What Is a Week in the Life of a Celeb Hairstylist is *Actually* Like

We’ve had fantasies about “a day in the life” of our favorite celebs for years. Can you imagine a weekend on the megayacht Kylie rented for her Italian birthday? Or how about grabbing a snack from Kim Kardashian’s walk-in fridge? What we haven’t given much thought to is how hectic and beautifully busy a day in the life of a celebrity hair professional would look like. Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One opened her calendar app for us and is giving us a glimpse into what a crazy week looks like for one of Hollywood’s top pros.

Day 1: Megan Rapinoe

Riawna Capri’s client Megan isn’t one to sit on the sidelines. She loves to switch up her color before exciting events. We dare say that the Olympic qualifier vs Mexico is the perfect time to give her locks some love. Riawna Capri’s team settled on calling the new color on Megan “Moonshine.” Riawna Capri masterfully executed full highlights and then proceeded to add a deep purple root. The look was topped off with lavender tips and a streak of baby-electric blue. They decided to go with a haircut that kept her mane tight on the sides and longer on the top to keep it fresh and modern.

Day 2: Sophia Bush

Sophia Bush and her brunette locks have been the stuff of beauty lore for years. How do you make her look even better? That’s an easy question for Riawna Capri. “I richened up her chocolate brunette color and did a Crystal Cashmere treatment to keep her hair healthy and shiny,” the pro says. We have to admit, the results speak for themselves.

Day 3: Ashlee Simpson

Ashlee Simpson has been sporting an awesome rose gold and bronze copper color. Riawna Capri knows that if it ain’t broke, there is no need to fix it. For this reason, during her time with the songstress all Riawna had to do was freshen up her highlights.

Day 4: Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez’s iconic mane got an upgrade with a sprinkle of caramel, bronze, and sunkissed highlights. The pop artists popped by to see Riawna Capri for a freshen up to her 70s shag and color.

Day 5: Emma Roberts 

Emma Roberts saw Riawna for a no-frills appointment where she got “a fresh, soft blunt chop, no layers, but not hard lines,” says the pro. How would Riawna herself describe the end result? “Textured soft line, not piece-y,” she confirms. Her blonde was also touched up by fellow 901 pro Amber Maynard Bolt.

Now that you know what it takes to be a superstar hair pro in LA, why not venture over to PARIS to see how they do things on that side of the world?
