So you’re striving to be a Celebrity Stylist? Well according to Celebrity Stylist André Hammonds you’re already doing it wrong, recently as a guest on on Fox Soul André let us know, “you should be striving to just be a good stylist.” With any career you have to go into it with an intention of passion. This a reoccurring theme throughout André’s career. As the founder of several businesses and initiatives you’ll find the core of each stem from an authentic love for what he does.
Take notes André has built one hell of a resumé for himself. You may have seen him sending back plates as a judge on the The Shade Room’s, The Shady Brunch or a stylist to reality stars like Dorit Kemsley, Kat Tat and Heavyweight boxing champion, Deontay Wilder.
André’s style is luxurious and classic, and when working with clients he knows how to bring out their best, paying close attention to garments that accentuate their best features. This elevated eye for fashion has paved the way for incredible opportunities on well known platforms, but his personal catalogue is a series of self-made businesses including Shop Hem, a Luxury Men’s Boutique and an annual fashion show Slay the Runway--the proceeds for the show go to a cancer foundation in honor of his mother, who passed away from breast cancer.
André is working hard and showing aspiring designers and entrepreneurs that it’s all possible. Stay connected with André on Instagram, and don’t forget to support #blackowned businesses and shop , Shop Hem.
