Meet Scout Society member Michael Angelo.
How do you pay the rent?
Thinking about how people look! I have a salon and “beautique” in New York City called Wonderland Beauty Parlor. I’m a hairdresser and a makeup artist and a photographer and a designer. Here’s a shot from a workshop I developed for Oribe Hair Care.  Phew!
How else do you fill your days?
I train a few days a week at Belleon Body with Carlos Leon. He’s very inspiring. (A beauty guru still needs a fitness guru.)  Scouting brands, talent, and inspiration for Wonderland is a constant. And I’ve recently begun to explore filmmaking, and that’s really exciting! My first project will debut this Easter.
Who are you following these days and why?
greyeravintage — A style guru.
somalymam — Keeps me in check.
houseofexposure — Inspires the Hell out of me.
ezzaoconnor — Erin O’Connor is breathtaking. 
jdavidmckenney — Sees inside my mind and then draws it on paper.
advancedstyle — Gives me something to look forward to. 
Let’s get Scouting. A self-portrait?
I’m visiting Yayoi Kusama’s “Fireflies on the Water” at the Whitney Museum. 
Your medicine cabinet?
Potions not lotions. I feel like creams are suffocating, so I use oils and serums to look after my skin. 
Your significant other, lover, or BFF?
My darling husband, Scott MacDougall, PhD candidate at Fordham, making me look smart by association. 
This is Blue, a rescue from Rikers Island; for real — my “gangsta” cat. And then there’s Bartleby, a teeny toy fox terrier who loves pop art. [10, 8]
What one photo do you refuse to delete from your phone and why?
I was in Capri last summer doing hair and makeup for a wedding. Every day I woke up to perfection all around me, grateful that I was somewhere so special because of my work. One day the sea was “too angry” (as the locals called it) for swimming, and I must have been visibly disappointed. An Italian woman reminded me that nothing’s perfect and suggested I refocus my energy and enjoy something else on Capri instead. It’s a little reminder of that, especially on the days when the job isn’t a fun one. 
What’s the last thing you ate?
A Cubano panino from Sullivan Street Bakery, quite possibly the most heavenly sandwich in NYC! 
Your morning commute?
I live in West Chelsea and work in the Meatpacking District. I walk the High Line to and from, and it’s miraculous what a little stroll above the noise and traffic will do.
