Andy Bodine is a very passionate hairstylist with a genuine love for teaching. Over the last 20 years Bodine has dedicated much of his career to education in the professional beauty industry. From hairdressing schools to premiere hair shows around the world, Bodine has shared his knowledge and passion on cutting and dressing hair with thousands of beauty professionals.

Bodine went to high school in England and was always inspired by the fashion and hair trends he discovered on the streets of London in the mid 80's. After returning to the United States he enrolled in cosmetology school and embarked on a journey that would forever change his life. While still in beauty school, Bodine began his quest for education by apprenticing with world class hair professionals at John Paul Mitchell Systems. This led into a national educator position with the hair care leader, which spanned for 10 years.

In 1999 Bodine's love for teaching inspired him to open a state-of-the-art cosmetology school that was determined to go "beyond the basics" and give students a more rounded education and a jump start to success. The intimate classroom environment and "virtual salon" clinic provided an opportunity for students to work as they were in a real salon, with professional tools, products and a younger, trendier clientele than most schools attracted. Bodine's former students have gone on to become top hair stylists, salon owners, educators and platform artists within just a few short years of graduation.

In addition, Bodine was now traveling the country educating beauty professionals on behalf of John Sahag. Bodine trained closely with the legendary hairdresser both in his Madison Avenue Workshop in New York City and during private hair show appearances that Sahag would make for salons carrying the product line that bared his name. "John Sahag's innovative dry cutting technique totally re-invented my craft" say's Bodine, who was one of Sahag's top educators for 5 years. This led Bodine to Beverly Hills, CA where he began cutting and styling hair for Hollywood's A-list.


After the passing of his mentor John Sahag in June 2005, Bodine began searching for a way he could carry on the torch he had been handed. Soon he was introduced to an innovative and progressive young company from England named ghd that was soon to launch in the U.S. It turned out that ghd was one of the fastest growing beauty company's in the world, coupling fashion, style and image together with an outstanding styling iron, marketing concept and ad campaigns. ghd is a high fashion global brand and a perfect platform for Bodine to share his talent and passion. In March of 2006 he was chosen as one of the first ghd U.S. Directive Artists and later annointed as the ghd U.S. Artistic Ambassador. Since then Bodine has been traveling the world doing hair shows, photo shoots, fashion shows and inspiring ghd salon pro's!


Andy Bodine has an incredible gift for working with people and bringing out the best in themselves and their craft. His positive approach to life in the beauty industry will help motivate everyone to stretch for their dreams & goals, inspiring anyone attending one of his presentations. Bodine's secret to success: "Helping other people achieve success through education, inspiration and motivation".
