After receiving a modeling contract and leaving his career as a semi-professional football player (soccer here in the States ;P), Ahmet Kaplan was thrust into the limelight. Starting to post on social media less than two years ago, Ahmet has amassed a following of over 300,000! A genius on all things hair, he is known as @kapoofk, or the “hair guy”, but Ahmet also has some big plans to surely shake up the fashion industry. Check out our exclusive interview with him below!

There is a lot of information which my followers don’t know about me and the reason is because keeping my private life is very important to me.

  • What goes into creating a post?
    • The effort begins when I choose your outfit and style. After this, I choose the right place and position. Taking the pictures doesn’t take so much time, it takes more time for editing the pictures so that the followers have a nice post. Making videos are more difficult. It takes about one week to create a short video with high quality. I have to record every scene often and after I have the records, I’m editing it in a professional video. The most difficult part is choosing the right track for the video.
  • What can your audience look forward to? Any upcoming trends?
    • I’m thinking about starting my own YouTube channel for my videos. There is also a vision I have since I began modeling… it’s my biggest wish to own a fashion-label with my own ideas. Maybe someday this will come true. (We sure hope so too, Ahmet!)
  • What is your go-to style for summer?
    • In the summer I like colorful and fresh styles. It happens very often that people don’t like my style at first time because it’s really crazy, but after a while most of them are asking me where I got it.
  • What trend/styles do you see yourself in for the fall?
    • I didn’t think too much about the trends for fall but I think it will be more denim/jeans.

 

 

  • What do you love most about hairstyling?
    • I think styling your hair changes completely your look and gives you a charismatic touch but honestly sometimes it is really annoying to get the perfect hairstyle.
  • How do you achieve your flawless hair especially in the heat?
    • To get the perfect style also in the summer you need special products. You can see which products I’m using (and how) on my Instagram or Facebook. 😉
  • Lastly, how do you see social media influencing in the future? Has it changed since you’ve started?
    • Social media is getting more important to everybody’s life, every day. In my opinion, it’s already the most important media where people are getting the latest fashion and information. Since I have started, I feel that the people are using more social media and are buying on the internet and less in the stores.
