We had the good fortune of connecting with Ratino Sherrod and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ratino, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success/brand is making others happy and feel good about them selves! I’ve always felt my best when I have a haircut and a nice outfit on, so I put that feeling to use and decided to become a wardrobe stylist so others could experience that feel good feeling!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What keeps me busy professionally I’d say is motivation and inspiration. I get inspired by everyday life which makes me want to create/work which keeps me busy. Staying busy is very important to me because I feel like if I’m not busy, I’m available or I’m wasting time.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’d probably take them to LA. I love LA. I feel like LA is the perfect city for everything. It’s a city, they have beaches(Santa Monica, Malibu, Huntington Beach, Venice, etc.), parks(MacArthur Park and Griffith Park), trail runs(Runyon, Westridge, Ernest Regional Park Loop Trail, etc), museums(LA Country Museum, The Getty, Natural History, The Broad which is actually one of my personal favs, and amazing restaurants(Nobu, Catch, Tao, Sugar Fish, Lemonade, Urth, Roscoe’s etc)!
