Derek Westermeyer, Hair Hero

WHAT IS YOUR HAIR SPECIALTY? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SERVICE TO DO?
I specialize in finding a client’s perfect color and giving them seamless extensions. I love blondes, “brondes”, and lived-in color. I like to say I do color that is “impactful yet believable”. I am certified in Invisible Bead Extensions, a method that ensures completely hidden extensions without compromising scalp and hair health. My goal is to give my clients unclockable extensions to achieve their dream length and/or volume.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCT? WHY?
My favorite product is Session Spray Flex by Kevin Murphy. It is the perfect light, flexible hold hairspray that offers movement and crunch-free hold.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE STYLE ICON? WHY?
My style icon is Chris Appleton. He is responsible for so many celebrities’ iconic hairstyles such as JLO, Kim Kardashian, and so many more.

WHAT IS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN?
I am a vibrant Aries.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I would like people to know that I have a passion for makeup and skincare. I love trying new products and seeing what other products people are using, too. I would also like to note that I am extremely LGBTQ+ friendly!
