Scott has a talent for glamorous hair finishing, and his sexy, long-layered haircut has proven very popular with those who have been searching for a "sensual, tussled, bed-headed" look that's always gorgeous... even when you wake up!   His classic round-brush blowouts are fun to watch and even better to experience!  They've quickly earning him a unique reputation for making everyone ready for the runway. 

He's an exceptional Up-Style artist, having received training from Martin Parsons and other notables in the art of French and Italian hair dressage.

No plans for the evening?  Well, be warned:  Many of Scott's clients find themselves coordinating a spontaneous “Evening Out” before they leave his chair!

His diverse skill-set, the product of a lifetime of observation and practice within the beauty and fashion culture, have helped form his proven abilities in hair artistry. Scott has spent most of his life sampling fashion and beauty trends the world over: from London, Paris and the French Riviera, to Monte Carlo, Rome, Berlin, Bangkok, Prague, Budapest and Moscow... to name a few. 

The son of a respected hairdresser, Scott grew up in the salon environment and feels at home there.

A fully-licensed hairdresser in several states, Scott is also a former General Manager of the celebrity-frequented Bella Salon in Austin.  He received his Cosmetology education at the distinguished Greenwood Academy in Seattle while completing his apprenticeship at the celebrated RED Salon where he learned both Gene Juarez and Sassoon methods of hair cutting under the direction of Robert Middleton and Michael Simons.  In addition, his career training has been augmented by the expertise of the Paris-based stylist Mourad de Chassey, himself a noted stylist of Sassoon tuition.

After several years of working his craft in Seattle and the completion of his hair and make-up apprenticeship at RED, Scott relocated to Austin and began assisting for, then eventually working alongside celebrity hairdresser Giacomo Forbes.

Forbes, featured in Bravo’s popular television production Shear Genius, worked with celebrities such as Claudia Schiffer, Emma Thompson, Marissa Tomei, Yasmeen Bleeth, Eloise de Jorio,
Sandra Bullock and numerous others, and his work was featured within, or on the cover of Allure, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and others.

During his tenure with Forbes, Scott was given the opportunity to absorb the classic and contemporary hair cutting, coloring, and runway/editorial dressage methods of Forbes himself- as well as the collective techniques of Forbes' own famous mentors: Bruno Dessange, Paul Mitchell, Jose Eber, Pierre Michel, and Frederik Fekkai.

Success came quickly for Scott, and over the ensuing years he’s used his exceptional skills and techniques to become a much-talked-about successful session editorial and runway hairdresser.  Recent clients include Barbara Terry- race car driver and auto expert, Joey Shuffield- drummer, 3x Grammy-Nominated Fastball band, Heath Macintosh- drummer, Soak band, Michael Anania- author, The Color of Dust, among others, and has been featured on the cover of several magazines, including Tribeza.

An accomplished fencer, AHRMA vintage motorbike racer and SCCA/PCA motorsport enthusiast, Scott currently divides his time between his home studio in Salt Lake and various other hair assignments throughout the United States.
