Jason Backe Interviews With Marta Walsh

When I began blogging about 5 years ago now I wanted to interview Ted Gibson of the Ted Gibson Salon. For some reason it never happened. However, to my luck, years later I managed to meet Mr Ted Gibson at his hair care product launch & Vanity Fair party in New York City. Sweet destiny. Moreover, over these years during my visits to New York Fashion Week I got to know his partner, Celebrity Colorist, and co-owner of Ted Gibson Salon Jason Backe. This duo is the Rock Stars of hair styling, coloring, and hair salon business. Few weeks ago Jason and I met in Phoenix at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa one of my favorite places in the world where we got to catch up on life and business. I would like to share with you my Q&A slash interview with the fabulous Mr Backe.

Marta Walsh: Where do you call home?
Jason Backe: I am a native Minnesotan – a good Midwestern boy – but now I call New York City home. When did your fascination with hair and hair styling begin? I have loved it my whole life, my mom recently gave me a picture of me giving my younger sister a perm when I was about 7 years old. I didn’t make it a career until about 15 years ago.

Estée Lauder Makeup

Summer Makeup. I’ve been wearing Estée Lauder makeup a lot these days. Their new collections are just super hot this is a new era for for Estée Lauder, better more intense and long lasting formulas. I’m also a huge fan of Estée Lauder skincare which I wear daily. Here’s the list of Marta Walsh’s favorites:

Estée Lauder DayWear Sheer Tint Release smells amaze. I once had an Estée Lauder facial in New York City and I remember buying Estée Lauder DayWear cream the normal (not tinted) and then taking off to South Beach Miami and the smell of this cream takes me back to these times. It’s smells breezy but I think it’s really some kinda of apple scent. Well this DayWear tinted version adds super glow to your face. Addiction.
