A celebrity hair stylist in Miami can be as elusive as the perfect blonde hue. Yet Sheenon Olson of freshly minted Atma Beauty salon in Miami Beach — who boasts an enviable client list including Alessandra Ambrosio, Elle Macpherson, Mario Testino, Chris Colfer and Jesse Metcalfe — is here to share is Los Angeles salon expertise with us. We chat up the salon co-owner and photographer and here are some of the highlights. (Get it?)
When it comes to hair, what is your claim to fame?
My specialty is making people look younger and thinner.
What’s the biggest color trend this season?
The latest is baby lights, which are super fine highlights. People like this because it’s more natural looking. Baby lights are typically placed around the face and make the face really pop.
Many of us bring pictures to our colorists with our #hairgoals. Which celebs’ manes do you see most often when this occurs?
For blondes, I get a lot of Gigi Hadid, and brunettes typically bring Jessica Alba. But these days, I see a lot more Instagram photos instead of celebrities — whether they are a model’s Instagrams or the [social media] accounts of other salons.
Who is your hair muse?
Brazilian model Izabel Goulart.
You recently moved over from the West Coast. What do you love most about your newfound home of Miami?
I love that every day is a beach day.
