I’m excite to share with you my interview with Avon Global Stylist Advisor Tippi Shorter.
In 1995 Tippi headed from home town, Long Beach, California to New York City, and within a year of her move she was asked to participate in a beauty feature for Essence magazine. Tippi opened Luxe Studio in Soho, but sold the successful salon after four years to pursue other career opportunities such as styling for photo shoots, music videos and commercials. Tippi is known for taming the tresses of A-list actresses, musicians, and supermodels including Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Vanessa Williams, to name a few! And while her beauty masterpieces are seen on the covers and editorial pages of In Style and Vanity Fair, Tippi remains modest and humble saying “I am not a celebrity hairstylist. I am a hairstylist who happens to have the opportunity to work with many wonderful celebrities.”
Tippi Shorter, Celebrity Stylist, styled Alicia Keys hair last night for the American Music Awards. Alicia dominated the stage, performing her and Jay-Z’s smash hit “Empire State of Mind” while also rocking it solo with her new song “Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart.”
Here’s how Tippi gave Alicia her red carpet hairdo:
Alicia recently got her hair colored a few shades lighter with Clairol, so Tippi started off by washing her hair with the Pantene Pro-V Color Revival Shampoo & Conditioner to keep her color looking healthy and vibrant for the camera.

Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series nominee Holly Hunter is noted for her formidable mane, and her Emmy’s look was no exception as her dramatic locks once again turned heads. Movie-star beautiful and naturally elegant, her waved hair was silky smooth and shiny, and absolutely eye-catching. Star stylist Enzo Angileri who created the look, was inspired by the glamorous metallic sheen of her gown. He created a rich texture emphasized by intense waves, smoothness, and shine.
“I wanted her to look glamorous and goddess-like,” said Angileri, “and the hair had to look luminous.”
“Holly’s hair and color is beautiful,” said Angileri, “and I wanted to bring out its deep gold and honey tones for the cameras. Shine was everything in this look since these amazing highlights wouldn’t be at all visible in hair that was not shiny enough to reflect the light — especially on camera and in photos.
