Exclusively Fashion Magazine:
Can you tell me about your background as a hair stylist
and makeup artist?
I started my career at Vidal Sassoon in Munich and
decided then to travel a lot and work as a freelance
beauty editor for different Magazines. While staying in
New York I became acquainted
with Kevyn Aucoin and I also began to work with
make-up. I assisted him a long time until I got homesick
and went back to Germany.
I know that you are the ambassador for Schwarzkopfâs
and expert. How did you obtain that opportunity?
I think Schwarzkopf as an innovative company knows
that the best way to develop new styles and ideas is to
work together with a specialist from the beauty
industry. It keeps them at the market and the consumers
keep a face in mind they know and they have trust in.
Schwarzkopf as a brand is a piece of German
„contemporary history“ and I always have been in contact
with them. Well and you don’t choose the company, they
I love the fashion spread that you collaborated with
Tush magazine. Can you tell me the concept behind model
Toni Garrn is a new Claudia Schiffer; that doesn't
mean she could replace her. But her natural beauty, her
whole look reminds me of Claudia in the early Nineties.
So I think the best thing to do is to assign this whiff
of Schiffer aura for Toni as well. Naturally sexy.

Can you describe your personal style?
There have been times when I really made a big thing
