WHAT'S ON YOUR IPOD?
We asked Scott Fontana, renowned stylist, educator and creator of Badass Hair, what he's been listening to:
"Girls, Girls, Girls" by Mötley Crüe. "What can I say, I love women. Being surrounded by women is what my whole life as a hairdresser has been about, making them more beautiful than they already are by projecting their inner beauty to their hairstyle."
"Lose Yourself" by Eminem. "In life, you only get one shot. If you can lose yourself in your passion, in what makes you happy, you can achieve whatever dream you have."
"For the Love of Money" by BulletBoys. "I like this version better than the original cause I'm an '80s rocker. I happen to be someone who likes to give money away—giving back just a little can really help someone pave the road to a happy and successful future."
