For our third installment of our Stylist Interview series, we sat down with Matt Belding and talked about grooming tips and what trend really has him bothered. He has strong opinions and we're listening!
What are your “must have” tools?
My absolute must have tools would be my Wahl Senior Reflections and Bedrock. Yes, products are tools too. I blowdry 95% of my clients with Bedrock in the hair.
Who is your dream client?
My dream client is the overly ambitious client that strives to be greater, with both his style and appearance.
Any favorite hair trends and any you’d like to see go?
I LOVE the cropped fringe. Though it's not seen too much yet here in the states, I wear it! I would like to see the "top knots" on top and short sides go. I can't stand it!
What led you this career path?
I have always had a passion for men's grooming. I never felt confident with my appearance growing up being a "ginger" and all. So, naturally I found a home when I realized I had the power to look my best with a fresh do and bomb style.
What does “Confidence” mean to you?
Confidence means waking up, looking in the mirror and seeing the best version of you. Walking through the world knowing you do what you do at 100%. Confidence is the strength to know you can do anything you dream, as long as you stay authentic to YOU.
