On the eve of the 4th of July I thought I would dedicate my post to the some Americans that have great hair or have influenced the hair world!!!
Chris McMillan: McMillan is responsible for creating “The Rachel” haircut that was on everyone from Jennifer Aniston to a housewife. He remains Jennifer Aniston’s mane man, however has evolved from that layered haircut and creates some beautiful hairstyles now that are very feminine and have a laid back California style. His most recent hair success was creating Michelle William’s pixie haircut.
Ted Gibson: Gibson is one of the most influential stylists of our time. He made a huge buzz when his haircuts at his NYC Flatiron salon became $950! Women still flocked to have him do their hair. He creates ultra feminine styles that seem effortless but high in glamour. He has moved on from just being a stylist to creating an entire brand, however he still remains humble and leaves his stamp on every women he touches.
Scott J: Scott started out as an apprentice in a Long Island salon and has now 3 Aveda/NYC salons and is one of the few Aveda platform artists. His salons and career are highly regarded in the Aveda network and amongst his peers. He has created salons that cultivate young talent and allow them to thrive.
Sally Hershberger: Sally is famous for creating the Meg Ryan shag haircut. She has a very cutting edge style, however with a mix of beachy California cool-an ode to her roots. Her NYC salon is one of the most sought have salons and bodes a very long waiting list. She also partners with Chris McMillan and works at his salon in California. She is a huge influence in the hair world and has been able to create a product line and brand amongst all her male counter parts. I have such respect for Sally and her style.
