Shawn Caminiti Pyfrom was originally included in the November 27, 2006 issue of People Magazine that named George Clooney as The Sexiest Man Alive.

Shawn was included in the Sexy At Every Age section for the 20 Somethings.

In truth, Shawn barely made the 20s cut ouff. The 5'7" actor celebrated his 20th year on August 16th. Born in 1986, he was reared in Tampa, Florida but according to IMDB, Shawn left for LA at the tender age of seven.

While Shawn instantly showcased his acting abilities in some venues as commercialsOn playing a gay character on Desperate Housewives: "What I really liked about it was that he was already developed as this strong little bastard who runs over old women, and now he's developing into a gay youth. I'm glad they had that other story line first, so people didn't categorize him as 'that gay kid'." (Out magazine, April 2006)

Shawn is originally from FL. but started coming out to LA when he was 7 years old, along with his brother, Chris and sister, Amber. He has a natural talent for acting and a real love for the entertainment business. He has two very supportive parents that have helped him fulfill his dream. His future plans are to go to college to become an entertainment lawyer.

While he definitely deserves kudos for the spectacular haircuts, style and fabulous updos that he has whipped up over the years, he does not work with color.

Ken understands, as he explained to me the very first time he met me "I only work on women's hair and I do not do any color work".

Yes, he might cheat a little on that score and has been known to color his own and his mom's hair but in the celeb hair trade, his gorgeous celebrity girls get their color fix elsewhere.

Ken has been known to partner with famed colorist, Rita Hazan, who he met in the trenches at the salon of another famed celebrity hairdresser in New York.

Contrary to media reports, Ken has never created the range of blonde or brunette hues worn by the Simpson Sisters. While he publicly declared his pride over Ashlee's "going brunette from a box" he did not actually color her hair.

Rita Hazan is famous for her magical color tricks that she has dispensed on Jennifer Lopez, Jessica and Ashlee Simpson. Rita also colors Tina Simpson, mother of the Simpson sisters.

While the tabloid and related media may wag their fingers at Ken for "being unfaithful" to Jessica and Eva for his work with other celebrities, Ken has been working with many of the celebrities that he has pulled "unfaithfulness attacks" for many years.

Understanding his responsibility to his "girls" to honor and protect their private lives, he often does not blow dry and tell. Nor would he ever tolerate any of his close family, friends or other confidantes from ever letting a whisper of innuendo escape regarding any of his girls that do not want the media to know he is their mane man.

While the rags profess celebs are secretive about their strand rendezvous with Ken, the truth of the situation is actually more troublesome. As the results of his spectacular work with his many famous women have been documented, the papparrizi, aka the Papps, have targeted Ken with their frightening lens.

Never wanting to compromise his celebrity relationships, Ken takes extreme measures to protect the privacy of his beloved girls. These measures have included fleeing

for his life in life-threatening auto chases to throw the Papps off his path.

He has been featured in numerous magazines, and on “Oprah,” as well as on the sets of MTV and VH-1.

Seasonal Hair Care Tips

Ken is constantly educating his clients as well as the general public about seasonal hair care:

Winter Hair Care Tips

“Hair tends to be more dry and dull in the winter months.

It becomes dehydrated from the added heat we use inside, plus we tend to take warmer showers,” says Ken.

“Dehydrated hair tends to make color look faded. In order to bring new life into your dull hair you must hydrate. I recommend introducing a thicker conditioner into your routine to alternate with your normal. Once to twice a week should do.”

Spring Hair Care Tips

Spring color trends are less about light and more about bright!” says Ken. “Hair that is too light can look dry and make skin appear dull. Instead, choose a color or highlights that enhance and brighten your current color.

For example instead of platinum hair opt for a light honey blonde. Like I just had Ashlee Simpson’s hair colored from platinum to a pale honey blonde because it tends to look very healthy.” He also recommends that girls-on-the-go choose a base color not too far off from your own and add highlights to brighten.

“This way you can avoid highlighting every time and still get the same light effect,” he says. “By choosing a base color close to your own, when your roots come in it won’t be as bad and you can get away with a little extra time in between. Think Giselle!”

Paves Professional Use Tips

Ken is singled minded in both his dedication to his girls along with his desire to impart wisdom to all of his clients about the need to grow healthy, vibrant hair.

His signature product line, Paves Professional is built around "the foundation of healthy hair".

It’s also important from season to season to use the right products to maintain your new hue.

And what does Ken favor? The new Kerastase color line, for one. “I’m obsessed with it! It instantly makes colored hair look bright and shiny.” Be sure to make caring for your color a top priority too.

For people with fine hair Ken suggests concentrating the heavier conditioner mid shaft to end, and recommends Paves Professional Conditioning Creme.

“I also apply a light shine serum to keep the hair moisturized and supple, like Paves Professional Essential Oil Shine Serum,” he says.

“Apply to wet hair after shampooing and conditioning before other styling products. Also apply more once your hair is dry for added hydration and shine.”

Ken also advises people to consider not washing your hair daily, or washing at night and air drying to avoid damage and drying that can come from excessive washing and blow drying. For more information on Ken Paves, his namesake salon, and products, call 1-866-469-4247.
