Some of you might know that before I joined MC I was "Talent" for a TLC (the learning channel) show 10 years younger. The show will air on Thursday 10/20/05 at 10am or 1pm depending on your cable or satellite. Here is more information about the show. http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/10...rsyounger.html
For all those people who look older than they really are, for the women constantly being called, "Ma'am" when they are still young enough to be called, "Miss", or for those who don't want to go under the knife but know a more beautiful and more vibrant person lives within, take heart TLC has a series for you! 10 Years Younger takes one person and invites them to step inside the "big box" a soundproof display case placed along some of the busiest streets in one of the most appearance-driven cities in the world Los Angeles. As complete strangers critique our participant's looks and guess their age along with host Mark Montano, our glam squad of hairstylist Jenn MacDonald and make-up artist Damone Roberts are standing by in the studio with a plan to take a decade off the person's look in just 10 days. The glam squad is teamed with Hollywood's finest doctors and dentists schooled in the latest non-surgical dermatological and dental innovations. Finally, our participant returns to the big box to see if a new set of complete strangers pegs them at an age that is 10 Years Younger.
HOST - Mark Montano is the energetic, young and undeniably cool new host of 10 Years Younger. His creative musings have manifested successfully in the worlds of fashion, interior design and writing, making him a refreshing example of innovation and a beacon of creativity. Living and working from his mantra of "creativity can be fun," he has the contagious ability to inspire women, teens and makeover fans across the country to express themselves. Mark's creative life began in his quiet childhood home of La Junta, Colorado, where at the young age of 14, he began designing fun clothing for his mother. Upon graduating from Colorado State University with a bachelor's degree in business, he ventured to New York City where he continued his education at the Fashion Institute of Technology earning a master's degree in costume history. An internship at Oscar de la Renta gave him an appreciation for exquisite fabrics and the inspiration to begin his own line. Always developing new skills as a designer, Mark draws inspiration from the quirky flavor of New York City especially the East Village where he has established his home and flagship boutique. As the youngest member ever to be inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Mark designs a signature collection of empowering downtown couture. A master of mixing fanciful ideas, colors and luxurious fabrics, his vibrant ensembles are sold across the world.
When Mark Montano joined Cosmo Girl! Magazine as a contributing editor in 1990, his magic touch became known to teens everywhere. His creative room makeovers makes his monthly column "Cool Room" the must-read of every issue. Montano also writes a weekly column in over 70 newspapers across the country entitled "Make your Mark" which is syndicated by Knight Ridder Publications. In early 2002, Mark continued inspiring teens with the publication of his first book Super Suite, a collection of 15 room makeovers of actual teenagers. Its continued success has prompted Montano to begin a second book. TLC viewers know Mark best as the fun loving designer on While You Were Out. While designing on WYWO, Mark transformed rooms for Penn & Teller, Shannon Elizabeth and Lisa Leslie, who are just a few of the celebrities he has worked with to change a space for their loved ones.
GLAM SQUAD - Jenn MacDonald is more than just a hairstylist. Jenn is a specialist in the art of hair color, design and cut correction, and she is known for her complete hair transformations. Her unique approach and careful technique in applying hair extensions causes minimal damage to the hair shaft, allowing them to become an exciting mainstream part of almost anyone's styling regimen. As a colorist, she is a master with complete command of this tricky craft. Add years of experience, keen instincts, and a passion for the aesthetic, and you get Jenn MacDonald a leader in the industry who raises the bar across the board and always does it in style. Ambitious and eccentric (even as a child), Jenn's fascination with hair was a distinct part of her character as early as age 8, when she began coloring her own hair. She has always admired people who expressed themselves unapologetically through their personal style. Most notably, her style icons are Dolly Parton and Björk. From the sophisticated to the outrageous, it was the opportunity to reveal personality through appearance that inspired Jenn to learn all she could about hair design. MacDonald began her education at the Graham-Webb Academy for Hair in Washington, D.C. After graduating, Jenn worked to build a strong clientele at the well-known Bogart Salon in Georgetown. Her colorful, bold personality won her lots of attention and quickly put her skills in demand as a leading stylist in the D.C metro area. It was several years later that Jenn moved to Los Angeles to put her talents to use in the entertainment industry. The move opened up a wealth of opportunities, including work in film and television, a valuable internship at Wigworks Studio, the opportunity to play a key role in the opening of Jonathon Antin's Beverly Hills salon, and her recent move to A.T. Tramp in Beverly Hills. Whether creating a hairpiece for Britney Spears, coloring extensions for Charlie's Angels Full Throttle, styling hair for an AT&T commercial, or accommodating actresses like Joan Allen on a movie set, Jenn MacDonald has done some of her most outstanding work for film, television and commercials. MacDonald has designed hair (in whole or in part) for celebrities such as Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Linda Hamilton, Colin Farrell, Mariel Hemingway, James Franco, Tobey Maguire, Drew Barrymore, the cast of Six Feet Under and more. Jenn MacDonald's work is not just a celebration of what is created, but also the joy it brings to others
Damone Roberts is considered the most gifted artist in the eyebrow business. His talent for sculpting the "perfect arch" has graced the faces of hundreds of celebrities and thousands of the world's most beautiful people. His knack for producing perfect brows has left him little downtime and in very high demand. So, it was only a matter of time before Damone opened his own flagship eyebrow salon Damone Roberts Beverly Hills. Hailed as the "Eyebrow King" by journalists and his devoted clientele, Damone's artistry has been heralded worldwide in publications such as Vogue, In Style, USA Today, US Weekly, The Wall Street Journal, Cosmopolitan, Essence, Good Housekeeping, Allure, Newsweek and countless others. Being recognized globally for his work also gives Damone great pause for how far he's come. Born and raised in the rough and tumble projects of Oakland, Calif., Damone was driven to follow his dream to become an artist. After a stint at Rutgers University, Damone discovered his passion for art was more a love of beauty. Damone landed his first job in a Los Angeles makeup studio, then later moved to Beverly Hills, where he discovered his gift for doing makeup also made him famous for plucking the perfect arch. Damone believes every person is beautiful in his or her own way, but does note that 90 percent of all women have the wrong brows for their facial structure. Damone says, "It's the most underestimated important feature on the face."
