Sexiest Hairdresser

Steve Husted at 5 Color Cowboy

How did you react when you heard you won Sexiest Hairdresser?

I assumed it was my mom who did it. My mom's a nurse, so I thought, well, maybe she drugged up her patients and got them to vote for me. But when I asked her she was all, "Umm, no ..."

Seriously, at first I wasn't so into this whole thing, but then my boss reminded me that I'm trying to buy a house, and this might get me some new clients; so I figured, what the hell.

You guys at 5 Color Cowboy are pretty popular. Someone there named PJ came in third.

No way, really? He's my best friend. I can't wait to tell him. When he heard I won he was totally ragging on me, and I said, "Dude, you might just win next year, so you'd better be cool about it."

When I walk into work now, they're all like, "You feel some sexiness in the air here?" I have to beat 'em to it and make fun of myself.

So now that you're all sexy, what are your plans for Valentine's Day?

I'm working at the hair salon, and then I'm DJing all night.

Where do you DJ?

At Velvet Shop, downtown San Jose. I'll be there until 5 in the morning.
