KIT CORNER : SterileLight – Illumicide Disinfecting Case
For as long as Camille Friend can remember, she has wanted to be in the beauty business. Raised in a family of hairstylists, she spent her childhood in salons developing skills and product knowledge. By the age of 17, Friend moved to Los Angeles from her hometown of Tempe, Arizona, and began a professional hairstyling career that has already spanned over two decades.
An Emmy Award nominee and member of both the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Television Academy, Friend’s diverse and impressive film, television, print and music video credits read like a well-developed script. Recent projects include X-Men: The New Mutants, Tenet, Charlie’s Angels, Black Panther, Detroit, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2, The Hateful Eight, Dreamgirls, Captain America: Civil War, Django Unchained, Miles Ahead and The Help.
She has designed hair looks for all eras, from the pop past to the fantastical future and many stops in between. Friend’s expertise with lace front wigs has earned her a reputation for excellence with period looks and led to working with an impressive list of luminary entertainers such as Elizabeth Banks, Samuel L. Jackson, Julianne Moore and Don Cheadle, to name a few. A coveted position with Sebastian International as a platform instructor and color specialist, combined with Vidal Sassoon and John Atchinson training to learn and master precision haircutting techniques, helped prepare Friend for her success in the entertainment industry. New ventures in product development and the launch of Hair Scholars assure that her star continues to rise.
