Allow us to introduce you to another creative talent from our TCD selection: this time, we talk about hairbrushes, Paris Vogue and kittens – yes, kittens – with Claire Rothstein, hairstylist. Claire’s collaborated with publications such as the British Vogue, Elle and Harpers Bazaar, Wonderland, and brands such as Nike and Vivienne Westwood to name a few. We’re delighted to meet her!
TCD: What made you want to become a hairstylist?
CR: I fell into it by accident, it looked like fun, little did I know it would be my perfect job.
TCD: If you could make a list of your favourite contemporary hairstylists, who would you pick?
CR: Guido and Eugene Souleiman have had long, incredible, enviable careers are are still doing what they love and doing it brilliantly, that is something to admire.
TCD: If you were to tag yourself on TCD what 3 words would you use?
CR: Hairbrush, ginger, opinionated.
TCD: So what exciting projects are you working on right now?
CR: Currently I am exploring the more ‘business’ side of the industry, it’s daunting and there is a lot to learn but think there could be something exciting in there somewhere. Watch this space.
TCD: What would be your dream commission?
CR: The cover of Paris Vogue with Joan Collins covered in kittens shot by Terry Richardson probably.
TCD: Go on, tell us a secret?
CR: I’d like to start a Beefy Rothstein merchandise range. Pathetic isn’t it.
