GLAAD Media Awards LA 2015

We’ve been blessed with over 25 years in business, 5 salons, over 150 wonderful employees and 1000’s of loyal clients.

GLAAD15-12

It’s important to us to show our gratitude by giving back. For the past few years and in 3 different cities, we have participated in the GLAAD media awards which recognizes and uplifts the LGBT community in tv, movies, music and radio.  While styling hair backstage for this event is rather glamorous, we feel honored to be a part of a powerful humanitarian movement and help out any way we can.  The team led by Creative Director Moises Villa, got to bump shoulders with the likes of Kerry Washington, Channing Tatum, Ellen Degeneres, Portia de Rossi and many more. Shu Uemura showed support by donating styling products for 100 celebrity gift bags. For more information on GLAAD, visit glaad.org.

Mythology Holiday Party 2014

DiPietroTodd_271

Mythology = Glamour. Literally everyone looked so beautiful at our annual Xmas party. We honestly expected a little more debauchery with this creative crowd but we had the sexiest and prettiest gods and goddesses to hang out with all night. The 80’s, Gianni Versace vibe created by Michael O’Rourke (dPT’s Mill Valley salon star colorist and our resident party planner) made this party a big hit and just added to the mix of frivolity at the Supperclub.
You outdid yourself again Michael.

Thank you!

Ethereal -Assistant Soiree

ETHEREAL_SOIREE-29

The assistants gleaned their inspiration from the artist James Turell who experiments with light and space and elegantly translated his work into minimalist cuts and color.  Stylists and colorists from all over the bay area gathered at Public Works to get a glimpse of the show that diPietro Todd assistants spend months producing, getting the hair, clothes, music and video just right. Andrew was heard saying it was one of our best assistant shows to date and how it felt so fresh and modern.
The images speak for themselves……Brilliant!

We’re so proud of you….

Love,
Kim and Andrew Todd

CCA 2014 Annual Fashion Show

hair style

The CCA fashion show, once again proved itself to be a fantastic showcase for young up and coming designers.  Parading in their new space, the designers took many unexpected turns in their creative approach to modern dressing.  Texture and color were the main theme and of course, our creative director Moises Villa selected the most elegant perfect look that suited all of the elements.

Bravo…

diPietro Todd at Glaad Media Awards

As a hairdressing company that was founded in the 80s in San Francisco, we have witnessed the LGBT community take great strides and have always supported it’s advancement. Whether it’s contributing to the fight against AIDS or supporting marriage equality, we have watched and cheered as the world has changed. So it is no surprise that we were thrilled to participate in both the LA and NY GLAAD Media Awards this year.

GLAAD

GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), is an organization that protects and uplifts its community. Each year they hold the GLAAD Media Awards to reward actors, movies, directors and personalities who have accurately and positively portrayed the LGBT in the media. Our part was to provide hair touch ups backstage and celebrity gift bags courtesy of Kerastase and Shu Uemura as well as silent auction items. We needed some of our most talented stylists so we brought along Creative Director Moises Villa, educators Nona Zandinejad, Amy Hsueh, Diana Luong and John Mok. We had a ton of fun and were thrilled to style hair for a great cause.

Academy

diPietro Todd Academy

DEIGN_AMITA_BRIAN-23

The diPietro Todd Academy is “The Best Kept Secret” according to Karim Dossa, Education Director for Rene Furterer.
Honestly, hearing this was music to my ears since the educators at the academy work hard to perfect their craft so that they can demonstrate their knowledge to people at the highest level.  We keep the classes small for our students and more than anything we want them to leave with a new cutting or color technique. They can add these new skills to their repertoire in the salon where they come from to make them more successful and their careers more enjoyable. diPietro Todd is all about education and we love to share.

Cheers to our new Academy Director of Cutting- Debi Alley who will be joining Shelly Mohr, the Academy Director of Color.

Hope to see you in 2014…..

25th Element

The pressure is on every year to top all of our fun and fantastic Xmas parties past but Andrew and Michael O’Rourke (party planner and Palo Alto colorist) have done it again and they went BIG at the Infusion lounge.   Ideas started flowing in January of 2013 with our desire to celebrate our silver anniversary while fantasizing about where we’ll be in 25 more years.   Just returning from London’s Salon International hair show, Andrew was inspired by parametric design and incorporated his ideas along with Michael’s into this years theme—The Future is Now dPT 2038.  It’s always hard to pick the top 3 winners for the evening, we had a 5th Element Lilu look alike 1st place winner- Maclaine DeFelice, Maggie Ponicsan  who looked like she jumped out of a video game and John Mok who called himself a futuristic space elf.  The amazing D.J. Chris Clouse kept everyone dancing all the way into the future.
