John began to develop his love for the art of hairdressing at a very young age by brushing his 80 year old grandmother’s hair and helping her to put it into a bun.
He was also inspired when his “big sister” would come in from Charlotte on the weekends and give everyone in the family the latest styles. John graduated from Leon’s Beauty School in the spring of 1993 and began to work with some of the best talent in the beauty industry, attending many shows and always attending continuing education classes. In 1997 John attended the Toni and Guy Academy in London England and shortly thereafter decided to move to New York City where he apprenticed with world renowned stylist Mark Garrison at The Mark Garrison Salon on Madison Avenue . John had the privilege of working with such famous celebrities as Paula Abdul , Monica Celes and Sandra Bullock. During his tenure at the Mark Garrison Salon, John had the privilege of training with celebrity hair and scalp guru Phillip B who makes one of the best hair and scalp treatment lines in the haircare business.
