Since 2009, Sydney has grown from a beauty school student into a multifaceted stylist with her hand in as many projects and challenges as possible. Cutting, coloring, braiding, bridal styling, and make up are just a few of her tricks. Sydney has taken classes at Sassoon, worked with HOB salon in London, and trained with global artists Allen Ruiz, Lupe Voss, and David Adams. She also trained exclusively for two years with Sal Misseri, traveling nationally and internationally working on shoots, shows, and runway events. With winning countless awards and nominations, Sydney understands the value of industry, competition, and the impact a strong win can have on a stylist’s ability to push through self-doubt. She is passionate about education and believes empowering other stylists by sharing the knowledge and tools necessary to learn and grow, is truly the key to success. As the Artistic Director of Haircutting for Kaizen Education, Sydney is proud to have coached students and stylists in countless subjects and going on to win national industry awards and elevated the daily behind the chair industry in general.
