Kelly Capuano

How long have you been in the industry?

I started modeling when I was 11, so for about 7 years now. 

Where are you from and where are you based now?

I am from LA, but I spend a lot of my time working in London nowadays.

How did you get your start in modeling?

I was randomly discovered by my Mother Agent at a birthday party. She saw potential, sent me to agencies, and it went from there.

Most memorable modeling experience?

My most memorable modeling experience is traveling to Japan for work when I was 12 and 13 during summer breaks. It was my first time really working as a model and such a cool way to spend my summers.

Interests/hobbies?

I love cooking, any kind of sports, and I love doing DIY projects, especially involving furniture and clothing. 

Fun or interesting fact about you most people don’t know?

This probably isn’t a “fun fact” but I am missing both my pinky toenails :0 which is pretty interesting.

If you had to be reincarnated as an animal, which would it be?

Probably a bird so I could fly, that would be pretty cool. 

What’s your desert island playlist?

Anything Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Single food you can’t live without?

Sauerkraut, I could survive off of it. 

Name the movie you’ve seen so many times you can almost recite it.

High School Musical, thanks to a tiny DVD collection and a long vacation.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A singer/actress, but more specifically I wanted to be Hannah Montana. I got the hair right, at least.

If you could visit anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would it be?

I would visit Australia, I’ve heard so much about it and it’s just so different from home while still being a fashionable, modern place.

What is the last thing you binge-watched?

LoveSick on Netflix, such a good series. 

Coffee or tea?

Both, but ALWAYS coffee, sometimes tea. 

Describe your dream hair.

HEALTHY!!!

What is your favorite everyday go-to hairstyle? 

I love having two French braids in, that way it’s cute and stays out of my face. 

Air dry or blow dry?

Blow Dry always.

Biggest hair challenge?

My hair has been affected by all the dyeing I’ve had to do over the years so its health is my biggest concern. 

Who is your celebrity hair crush?

Jennifer Lawrence has beautiful hair and always switches up the color which is so cool. 

What is the craziest thing you have ever done to your hair?

Dying it purple, that was pretty out of my comfort zone. 

Do you have any favorite hair tools, products or treatments?

Olaplex is AMAZING for damaged hair and also I am a huge fan of the R+Co dry shampoo, it smells great and doesn’t leave residue. 

What is your favorite hair trend? 

I love the slicked back look. I don’t wear it much but it looks so amazing on almost everyone. 

Any secret tips, styling tricks or home remedies you use on your hair?

My secret tip is to comb through it in the shower when your conditioner is in so it’s not tangled when you get out.
