“As the season changes to spring, I reflect on the changes around me and the progression of my own life. I am truly happy with how @Livedinhair was able to fit into the past decade effortlessly and suit the lives of so many people. As culture and our understanding of beauty continue to evolve, I want my brand to keep growing and flourishing in this new decade!
I am proud to share that I have a new vision for the brand and announce that I have a new collaborator @Milbonusa! I have been given the position of guiding @Milbonusa as a Global Creative Director! My partnership with them reflects our shared goal of enhancing and adding vibrancy and beauty to the lives of people around us. I’m truly impressed at Milbon’s ability to elevate the industry at the highest level for professionals. They have over a 50 year history of conducting cutting edge research and creating innovative products that allow professionals to elevate their craft.
The saying “Old ways won’t open new doors” symbolizes something ever so deep. I am so excited to collaborate my new aesthetic vision with Milbon’s industry leadership. I hope you enjoy this Spring/Summer editorial collection that reveals an original look for @livedinhair based on growth and empowerment. I think the sultry, sensual, and 70s vibe will fit well into the first spring into the new decade.”
Anh Co Tran is an expert celebrity hair stylist located in Los Angeles, CA. Tran injects creativity, passion and innovation into every masterpiece he creates. Specializing in vanguard cuts and classically beautiful styles, Anh Co 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.
Anh Co Tran’s most notable clients include Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, and Emily Ratajkowski. He has created the ‘customized’ haircut aka ‘lived in hair’.
Anh Co 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.”
