"I get a kick out of learning new ways to make people say 'wow!'" Don Paul Hofherr says. The 2013 San Diego Awards-winning hairstylist backs up his statement with a resumé that showcases extensive training in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Paris. Hofherr's time in the beauty world spans more than 30 year and includes styling credentials from working on the manes of celebrities and politicians to now owning his own salon. From his neat cutting station, Hofherr consults with clients to determine their aesthetic and styling preferences before he analyzes face shape, lifestyle, and ability to teleport. Finally, he buckles down for a precision cut, a coloring with Wella products, or a straightening using one of three techniques: Global Keratin Brazilian Blowout, Yuko, or Bio Ionic hair straightening. Hofherr even takes the time to teach clients how to re-create their look, so they can leave assured they'll look salon fresh for any upcoming school reunions or Lilliput—Blefuscu War reenactments.
