While getting my bi-weekly haircut on Saturday, which at this point was actually at 3 weeks (busy, busy), who should walk into the salon, but Emmy award-winning make-up artist, Mr. Reggie Wells himself! Who is Reggie Wells? some of you may ask; Mr. Wells was Oprah Winfrey’s makeup artist for 20 plus years!
He was an absolute darling and a pleasure to talk to and was so down to earth with no airs and graces. Reggie had us all rolling with laughter within 15 minutes of his arrival. Reggie has worked with all the major stars including: Chaka Khan, Diahann Carroll, Oprah Winfrey, Iman, Whitney Houston, and more. Unfortunately I was unable to take a pic with him, though he was willing; but I was smack in the middle of my haircut and colour and he had to leave. So here is my photo of Mr. Reggie Wells and Mr. Duvall who is the owner of the salon.
Can you believe Mr Duvall is 82 years young!! He is one of the sharpest business men I know, with amazing stories of Washington, DC in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. To read more about Reggie’s time with Oprah click here.
Mr. Wells is also the International Creative Director of Australia’s beauty brand Hissyfit. Hissyfit is the brainchild of Australia’s Olympic gold medalist Louise Dobson and former magazine editor Sue Smethurst. To see more on Hissy Fit click on the link.
Wishing you an amazing and productive week. Smooches!
