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
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.
