Anh Co Tran, co-owner of Ramirez | Tran Salon in Beverly Hills, is an expert celebrity hair stylist. Tran injects creativity, passion and innovation into every masterpiece he creates. Specializing in vanguard cuts and classically beautiful styles, Tran carefully balances precision, movement, and texture for each and every client. Drawing his creative inspiration from high fashion, art, and film giving, Tran’s cuts are unique and have a beautifully subtle edge. He is also the master of hair extensions.
Tran’s most notable clients include Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, and Emily Ratajkowski. He has created the ‘customized’ haircut aka ‘lived in hair’.
Tran’s key differentiator lies in his methodology. Rather than lathering up, Tran starts with completely dry hair. “This allows me to see cowlicks and how her hair behaves. I can also see split ends and if there are any, this allows me to trim them down,” he explains. “Most people wear their hair in its dry state, so I cut it that way.” Nothing says, “I just cut my hair” like a straight, harsh line, so to avoid this, Tran cuts into the hair to create variation and give the look a lived-in effect. “You know how you get a new pair of jeans and you have to break them in? I’m kind of breaking the hair in for you,” he says. “Instead of getting that new stiff pair, you’re getting worn-in, vintage jeans, and that’s the same philosophy that applies to the haircut. You end up with a style that suits you, and becomes part of you.”
Tran and Ramirez met while working together in Beverly Hills. It was an obvious mesh that the two should form their own salon. Tran with his customized haircut and Ramirez as the king of color correction, together they create beautiful forward looks.
