Stylist at Soda Salon in Glenwood Park
Andrew’s secret admirer says it best in a nomination letter that quickly captured our fancy: “Super cute, stylish and fun. He is a great hairstylist and always out and about around Atlanta and down to have a good time — dancing at Mary’s, grabbing a drink at Estoria or dinner at the newest Mexican joint. There are very few Atlanta gays who have not crushed on Andy. He is so adorable!”
Name one band from the past you wish you’d seen live.
The Ronettes. That’s my favorite girl group. I really like ’60s pop.
What would your friends find most surprising about you?
That I wish I had gone to college instead of just hair school. I mean I love doing hair, but I wish I would have gone to college and still done hair.
What three foods are part of your everyday diet?
Eggs, Lean Cuisine and Red Bull. That sounds terrible.
What’s your favorite karaoke song?
Oh, we go to Maryoke all the time [at Mary's in East Atlanta]. I’m going to say, “Take me home tonight,” that Eddie Money song.
Which is better X-box or old-school arcade games?
I would def say old -school arcade games — always old-school anything.
High school: Best years ever or living nightmare?
I had a blast in high school. I barely went.
What’s the best place in Atlanta to take out-of-towners?
Actually, I would only take people to Maryoke.
What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done in public?
One time I dressed like Tom Cruise from Risky Business for Halloween. It was dumb because I was only wearing underwear.
What’s the worst movie that you love?
Oh my god, there’s so many. Earth Girls are Easy.
What one thing would you change about Atlanta?
I wish that the public transportation system were better, because I have to drive everywhere. You actually have to have a car to drive to the public transportation.
What do you wish someone would hurry up and invent?
A cure for cancer and cure for AIDS. That’d be nice.
