Celebrity hairstylist Allen Edwards

He has been on Oprah, E!, and his most famous haircut may bring you back to the days of 'Charlie's Angels.' Celebrity hairdresser Allen Edwards and his team have styled Julianne Moore, Lara Flynn Boyle, Renee Zellweger and more. Edwards tells Indulge about some of his secrets to success, what we are doing wrong with our hair and what the new 'Shabob' is all about.

Indulge: What was your most memorable haircut?
Allen Edwards: I am the original creator of the Farrah Fawcett signature layered cut which started a trend that still exists today. Also, 'scrunching' hair was very popular -we did it on Donna Mills for 'Knots Landing.'

Indulge: What styles should women or men avoid?
Allen Edwards: You want to avoid styles that emphasize your bad features. For example, if you have a high forehead, make sure that you wear bangs. If you have a long, thin face, make sure your hair is not too long. If you are heavier, don’t wear hair that’s too big.

Indulge: Any secret tricks you use?
Allen Edwards: I cut hair with tapering scissors and a razor. It takes away a lot of weight, makes the hair more fluid and makes the hair more interesting.

Indulge: What are the newest styles this summer?
Allen Edwards: Bobs have been big so far and now we’re going in with a razor and making them shaggier but still with the bob line. We call them 'Shabobs.'

Indulge: Who are your favorite celebrity clients?
Allen Edwards: Rene Russo, Sally Fields, Rachel Welch, Anne Bancroft, Donna Mills and Suzanne Somers.

Indulge: What is your secret to staying on top?
Allen Edwards: This year we are celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Allen Edwards Salon + Spa. The secret to the success of my salons is education. We are always thinking creatively and out-of-the-box. I try to enforce the idea of endless array of change. My stylists change styles on a client every 6 months or as often as possible.
