Name: Angela Stone
Occupation: Celebrity Hair Stylist

Q: When did you first learn that hair was your passion?
A: Actually my mother discovered it when I was about 4 years old. I had given all my dolls haircuts. I got my first salon job when I was 14 as a hair braider.
Q: You recently styled music icon, Missy Elliott for the cover of Elle Magazine. Tell us a bit about your inspiration behind the look.
A: It was such an honor to be a part of that project. I wanted to create a look that showed more of Missy's face but didn't compromise her style. Texture and tone were essential.
Q: What has been the most exciting moment in your career?
A: There have been so many, to even narrow it down to a few would be a challenge. Traveling to places that were only in my dreams, working with celebrities I admired, learning new things from seasoned industry pro's, and the list goes on.
Q: What are your beauty projections for this season?
A: Short hair will definitely be in fashion this season. Natural hair and soft curls will add volume and texture to more feminine looks. Also color will continue to make a statement.
Q: What have been some of the barriers you have faced in this industry?
A: Honestly I have been blessed to have worked with some incredible people. Sometimes you have to remind yourself to mix it up a bit so you are not putting yourself in a box.
Q: What is a staple hair product that you use on set that every stylist should have?
A: My CHI iron guard spray and MISS UNIVERSE Flexible Hair Spray. They work well with my CHI rechargeable flat iron for those stubborn fly-aways!
