Theodore Leaf is the real life story of a small town boy who against all odds worked to find success in Hollywood. The root of his inspiration began with a wig from the store window of his family’s bridal salon in rural Ohio, which sparked into a passion for the art of transformation. After completing his studies at Paul Mitchell he made his first big splash into the world of entertainment as the youngest contestant on Bravo’s Shear Genius.
The show opened new windows for Theodore and landed him a coveted spot as a top stylist at Sally Hershberger Salon in West Hollywood. Since then Theodore’s title has shifted from “hairstylist” to a man of many trades, still growing today. Having never looked back, Theodore worked both sides of the lens producing his own YouTube channel featuring numerous tutorials reaching 5,000,000 views. He has been featured on television shows including NBC’s Fashion Star, E!’s Fashion Police and Style Network’s How Do I Look?
In 2013 Theodore became the Beauty Editor at Large for Glamour Magazine and has represented the brand & contributed several articles focusing on digital beauty influencers. He is the host of the popular digital series Elevator Makeover and the upcoming Bad Hair Day both produced by Conde Nast Entertainment.
