Blue hair is all the rage these days, and the azure locks of Atomic Sean, a hair stylist apprentice at Babooshka, caught our eye when we spotted him waiting for a bus at 11th Avenue and Broadway. Sean is originally from Pennsylvania and New Orleans, and has lived in Denver for the past six years; on this day, he was wearing a vintage Western shirt and Jeffrey Campbell boots. "I altered the shorts from a pair of jeans," he told us. "I designed and made my bracelets and bag."  Keep reading to find out where he  shops, who designs his awesome accessories, and how he views his style — which he describes as "creepy, sexy, cool."

Style inspirations/icons: I've always had my own outlook and output of style, but I am constantly inspired by subversive music, art and film.

Shops at: Mainly thrift stores, eBay for shoes. Locally, Regal Vintage is my absolute favorite. 

Style mantra: Dress as though your life depends on it.

Atomic Sean definitely has his own unique style.  His ability to take some designer accessories, like his boots by Campbell, and pair them with something original, such as his bag and bracelets, and then throw in a dash of vintage, is the mark of a true fashionista. And, as his playful hair color suggests, he's having fun with his fashion: Life can be whimsical. 

Don't be afraid to be colorful, Denver, but always stay true to yourself.
