Skaught Gibson

Hairstylist, Circa Salon (Henderson) and Blow Downtown; age 35

What he’s wearing now: Paul Smith glasses, Sonic Youth T-shirt, AllSaints shirt, Tokyo Flash watch, Levi’s jeans and belt, John Varvatos boots.

Style icons: James Dean, George Clooney and British punks. “I love combining the bad boy with the classic gentleman, and an underlying hint of punk rock every now and then.”

Skaught (pronounced Scott) likes to go against the grain himself. “A friend of mine in high school invented the ‘new’ spelling of my name and it just stuck,” he says, “so I legally changed it.”
