Joey Scandizzo

29 November 2012

Taylorweir had a visit from a special guest last week...non other than Joey Scandizzo, the current 2012 Australian Hair Expo Hairdresser of the Year.

Joey holds this and many other awards and accolades (did you watch the recent series of Beauty and the Geek? He was responsible for the dramatic make over's on the geeks).

He was in WA for the Australian Hairdressing Council road show which was held at Taylorweir on Monday 19th November.

Joey arrived in Perth early to present a motivational talk to 70 of our apprentices.

He captivated our Monday students with his inspirational "journey so far" through his hairdressing career.

From his early apprentice days to his rise to fame in the hairdressing industry, Joey shared stories about assisting backstage at shows, meeting his wife (who was one of his clients), working on TV shows, and running a successful and busy salon whilst travelling the world for competitions and photo shoots.

Joey was joined on stage by Anthony Wynne-Hoelscher from AHC and Culture magazine and WA's own Marie Cain - Head Studio Perth and Antonio Sorgiovanni - Sorge's House for Hair.

A huge thank you to all involved for taking time out of  their busy schedules "to get up close and personal" with our next generation of hairdressers and to motivate us all in this fabulous industry.
