But, he isn't just sitting back--the announcement has thrust the 44-year-old into the spotlight and he has shared that while he is retired from celebrity styling--he is not retired from fashion.

"This is gonna sound really sad, but I always wanted to say this in a public space. I don’t think I was put on this Earth for romantic love," Roach said, according to Buzzfeed. 

“I’ve always felt, even growing up, that I was put on this Earth to be adored and for me to help people and to love people," he continued. "I don’t really feel or desire romantic love."
