Douglas McCoy is an expert hairstylist, specializing in cutting. He is very accomplished, both behind the chair and behind the camera lens. He has worked six seasons of New York Fashion Week, with Houses such as BCBG, Lacoste and Rebecca Minkoff. He is a two-time winner of the Hairbrained Video Awards Lo-Fi Video of the Year and Best Over-All Video of the Year.
When Howard McLaren founded R+Co with Garren and Thom Priano, other industry legends, he asked Douglas McCoy to be on R+Co’s education team before they had developed a single product. The vision they shared was enough for Douglas to know he wanted to be a part of it. As he put it, “R+Co is real life, it’s a hairdresser’s dream.”
I loved hearing Douglas McCoy’s first-hand experience working with Howard McLaren because that’s where he learned how to make every appointment a better experience for his clients. We’re always trying to improve the salon experience for our guests so it was a perfect class to lead into our busy holiday season.Advanced Designer Heather Simpson
