This week I talked with Anthony Pazos, hairstylist extraordinaire and breakout reality TV personality of the second season of WE TV network docu-series L.A. Hair, which returns on June 6. Pazos dazzles as the wild and outspoken protégé of reigning celebrity hairstylist Kim Kimble, whose clients include Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Rowland and Shakira, on "L.A. Hair". Pazos is undoubtedly the next hair visionary to take over the Hollywood hair industry with his quick wit, sharp tongue, unique style and electrifying aptitude for making women look fabulous. Rivalry is fierce on this ground breaking series with Anthony front and center of all the action. I talked to Anthony about how he became involved with "L.A. Hair" and his spin on our LGBT issues.
When asked what his personal commitment is to LGBT Equality Pazos stated:
I was talking to my boyfriend about that this morning and I would love to see equal rights across the board, regardless if you're gay, lesbian, transgender, whatever, just equal rights. I mean it's not that hard, I don't understand what the deal is and why it's such an issue. My commitment is basically just talking about it, telling my story, how I grew up and what I went through, just being open and being out and honest about it. I also associate myself with other members of the community like Jessica Clark who I like totally love. So just like being openly gay and talking about it is my commitment.
Anthony Pazos who was born and raised in Torrance, California also shares his very personal experiences of being bullied and beaten in high school. Overcoming adversities Anthony has been featured in Vogue Italia, Hollywood Reporter, Backstage, Wired, Venice, Fader and Curve magazines. He has also appeared on E! Style Network's "How Do I Look" and "Split Ends". Anthony became a self-taught aesthetic mastermind at a young age working at some of Los Angeles' most prestigious salons, while being classically trained and mastering the techniques of hair legends such as Vidal Sassoon and Toni & Guy. Now an established and sought after stylist with training to work with any hair, his career continues to dazzle as he works his magic on celebrities and fans alike.
