One of the most recognizable faces in the North American salon industry, Price has a career total of 23 NAHA nominations, is a two-time NAHA North American Hairstylist of the Year Award winner, and the first-ever NAHA People’s Choice Award winner in 2011. His performances as a popular platform artist and educator are filled with smart soundbites, useful information and quick easy techniques for the salon—all delivered in his fun, feisty style.

In our time together, Price shared insight into his influences and  mentors, an honest take (and best advice) on salon ownership and the backstory to his passion project, The Southwest Hairstyling Awards.
