A gifted hairdresser and makeup artist, Scott has been in the hair industry since 1999. He is a former Cosmetic Art Team member of Toni and Guy.
Scott places great value on training, evidenced by his extensive training including Toni and Guy in Dallas, Texas; with Vidal Sassoon in London, England; with Pivot Point in Chicago; and finally with Temptu Cosmetics in New York City.
Scott's best work is found on his clients he has come to know. These clients can literally tell him, "Do what you want" and know the result will be something new and exciting while still maintaining their goals, style and personality. Scott enjoys precision cuts and loves shattered, loose creative cutting. Scott describes the ideal client as someone looking for a long-term hairdresser who can grow and customize their evolving style throughout the years.
Scott is constantly inspired by runway, magazine and Hollywood. His favorite celebrity inspirations are Drew Barrymore, Gwen Steffani and Victoria Beckham. His favorite product is DermOrganics Argon Oil. This product creates shine, smoothness and protection from the blow dryer. It's great for prepping the hair for any look, length and texture. Scott loves to finish with a cool shot from the blow dryer to give more shine, smoothness and fluff.
Ultimately, Scott would love to work on more photo shoots creating hair and makeup looks that help inspire others.

“ I believe in enhancing one’s own natural beauty. That’s probably why I never cared for the word ‘Make-Over’ & what that may imply! Literally I starting working with makeup at the age of five. (Don’t think my Mom was to happy to find her products filled with little paw prints) . Needless to say I haven’t stopped since.
All these years later, with the help & guidance of wonderful teachers & mentors I cannot be any more grateful for this journey. I am truly blessed to work with people everyday--- & never feel like I’m working. I can share my gift & help bring joy in the process.
As I like to say ‘I’m just adding the frosting to the cupcake!” ;)
