A hairdresser by trade, James began his career in a busy boutique salon on Melbourne's Northside. Here he spent years studying face shapes, bone structure and suitability in both men's and women's hair. Technically trained by award winning schools and stylists James absorbed all he could before setting off for a new challenge. The next two years were spent honing and refining his skills in men's hair on the floor at Morris Motley, combining clipper and scissor work to create sharp and effortless hair.
