FSF: How do the hair trends differ from city to city? Describe the style and trends in let’s say, Miami, New York and LA?

FSF: You have styled some high profile celebrities. Who has been your favorite to work with?
EDP: I am grateful for having had the opportunity to style many celebrities and models but I can’t choose a favorite because they were all fabulous. You can see pictures on my Facebook page.
FSF: You’ve worked on so many big events from New York Fashion Week to Art Basel. How do you prepare for these events and do the events/productions determine the look you’re going for?
EDP: I always have magazines, books with images, clippings, art references so that I’m ready for whatever comes my way. All year round, I prepare myself by going to art openings, museums, watching documentaries, and attending music events. That’s how I love to fuel my many passions. I create individual style for my clients versus working the runway because that’s more about pleasing the designer and complementing the collection because the clothing is the highlight. When I style clients for weddings or events it’s much more fun to make them be whoever they want to be for a day.
FSF: Summer is nearly upon us and one of the biggest factors working against hair in Miami is the brutal humidity. What are some tips to keep frizz under control in this weather?
EDP: The main rule is don’t fight the texture of your hair. But don’t confuse hair that needs nutrition, conditioning, and regular trims, with “my hair is frizzy,” damaged hair doubles as frizzy. All of my clients have first and foremost, healthy hair. For curly hair my favorite is the leave in conditioner, Warren Tricomi Curl Definer, along with the use of keratin once a year for the extremely curly hair. For fine hair, use Kerastase and I suggest using volumizing spray right before pumping it with a medium round brush. Another great product is Bumble and Bumble surf spray for a natural beach look.
FSF: What trends will we be seeing this summer that every woman should try out?
EDP: I think women should not follow trends. I help my clients find the look that is most natural while bringing out their unique features and maximizing their hair texture. A haircut that elevates your confidence and makes you feel great is a trend every woman should follow.
FSF: Is there a hair trend you wish would just go away?
EDP: Cheap extensions. They not only create terrible damage but we all see that they are fake. Invest in your hair, it’s a major part of your life.
FSF: Not only are you a master with a pair of scissors, you also have a very unique sense of style. Who or what influences your personal look when you get dressed to head out the door?
EDP: I like black. I like minimalism. I like Keith Rechards. I like Lenny Kravitz. My style is inspired by all these things. I appreciate craftsmanship, well-made clothes and accessories are the essence of a gentleman. My favorite designers at the moment are Hedi Slimane, Martin Margiela and Ricardo Tisci.
