Working with the likes of Sia, Taraji P. Henson, Kate Nash and Tove Lo, hair stylist Netty Jordan knows a thing or two about hair. We caught up with her to learn more about her up-and-coming career, her favorite products and hair trends for 2016.
DC: How did you get started as a hair stylist?
NJ: I knew early on in high school I wanted to be a hair stylist. I was always fascinated with math and chemistry and was drawn to the creative, yet technical aspect of hair coloring and styling. I attended beauty school right after graduating and was hooked.
DC: What have been some of your favorite shoots/clients to work with?
NJ: I’ve been blessed to work with some of the most amazing and talented people. I’m always honored to be a part of my clients’ journeys in their careers as they push me to strive in my own.
DC: What are your go-to hair products?
NJ: I’m not going to lie, I am a product hoarder! I love using products differently than their intended use and always switching it up. My top favorites that never leave my kit are Oribe Dry Texture Spray and SuperFine Hairspray, TecniArt Beach Waves Spray, Redken Outshine, and Lucas’ Papaw Ointment.
DC: Where/what do you go to for inspiration?
NJ: When I’m feeling a need for inspiration, I simply put my headphones in and walk around New York. Whether it’s in Brooklyn or Manhattan, I’m constantly inspired by the evolving trends and effortless styles of all the people in the melting pot I live in.
DC: What are some 2016 trends in hair we should be looking out for?
NJ: I feel clean, polished hair is really going to stand out in 2016. You can never go wrong with a smooth ponytail or a sleek blowout.
DC: How does your style affect your own hairstyle choices?
NJ: When it comes to my own hairstyle choices, I like to keep it trendy but super low maintenance. With my crazy schedule it’s usually a quick, messy top knot or down with some textured waves.
DC: What are some of your favorite District Clothing pieces?
NJ: What I love about District Clothing is how versatile every piece is. The tees can be dressed up or down and the hoodies can be layered with everything. My staple pieces are the Tri-Blend Scoop Neck Tees thrown under a leather jacket. They’re great whether you’re on set or on the red carpet!
