Michael John (M.J.) Derricott
How many Hollywood hairstylists are there in Los Angeles? No one like Michael John (M.J.) Derricott, who is dedicating his life to his Makeovers That Matter.
No stranger to the idea of “giving back”, it was while spending his Tuesdays styling hair for residents of Gettlove, an organization that provides permanent supportive housing to the homeless in Hollywood that M.J. first conceived Makeovers That Matter:
“Helping these women feel better about themselves was such an amazing and fulfilling experience, it really inspired me to try and take it just a little bit further."
Derricott, a stylist for over 20 years, has worked in prestigious salons as Umberto’s of Beverly Hills, B2V and QVC personality Nick Chavez. Also a stylist to the A list, he was the go-to guy for the Oscars for two years. He is known for his appearances on E! Style Network “How Do I Look? He currently is a regular on The Hallmark Channel’s “Home and Family” for Makeovers That Matter, a subject that is much more meaningful than the fluff of just doing and discussing hair/hair products.
Derricott is the owner of MJ Hair Salon inside Salon Indo in West Hollywood where his mixed breed Maxi is at his side.
