Having rockstar hair starts with attitude, but requires the proper tools. Finally, you can have both with Hair Religion’s designer hair dryers. Created by one of Los Angeles’s hottest stylists, Tomi Ilic, the state-of-the-art “tattoo design” dryers produce negative ions to help dry hair faster, prevent frizzing and add luster and shine to be captured by the spotlight.
From David Cassidy to Tthe Runaways” Cherie Currie to “Pacific Blue” star Paula Trickey, Hollywood celebs love the hair dryers which not only give salon quality hair, but are a great tool to sculpt personality through hair. The ergonomic design makes them light enough for ease of use over long periods of drying, and the dryers nurture the hair while styling it so there is no breakage.
Although they were invented for professionals, they are now available to the public. “It’s our mission to cater to both hair stylists and artists with Hair Religion’s dryers,” explains Ilic, noting even musicians are getting into the craze.
Singer-songwriter Hayley Taylor, who has been hailed by Entertainment Tonight as “a rising star of the indie music scene,” loves the dryers’ striking design and power. “The dryer is lightweight, leaves my hair smooth and silky,” says Taylor, “and it is a great accessory to tote as well.”
Ilic has been doing Taylor’s hair throughout her music and acting career. Taylor’s music has recently been featured on shows like CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother,” the CW’s “Privileged,” USA Network’s “Royal Pains,” and in a Levi’s ad. Taylor’s songs are gaining high-profile exposure because of their appealing blend of pop song craft and vulnerable emotion.
The dryers have been an instant hit at salons as well, which was the original target audience. “I developed the ultimate blower for professionals after I grew tired of using the same old boring hair dryers, that weren’t reliable or even attractive,” explains Ilic. “So after years of experience, I created a thermal appliance that fuses form and function with a look like no other. It works beautifully for salon professionals and those who need salon quality care. It has just blown everyone away.”
Hair Religion CEO and co-founder David Bernard says the dryer was “made to Ilic’s exacting design and technology specifications in Italy, with a 1750 watt AC motor. It has a non-scratch surface with a patented technique that ensures the design will not fade. It not only looks like no other dryer but also performs to the rigors of daily salon use.”
In a recent photo shoot for a Dutch television show, Ilic and Taylor posed for some photos and were interviewed about the dryers. Clinton H. Wallace, acclaimed photographer and up and coming film producer of, “Layla” (2009 Pan African Film Festival), and “Machete Joe,” took the photos. Encino’s “Beauty, Body, & More” makeup artist Inga Koroleva did Taylor’s makeup. Ilic of course did her hair, using the Hair Religion dryer.
Taylor’s favorite part of the photo shoot? Getting one of the dryers to take on the road with her on her next tour.
Taylor’s new album, “One Foot in Front the Other,” produced by Dan Romer (Ingrid Michaelson) will be released later this year. It features performances by an all-star cast of players, including Michael Chaves (John Mayer), Adrienne Woods (Jonas Brothers), Elliot Jacobson (Ingrid Michaelson), and producer Marshall Altman (Kate Voegele).
