Becoming a Hair Stylist

Becoming a Hair Stylist

(Part of Masters at Work)
Choosing a profession begins with imagining yourself in a career, and this reader-friendly, accessible guide offers a detailed look at one of the oldest, most diverse, and overlooked industries: hair styling.

Gwenn LeMoine sees the world through the lens of hair. The daughter of two hairstylists, she has taken her natural talent to an entrepreneurial level and is now the owner of Parlor, a wildly popular, two-location hair salon in the East Village and Brooklyn.

Becoming a Hair Stylist shares a birds-eye view of the daily life of Parlor, but also provides a compelling profile of the salon owner, a pioneer with four decades of expertise in styling eccentric celebrity personalities, such as Piper Kerman, Rue McClanahan, Molly Ringwald, Twyla Tharp, and William Wegman, to name only a few. Her work has been featured on television (SNL, VH1, ETV), in magazines (Real Simple, Nylon, The New York Times, and Paste), and at awards shows, such as the Tony’s and Emmy’s.

Becoming a Hair Stylist describes what it takes to become a force of nature in the hair industry and how to excel at it—at any age and for all types of customers.
