Hair Nerds come in all different shapes and sizes… some work in the salon,  others are educators, platform artists, session stylists, salon coordinators and some Hair Nerds don’t even hold a cosmetology license.   With the help of our newest Hair Nerd Contributor, Dev Rice,  we will be exploring the professional beauty industry behind the scenes.


It’s a great time to be in professional beauty! There are literally thousands of services, classes, products, shows, experiences, contests and opportunities for stylists, barbers, manicurists and makeup artists to choose from! It’s literally a smorgasbord of hairspray/lacquer/eyeliner fun!

Who’s responsible for bringing all of this to the beauty professional? One guy named Chuck, who lives on a farm in North Dakota…he’s busy. SO very busy….but seriously, there are literally thousands of passionate people working to make sure that today’s highly talented and connected beauty professionals have everything they need to learn, grow, make money and provide top-shelf service to their clients and customers.

Over the next few months, we’re going to talk to a variety of individuals, who work tirelessly behind-the-scenes to deliver the goods. You’ll see that the birds definitely flock together, as people on the inside can be just as crazy-cool, and focused, as their campadres out there behind-the chair. – Dev Rice
