Theodore Leaf is emerging as a Lifestyle powerhouse, from beauty to food his passion and expertise shines in everything he does. His passion for special occasions began when he was 7 years old helping women select their wedding dresses at his family owned bridal salon in Hartville, Ohio. Working alongside his grandmother, mother, and aunts, he became addicted to the art of transformation. Turning everyday girls into the bride of their childhood dreams had Theodore hooked on the journey from “before” to “after” which became the common theme for all of his future endeavors.
After completing his studies at Paul Mitchell Academy, Theodore made a big splash into the world of entertainment as the youngest contestant on Bravo’s “Shear Genius.” The show opened new doors for Theodore landing him celebrity clients, spokesperson roles, and a top stylist position at Sally Hershberger. Since then, Theodore’s title has shifted from simply “hairstylist” to man of many trades. After years of hosting dinner parties Theodore decided to take his culinary skills to the next level by attending the International Culinary Center’s Farm to Table program in New York City. During this intense program he worked with the renowned Blue Hill at Stone Barnes to learn about cultivating the best ingredients and cooking seasonally using every part of a plant or animal. His love for the French culinary technique brought him to Thomas Keller’s Bouchon in Rockefeller Center where he honed his pastry and savory skills. Since moving back home to Los Angeles Chef Theodore has been hosting private dinners, teaching cooking classes at Sur LaTable and filming his cooking & lifestyle series on YouTube. Theodore is the entertaining expert on LogoTV’s “Secret Guide To Fabulous,” executive produced by Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos.
Theodore works on both sides of the camera producing his own YouTube channel that features Food, Beauty, Home hacks & DIY reaching over 14 million views. He has been featured on television shows including NBC’s Fashion Star, E!’s Fashion Police and PBS’s Martha Bakes.
From creating red carpet ready hair to a restaurant quality dinner party, every moment has potential to be fabulous or as Theodore likes to say, “Everyday is a special occasion.”
