Celebrity hair stylist, emerging actor and now a slip® ambassador
Glen Coco Oropeza is a famous hair stylist who has his finger on the pulse of editorial style, with an eye for innovation and an attention to detail.
Honestly, I’m obsessed with the slip sleep masks. I bring it in my bag every time I travel.
1. Favourite slip® product?
Honestly, I’m obsessed with the slip sleep masks. I bring it in my bag every time I travel. It’s so helpful to catch some Z’s while on the go, and they’re so comfortable.
2. What’s your secret to finding balance, if at all?
For me it’s meditation. I meditate every day and I do breathwork. It helps to ground me when I’m feeling anxious. It also helps me to align my thoughts and stay focused and organized.
3. Biggest pinch me moment in life so far?
Anytime I get to travel internationally is such a pinch me moment. As a kid I never got to travel to Europe, Asia, South America, or Africa. Since being a celebrity hair stylist, I’ve gone to almost every continent thanks to my amazing clients. There’s nothing better than traveling.
4. What do you want to be remembered for?
I just want to be known for being a genuine human. Someone who spread as much love as possible. A good storyteller. An entertainer. An artist. Someone who cared about everyone’s success. Someone who rooted for you.
5. Life without your current career - where would you be, what would you be doing? What’s your sliding doors career?
My dream in life has always been to be an actor. I’ve always had a massive fear around it and the pandemic was my awakening. Without having time off during the pandemic, I think I would still be so dependent on everyone else’s success to be successful. Now I’m pursuing all of my passions at once and I’ve never felt happier.
6. One beauty product you can't live without?
A hair paste. My hair looks awful without product, and I always need some sort of texturizing paste for my hair.
7. Favourite local restaurant in your hometown?
I haven’t been in so long but I remember loving this restaurant in Downtown York, PA named The Left Bank. It’s the fanciest place in my hometown. I also love this place called The White Rose. It’s more casual but also delicious!
8. What is your morning ritual?
Bathroom. Drink water. Brush teeth. Shave or trim my facial hair. Shower. Most of my time is spent on skin care. It’s an obsession. A little bit of makeup. A generous amount of cologne. Get dressed. Feed and let out my dogs. Rush to work because I’m probably late.
9. What is your evening ritual?
Oh I’m bad at evening rituals. Typically involves taking out my contacts. Putting on mood lighting in my bedroom. Brushing my teeth and typically I just use a face wipe at night or I don’t even wash my face lol.
10. What is something you are looking forward to?
I’m excited for acting to fully pick up again. I really want to do a beautiful art film or short film. I’m also writing a screenplay so I’m excited to keep working on that. I’m also looking forward to traveling more personally and not just for work.
