling. Clark Russell, who is a __ has taken on this philosophy to his clients.

What inspires you? 

Things that inspire us are fashion, music, art movements, colors and textures.

 

Do any of your team members have a person that you idolize, or someone who inspires you in the hair, makeup, salon or general beauty industry? 

Clark-Madonna was always a huge inspiration to Clarks fashion and life, however Martin Parsons was always a favorite for Clark as far as hairstyling goes.

Jeffrey- Lady Gaga is a huge inspiration to Jeffrey. She inspires all of Jeffrey’s looks as a drag queen both in hair, make-up and fashion.

Anjie- Beyonce is a huge influence with Anjie’s style, make-up artistry and of course in drag.

 

Why do you think your team should be one of the top 10 salons to compete in Las Vegas this fall?

I think what our team will bring to the Las Vegas show in the fall would be an eclectic composition of creativeness, vision and a fierce sense of presence in the show. As entertainers and artists we can outshine any of the competition on stage and make it a show worth watching beyond just hair and beauty talent.

 

What does winning the competition mean to your salon? Or to your individual members?

For our salon, it means a sense of accomplishment and being part of a creative movement in an industry we are passionate about. Who wouldn’t want to list winner of Battle of the Strands to their bio.
