<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b> <br />
<br><br />
Graphic and modern/futuristic but with a rock and roll vibe. Creating a look as an artist gives me a lot of freedom because there’s a sense of escapism.<br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-gig Beauty Routine</b> <br />
<br><br />
I get pretty concerned having the whole look be cohesive from shoes to makeup to hair. My hair is pretty striking, so I tend not to do anything too crazy.

  • <b>DJ Dimepiece</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b> <br><br />
I'm all about blush colors in my outfits, accessories and even DJ gear. No matter what complexion you are, those colors are sure to make your skin pop and glow!<br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-gig Beauty Routine</b> <br><br />
 If I'm feeling flirty, I'll throw some curls in my hair to give body and attitude. If I'm feeling chic, I'll style some light layers or keep it simple and straight.

  • <b>DJ Hesta Prynn</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b> <br><br />
I like to juxtapose looks: conservative pieces like blazers and Chanel pearls with my signature bright red hair.<br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br> <br />
Lots of beach spray in my hair to get it big, red lipstick and powder.<br />

  • <b>DJ Shiva</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b><br>  <br />
My style is whatever I'm feeling on any given day. It's a blend of all sorts of elements I've picked up over the years, and it's constantly evolving. It's all about comfort.<br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br> <br />
I don't wear a lot of makeup, but I take my time with it. I keep my hair fairly simple: I flat-iron it, then use oil to sleek it out. Lastly, I tease the top to add volume.

  • <b>DJ Sugarcut</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b><br><br />
I’m low-maintenance but sexy … leggings, boots and form-flattering shirts. I like to show off my curves but still be comfortable since DJing requires one to be on her feet all night. <br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br><br />
I wash and condition my hair and apply loose powder, strobe cream, bronzing powder, eyeshadow and lip gloss. I always wear perfume – cKone is my current favorite.<br />

  • <b>DJ Eko</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b><br><br />
I love an edgy mixture of playful, athletic and high fashion, i.e. dresses with hoods and onesies with sneaker boots. <br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br><br />
It starts with checking my mood and seeing what kind of vibe I want to communicate. <br />
  • <b>DJ Eko</b><br><br />

<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b><br> <br />

<br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br><br />
 My beauty look is all au naturale as Catherine Ouellette and Sasha Fierce dolled up as DJ SynCity.<br />

Mr. Saxobeat – Alexandra Stan<br />
  • <b>DJ Alkimist</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b><br> <br />
Grunge-glam. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest in the ‘90s, I really latch onto the lumberjack style and add a bit of glam to it. I always wear heels, no matter where I’m going.<br><br />
 <br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br><br />
 I like to do a smoky eye with a bit of sparkle and occasionally add some shine or color to my lips. My hair is super straight, so I have to use a few tricks to give it body. <br />

<br><br />

  • <b>DJ Megan Taylor</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b><br> <br />
City chic with a somewhat classic twist. I tend to like a natural look, but when it’s time for me to spin, you can be sure you’ll see sexy eye makeup and sequins.<br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br> <br />
I usually rock my long red hair down and just straighten or curl it. I love fun lipstick and a great scent. <br><br />
  • <b>5 Songs I’m Playing Now:</b><br> <br />
Love U More (RAC Mix) – Sunday Girl<br><br />
Helena Beat – Foster the People<br><br />

  • <b>DJ Mirandom</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b><br><br />
Urban Wasp – patent leather boat shoes with tight jeans is my everyday look, but I like to dress up for events. My favorite designers are Missoni and DSquared. <br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br><br />
I like to mimic the vibe of the music I’m going to spin. I wear my hair up when I DJ because my headphones get in the way. Having one side of my head braided is a signature look.<br />
  • <b>DJ Mirandom</b><br><br />
<br><br />

Precious – Little Dragon<br><br />
Twice – Little Dragon <br><br />
Loft Music – The Weekend<br><br />

Anything from Theopholus London’s new album – it’s dope!<br />
  • <b>DJ Lady FX</b><br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Personal Style</b><br><br />
It’s a mashup of styles…just like my musical taste! Girl next door who chooses trendy but classic pieces with a Bohemian flair. <br><br />
<br><br />
<b>Pre-Gig Beauty Routine</b><br><br />
It depends on my mood and the gig. For corporate events, just lip color, eyeliner and blush. For nightclubs, I kick it up a notch with mascara, gloss and fuller, sexier hair.<br />
