Joico’s Damien Carney Hosts Event at Kohler Academy

Joico International Artistic Director Damien Carney

Students and instructors at Kohler Academy in Scottsdale, AZ, attended a special seminar by visiting Joico International Artistic Director Damien Carney. The presentation featured two haircut demonstrations—one focused on foundational skill and the other on creativity—and ended with an open floor for questions. “I felt it was important to demonstrate both so that they could see that it was important to perfect your technique, and also important to allow yourself to be free-spirited and creative,” said Carney. “When you leave a great place like the Kohler Academy, you have a great foundation.” Later in the day, more than 100 guests showed up at the VIP event that included a tour of the educational facility, which officially adopted Joico’s Vero K-PAK Color last year, plenty of networking, and a presentation of four finished models and one live haircut. Carney said of Kohler Academy President and Co-Founder, Jill Kohler, “Jill is amazing.  Her students adore her, she clearly loves what she does, and she is giving back so much to our industry.” —Clarissa Nebuya
