Name: Marcellas Reynolds Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
Occupation: TV Host, Celebrity Stylist and Host of Street Styl’d and 60 Second Style Swap at Joyus.com
First Job: Salesperson at T. Edwards, a high-end womens clothing store. I was the only male salesman in the company & the #3 salesperson in the chain.
Dream Job: Hosting a re-boot of CNN’s Style with Elsa Clensch!
One Product Everyone Should Own: I’m a big fan of Latisse. I use it on my brows & love it! It works!
One Beauty Tip you learned from your mother: My mom taught me to pick a theme & commit! She had an Asian inspired bob with bangs and wore little Cheongsam tops. It was insanely gorgeous, fun & theatrical.
Recent Beauty Splurge: I just discovered Malin + Goetz! I brought it all. I love their all natural deodorant & lip balm. And the candles!
I don’t leave home without: 2 pairs of Tom Ford sunglasses, Mophie Juice Pack iPhone charger, Choward’s Violet Candies.
Drugstore Favorite: Smith’s Strawberry Lip Balm from Rosebud Perfume Co. It’s cheap & lovely!
Always in my fridge: Juices from Beverly Hills Juice Club. I love Apple Lemon Double Ginger!
Guilty Pleasure: Whole Body Cryotherapy! With WBC the body is exposed to ultra-low temperatures (-200 to -240 F) in a cryogenic sauna/chamber for a short duration of 1.5-3 minutes which lowers the client’s skin surface temperature significantly and stimulates receptors. You burn an additional 800 calories over the next 2 days!
Beauty Product that should be invented: A gel that turns grey hair back to its original color! My beard is going grey!
Beauty tip for our readers: I am constantly told I have beautiful skin. I drink tons of water, use DDF 5% Glycolic Wash a few times a week & do a Ren Glycolactic Renewal Mask once a week. I’m a glycolic acid junkie. I believe in cell turnover!
