Oribe educator and editorial expert, Kien Hoang shared his expertise with Samuel Cole Salon in March. Hoang lead a class dedicated to “The Art of the Ponytail”. He taught stylists how to turn this common style into a high fashion editorial and runway look. Hoang brings over 20 years of experience as a stylist and is known as much for his artistry and technical skill as he is for his passion, warmth and generosity. His creative approach to hairstyling inspires stylists to go above and beyond their day-to-day salon work. His most current work was seen on the runways during NYFW ’14 and can also be seen at kienhoang.net.
“Kien is an incredible educator and a fixture in the world of fashion. We were lucky to have him share his expertise with our salon on how to transition a quick, perfect ponytail into endless possibilities. We had 22 stylists in attendance and no two looks were the same. Our team was able to add striking looks to their portfolios,” said Sara Beard, Assistant Director of Education & Master Designer.
