WHAT'S ON YOUR IPOD?
We asked celebrity stylist and Nioxin spokesperson—and Shear Genius, season one, contestant—Theodore Leaf what he's been listening to.
"Give It 2 Me" by Madonna. "This song is fun, and it makes you feel like you can do anything!"
"Damaged" by Danity Kane. "I have worked with Aubrey from the group, and I got to hear this early. It's so sassy. All of my friends love to dance to this one."
"Rock With U" by Janet Jackson. "I put this on when I'm driving in the Hollywood Hills on a Sunday afternoon. It's so chill."

Putnam, assisted by stylist Drew Norton, created a French twist, then curled the hair at the top of the head with a 2-inch curling iron, setting the look with Enjoy hairspray. —L.A.
