As those of you who follow Davroe on Instagram would know, we have been lucky enough to team up with International Stylists to the Stars, Ricardo Ferrise.
Ricardo is known across Hollywood for his revolutionary talents in both hair and makeup. Named Viva Glam’s 2013 Artist of the Year, he has proven that hard work and passion really can make your dreams come true.
These days Ricardo is one of the most sought after artist in Hollywood, having worked with Britney Spears, Fergie and toured with Katy Perry as her personal hair stylist. His amazing talent, positive attitude and work ethic have gained him a reputation second to none; a reputation that we can verify is 100% genuine.
Just recently we had the pleasure of sitting down with Ricardo to talk all things hair!
How did you start off in the Hairdressing/Make up industry?
I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, both my parents were in the beauty industry; my father was a barber and my mother was a hairdresser and part time Avon Lady. I guess you could say my love for hair and makeup was born from all the days spent watching them do what they loved!
It was around the age of 19, when I would regularly do hair and makeup for my friends and family, that I finally overcame my initial doubts and decided to go for it. So I moved to Hollywood, California at the age of 26 and the rest, as they say, is history.
Describe your signature look?
I am known for big, beautiful, sexy, messy hair and strong smokey eyes!
What is your favourite Davroe product? And why?
I LOVE Davroe Fibre creme, this is the best product! It is so versatile, it’s great for men or women and it’s great to shape a look. You need to understand how to use it and the proportion to use, but when you do this product is amazing, even on long hair!
Tell us about Katy Perry? How did you meet her, what was it like touring with her?
My best friend was working on her music video “This Is How We Do” and told me that she was interviewing for a hair stylist to travel with her on her world tour. I went for the interview, we talked for 30 minutes and the next day I got a call to let me know we were leaving the next week. I started off working on the dancers and then moved to Katy’s hair. We travelled for 2 years and 4 months, and it was the best time of my life.
Touring the world with Katy Perry; I had the opportunity to travel to beautiful places around the world like, South America, Thailand and Australia, I was there for 3 months. I met so many amazing people and I learnt a lot about myself, and this, in turn, made me a better person.
Tell us something about yourself that your followers wouldn’t know?
I am very grateful for and humbled by what I do, and I don’t think people know just how much I love my family, I am a huge family man.
It was an absolute pleasure getting to speak with Ricardo, we can’t wait to meet up with him when he’s down in Australia!
