Those familiar with Joico’s Damien Carney and his work were not surprised when the 2012 Mirror Awards, produced by Canadian Hairdresser Magazine pronounced him “International Stylist of the Year”.
There are many great hairdressers and there are those who stand as mentors and inspiration for hair stylists worldwide.
Joico’s International Artistic Director, Damien Carney, is one such figure and this honor confirms Carney’s standing among other greats who have previously won this award, including Errol Douglas-London; Charlie Price-Denver, CO; Allen Ruiz-Austin, TX; and John Simpson-Pittsburgh, PA.
Carney observed, “Winning an award amongst your colleagues is the ultimate joy and honor. However, I equally enjoy the process of getting to the finalist stage. I enjoy the journey as much as the end result or destination. The awards push me to set a date, time and goal – to push my vision with hair as an art form, and I am driven by that motivation.”
Joico’s International Artistic Director also admitted, “One problem is that I’m usually booked 12 to 24 months ahead, so I’m extremely busy. When you love what you do, it’s not work at all. Be sure to find me on Facebook and my website, www.damiencarney.com, for regular updates on classes, shows and other educational events.”
