The Hair Sage
Many stylists can transform a woman's hair. Ken Paves can transform a woman's life. He gets to know each woman who sits in his chair and creates a style that suits not just her face but her personality, her career, her schedule. The results inspire confidence, charisma, power—and, of course, a lot of compliments. "Your most flattering hairstyle is the one that recognizes and celebrates who you really are," Ken told us as he worked with the women in this story. "It should make you feel strong and totally comfortable." Ken's first book, You Are Beautiful: A Beauty Guide for Real Women, comes out this month—and it's full of the inspiring, practical advice we love him for.
