We had the good fortune of connecting with Dean Banowetz and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dean, how do you think about risk?
How do you think about risk what rule has taking risks played in your life and career?

Whenever I think about a risk I always think to myself a risk is an opportunity to elevate myself to the next level. In order to elevate and prepare for that risk all you need to do is research and prepare and believe in yourself.
“My mother always told me if it was easy everyone would do it so take the chance/risk and make it happen.”

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
As a hairdresser you’re naturally creative and you like to be around people I also have my associates in art education in history so I like to combine both to create some really fun stuff. My main focus is working on competition reality shows where I get to create and cultivate looks for dances singing performances and it is all about creating the look. I like to take chances and do unique things with Hair. I am the Hollywoodhairguy from Iowa and wanna make sure that no one judges me from where I come from but for what I know how to do.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If I were going to take one of my friends to my favorite part of the city I would have to take them to the beach. I would book a cute Airbnb in Malibu with beach views. Have dinner at Mastro’s walk on the beach lunch at Nobu walk on the beach nap on the beach then repeat. I would also drive up the coast the PCH highway is amazing and breathtaking. I would also have to take them to Agoura Hills perfect baby goat brunch

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shout out would have to go to my brother Leon #12. Let me explain; I am the 13th of 15 children born and raised on a farm in Iowa and we all identify by our birth order number. It’s our own Dewey decimal system. Leon is the one who encouraged me to go to hair school, he’s also the one Who encouraged me to move to Los Angeles from Iowa.
