The Ones to Watch

NAME: Sunnie Brook
LOCATION: Silver Lake, CA
OCCUPATION: Celebrity hairdresser and beauty blogger, sunniebrook.com


This blogger-slash-hair stylist always has beauty on the brain.

WHAT FIRST PIQUED YOUR INTEREST IN BEAUTY? My first memories are of watching my mother get ready. She was a performer, so I watched her transform in front of my eyes: sequins, heels, big hair, eye makeup and red lips-it all seemed so magical to me. Much later, my mother noticed my interest in doing makeovers on myself, my siblings and my dolls and suggested I go to beauty school.

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START YOUR BLOG?
I’ve been in the beauty industry for more than 15 years, so I have clients from all over the world who ask me for advice. I wanted a way to help them, and I see my blog and YouTube channel as a way to do that.

WHO ARE YOUR BEAUTY AND STYLE ICONS?
Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot-both are effortlessly beautiful with a touch of glam.

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
Classic, effortless, playful and feminine.

WHAT ARE YOUR GO-TO BEAUTY BRANDS?
Laura Mercier, Kate Somerville, Head & Shoulders, Oribe, Paul Mitchell, Dior and Leonor Greyl.

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO WEAR YOUR BABY-G WATCH?
With Carmar jeans, a white T-shirt and my Veda leather jacket.

WHY DO YOU LOVE LIVING IN LA?
It’s full of creatives-artists, musicians, actors, writers-and it keeps me inspired.

ARE YOU A GO-WITH-THE-FLOW GIRL OR A PLANNER?
I’m pretty laid-back by nature, but I have to plan a lot in my life so everything gets done!

WHAT DOES YOUR BABY-G WATCH HELP YOU STAY ON TIME FOR?
My whole day. It gets me on set for photo shoots, to my salon clients’ service appointments and to events and meetings-all on time!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TIME OF DAY?
Sunset and bedtime.


NAME: Andrea Trujillo
LOCATION: Brentwood, CA
OCCUPATION: Owner and chief indulgence officer, A.sweeT.


This boutique owner expertly combines her two loves: candy and clothes.

WHAT FIRST PIQUED YOUR INTEREST IN FASHION?
I was just trying to keep up with my two big sisters and stylish parents. Fashion runs in the family!

WHAT IS YOUR FIRST STYLE-RELATED MEMORY?
Hitting up Esprit-the first designer label I loved- with my big sisters. Getting to shop there was such a treat and big deal as a five-year-old!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB?
I love that I get to be creative on a daily basis, whether it’s styling an outfit, coming up with a marketing idea or merchandising my store. With a concept like mine- candy and clothes-I can let my creativity run wild.

WHO ARE YOUR FASHION ICONS?
I gather inspiration from many different outlets and individuals. I think Nicole Richie, Olivia Palermo, Kate Moss and the Olsen twins do an incredible job of being stylish- and Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn are legends.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
I’m a little bit sugar and a little bit spice. I’m a tomboy at heart, so I like taking girlie pieces and toughening them up with something unexpected and rough around the edges.

WHAT ARE YOUR GO-TO FASHION BRANDS?
Lines I carry in my store: Torn by Ronny Kobo, Rebecca Taylor, Zimmermann, Parker and Rails, plus a few staples from Rag & Bone, Alexander McQueen and Chanel.

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO WEAR YOUR BABY-G WATCH?
With distressed jeans, a white tee, leather jacket and knockout shoes. My Baby-G fits perfectly in the mix.

ARE YOU A GO-WITH-THE-FLOW GIRL OR A PLANNER?
I am a planner-definitely a type A personality.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TIME OF DAY?
I love the morning, when it’s calm and quiet. I feel like I can accomplish and conquer anything I want.
