A native of Memphis, Ethan moved to New York City after high school and trained as an apprentice in a high-end Madison Avenue salon. Trained in the Vidal Sassoon cutting methods, he quickly developed a talent for creating beautiful cuts and color that led to a faithful salon clientele. Shortly after becoming an AVEDA trainer, he opened hairpeace to create an urban, upscale studio salon. His passion for learning and commitment to excellence fuels his constant global search for continuing education. He graduated Summa cum Laude from Tusculum College in 2010 with a degree in Organizational Management and a concentration in Marketing. In addition to his work in the salon, Ethan visits other salons to share knowledge as a technical trainer for Wella USA and Kertain Complex Smoothing Therapy.
