There’s something about Steve Aoki’s long, shiny hair that entices us all, including Arianna Huffington.
Huffington sat down with the electronic music extraordinaire to chat about his new documentary, “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead.” But Huffington had some more “simple” and “practical” questions for the musician, starting with his hair. “How much of a time-consuming ritual is it to actually wash it and take care of it?” she asked.
“As a punk kid that grew up where — when we were on tour, we would shower [whenever] we possibly could, which would sometimes be, like, once a week,” Aoki said. “It’s not like I’m following the same tradition as I was when I was a kid, but I feel lucky, because this is, like, Japanese genes right here.”
But there’s no big blow-drying process that Aoki does to make his hair silky smooth. Just lots of conditioner. “But the most essential thing is getting a brush,” he said.
Huffington went on to ask Aoki about his caffeine consumption, energy drinks — which he says he “tries to avoid” — and whether he remembers his dreams. Check it out in the video above.
