an old interview with lou in 2013
Grazia Daily: Do 1D really need that much hair and makeup?
Lou : Noooo they’re pretty much good to go… they need haircuts a lot though and we never have much time so I try and do like 1 per shoot/show and by the time I’ve done all 5 its back to the first for a tidy up.
Grazia Daily: How long does it take to get the boys ready before they go on stage?
Lou : I usually only have 1 hour but they hardly have any make up so I can spend most of that on their hair.
Grazia : What’s the secret to getting Harry’s infamous ‘do?
Lou : Harry wakes up like that! Sometimes I don’t even see him before a shoot, or Liam especially when he had his shaved head.
Grazia Daily: Which boy is the most bothered with his hair/demands most of your attention?
Lou : None of them ever want their hair done! I spend the most time on Louis and Zayn because they let me do different things all the time.. whereas the others we keep consistent.
Grazia Daily: Which product do the boys always try to pocket from your kit?
Lou: Shampoo… I use the Bumble Seaweed one, or toothpaste that goes missing a lot. And (not a product but) phone chargers!
Grazia Daily: What’s been the most controversial hairstyle you’ve created on one of the boys?
Lou : Liam’s shaved head I suppose… It was my favourite though :)
Grazia Daily: Are there any looks you want to try out on the boys?
Lou : I wanna revisit the 90s undercut but none of them will let me.
Grazia Daily: When you’re not busy styling others, what’s your hair routine like?
Lou : I have high maintenance hair! I have extensions which are amazing but you need to look after them and style them properly so they don’t look like extensions.
Grazia Daily: Are there any products you can’t live without?
Lou: I can’t live without Max Factor calorie 2000 mascara and Barry M black eyeliner.. Cheap as chip and all I need!
Grazia Daily: What are your vices?
Lou: Sleeping in and listening to one direction songs when I’m not at work.. Bit embarrassing really!
