In the Studio: Darius
“Darius knows what he wants when it comes to hair,” writes his mom Aline, Hairstory customer service agent, and she gladly indulges him, although his grandparents are more reluctant. The day that Aline came home from work with blue hair was an epiphany for four-year old Darius, so she decided to bring him to our Studio the next time she visited colorist Julia – as it happened, the day following New York’s Pride parade. He decided he would get his hair dyed too.
Darius has many queer (adult) friends, and he understands that love knows no gender. So he decided to support his friends by wearing a rainbow in his hair. When Julia started applying the dyes, he was very particular about their order and placement. Like Mom says: The kid knows what he wants.
