I keep a list of TikTok ideas on my phone. I have hundreds of ideas. They can come from so many different places, fan requests, scrolling through TikTok, but mostly from just my own boredom. Most of the ideas will be trashed though. I usually look through the list, then pick one for that day and create it. It’s a pretty simple process, to be honest. I try not to overthink it. From my experience, people on TikTok want to see raw, relatable content that isn’t too produced.
I’m sure you’ve seen people tagging you in videos saying, “Sorry, Brad Mondo.” How does it feel to be TikTok’s favorite hair guy?
It’s very flattering. I think the whole “I’m sorry, Brad Mondo” trend is hilarious. I hope nobody ruins their hair on purpose for me, though. That would make me very sad. I have the coolest job. I love being able to connect with people from around the world. Meeting fans in person is one of the best parts about my job, so I hope to do more of that when it’s safe.
Let’s talk about your style. What are you into fashion-wise at the moment?
I’m going through a chunky boot phase right now. Every chunky black boot I see, I snatch up. I’m super into the bell bottoms that I’ve seen so many guys rocking lately, looking to purchase a pair of my own. Designers I’ve been loving lately are Eckhaus Latta, Theo Philio, Ricky King, Angel Chen, Loewe, and Prada.
What’s the most special piece in your wardrobe?
The most special piece in my wardrobe right now are my Saint Laurent burgundy velvet pants. They fit like a glove and they make my butt look so perky. They’re also just so unique and beautifully crafted.
The first pair you mentioned comes from an amazing designer named Ricky King who hand-paints his garments. Those pants also have a matching blazer, I have a photo on my Instagram. I’m obsessed with the look! [The second] pants were definitely a look. They’re from Jaded London. At this time in my life, I was just searching for the next loudest garment I could find. Something that would scream hey, I’m here! I think I achieved that with these.
