I met Aryeh at an art event out here in DC and was in awe of his beautiful RED rizos. I approached him immediately because honestly I have not seen hair like this on a man, only in magazines. So after my numerous complements, I asked if I can feature him and gave him my card. I have to tell ya, I was happy to get the e-mail saying “Tell me what you need.” So without further adieu- Meet Aryeh!
1. Name and where you are from?
My Name is Aryeh Schwartz, I am originally from Minnesota but recently moved to Washington, DC.
2. Tell us about yourself?
I’m 24 and I work full time as a preschool teacher and part time as a professional photographer.
3. I’m sure you have been approached about your curls- they are beautiful! Can you tell us a quick story about an encounter?
I happen to be the only redhead in my family. Growing up I got many jokes about being the milkman’s child and what not, mostly from my older brother. So one day we were at a mall and he was ranting on and on about how nobody liked my hair and it was ugly. Just a few minutes later as we went down some stairs, a lady stopped us and gave me a big speech that sounded something like this “WOW! Your hair is the most amazing thing I have ever seen! I would kill for that color and curls!” She went actually on for a few minutes. Once she left my brother gave me a hug and apologized, he never insulted my hair again.
4. How long have you been rockin’ yo rizos?
I grew my hair out a few times in middle and high school. Once I graduated high school, I shaved my head and have not cut it since.
5. What is your hair routine?
Ha! Everyone hates me for this part. I have a strict process: I shampoo with Head and Shoulders once every two weeks and condition using Clear scalp and hair therapy. After rinsing, I reapply a small amount of conditioner again with a light rinse before I get out. I then towel dry and pull my hair back with a headband for 45 minutes post shower, then put it in ponytail.
6. Where can we find you on social media?
