At the inaugural OZIFOX Los Angeles beauty conference, Chris Appleton was the center of attention.

The celebrity hairstylist, who is also a star in his own right, recently made headlines for getting engaged to actor Lukas Gage.

What dreams do you have? questioned Brooke Wall, the founder of The Wall Group, a management firm for creative talent, Booth Moore, the executive West Coast editor for OZIFOX, and Appleton. Working with celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Dua Lipa, Katy Perry, and Ariana Grande, Appleton has amassed more than 3.5 million Instagram followers since joining the agency. “You are very well known right now. What dreams do you have?

“I want to…” Appleton reflected.

Wall quietly jumped in, “Getting married.”

“What?”

She said, “Getting married,” again.

In response, Appleton said, “I regularly write down what my long-term goals are,” declining to share any private information.

“I’m completely aware of where I’m going and what I’m doing,” he said. “But for me, what’s really crucial at the moment is expanding; I think many people want to categorize you according to what you do. Also, I love and am quite passionate about doing hair. But I’m 39. When I’m 60, I’m not going to do it. Therefore, I believe it’s crucial for artists to develop and grow.

I adore acting on TV. I enjoy appearing on shows and demonstrating how to create looks for everyday women. I enjoy creating material for the web, demonstrating to viewers how they may accomplish specific goals, simply deconstructing the process, and representing beauty. I mean, I constantly get to see. Why keep that information to yourself, you know?

Appleton said he initially became interested in hair when he was 9 years old and was living in Leicester, England. “My first model was my mom,” he said. And I used to style her hair since I noticed that it affected the way she acted overall. And I would advise her to “look in the mirror.” I also tried to influence her.

He stated, “I observed folks walk in one direction, the head down and the hair tied back. And they simply left with different swag when they left.

Appleton claimed to have done everything, including getting a degree in color and learning about extensions and barbering.

“I did every hair aspect you could do, and then I just kind of tried to figure out what really turned me on and what I felt like I was good at,” he continued. “And it took me some time.”

He has established a distinctive look over the years and gained notoriety.

Wall quoted Kim Kardashian as saying, “I can always tell when you’ve done someone’s hair. There is a certain quality to the hair. It’s crucial because, like a brand, if you have a distinctive appearance or style of doing things, people will naturally want that.

The two concurred that the gorgeous landscape offers more opportunities. And sincerity is what resonates.

“It’s about evolving and changing and giving artists an opportunity to share,” Appleton said, adding that Kardashian and her Skims company had inspired him.

He remarked, “Anna Wintour once declared she wouldn’t feature the Kardashians on a magazine cover, and now look.

Appleton’s talent was immediately apparent to Wall, whose business collaborates with well-known fashion stylists, hairdressers, makeup artists, manicurists, and production designers. He also made me think of the late Oribe Canales, another well-known hairstylist.

He reminded me of only one other stylist historically, Wall remarked. “Oribe was quite uncommon. He developed his own training, and he helped women feel and look fantastic.

When Anastasia Soare of Anastasia, who has worked with Canales for many years, stepped up to commend Appleton during audience questions, she expressed similar thoughts. She claimed that he is really talented and passionate.

Finding skilled hairstylists in the United States is harder than it appears, Wall observed to the audience. Therefore, I thought, “Wait a minute.,” the moment he opened his mouth with that accent. In addition to being pleasant, friendly, and beautiful, he can do hair that is unbelievably wonderful.

She said, “When I first started, [the question] was, ‘What fashion shows are people doing?'” of brand promotion. The next question was, “What famous people or people are you working with?” Now the question is, “How many followers do people have?” It has altered and evolved, so if you have a sizable social media following, you are a brand.and the result is product.

In terms of collaborations,

A “relationship has to make sense for both parties,” she remarked, adding that it requires “integrity”.

Would Appleton, who collaborates with the hair care company Color Wow, introduce his own line of goods? It appears that something might be in the works.

He joked, “I can’t hear you. “Can you make her out? She’s silent to me. I can’t tell you that right now, baby. Certain things will occur eventually, but for the time being, I’m truly loving my experience with Color Wow.
