#IHSBeautiesBrains Panelist: Anthony Dickey
Last but certainly not least, I’d like to introduce you to my final panelist for “The Beauties & Brains Behind the Brands II” on April 6th. Meet Anthony Dickey (better known as “Dickey”) and be prepared to step In His Shoes. As the Founder and Creative Director of Hair Rules, Dickey’s mission during his 20+ year career as a hairstylist has been to dispel myths about beauty that are deeply rooted in historical and social experiences. Dickey feels the issues surrounding textured hair should be less about social division and more about defining standards and products so that the mainstream perception about beauty can evolve and reflect the real world.
Mastering the mystery of textured hair, dickey has created iconic hairstyles for designers, advertisers, photographers and celebrities alike. Sarah Jessica Parker, Minnie Driver, Alicia Keys, Kelis, and Andre 3000 are just a few of the notables he has styled. He has contributed editorial imagery to magazines including vogue, vanity fair, essence, vibe, the new york times magazine, glamour, and allure.
Because of a lack of understanding by the hair-care industry on how to properly and healthily manage hair via a texture-specific approach rather than an ethnic-specific approach, and to empower the consumer, Dickey authored hair rules!: the ultimate haircare guide for women with kinky, curly or wavy hair, pioneering a new standard of hair care and styling solutions for a multi-textural world.
Inspired by the success of his book and the enthusiastic response from women around the world, Dickey launched hair rules, a solutions-oriented line of cleansers, conditioning treatments and styling aids specifically geared to the special needs of kinky, curly and wavy hair. his hope is to encourage people, once and for all, to embrace their natural beauty.
As you can see, Dickey is definitely a man in the beauty industry you want to know. Click here to get your tickets for “The Beauties & Brains Behind the Brands II” today!
