“My mission is to create constant motion in hair by focusing on the health, integrity, and how it’s manipulated.” Says Justin, who has accelerated his career in the past decade with extensive training in the hair industry by way of well know artists like; Candy Shaw, Jon Reyman, Allen Ruiz, David Adams, Kevin Ryan, Frank Rizzieri, Scott Buchanan. Hauns Korpela, Lupe Voss & other various artists and mentors. From Alabama to here in New York City he has expanded his knowledge in hairstyling and pursuing his dreams. His work is widely praised with precise technical skills from behind the chair to commercial work. The passion within him stems from making sure every persons hair he touches is manipulated in such a way that the person is left feeling very confident in their look not just with their hair but with how they feel. The editorial side to styling hair has also opened up opportunities to work with great creative teams and to being a multi-published hairstylist as well as working on set for celebrities like Major Lazer, A$AP Rocky, & Elley Duhe’.┬áJustin is currently using resources within the network to collaborate with other artistic influencers, to gain more experience in commercial work as well as spending a few days in salon building clientele here in NYC.
