Georges is ano‍‍‍ther one of the Scissors team that voraciously devours technical education, has taught and competed enough that no boasting is necessary anymore. A lot of our other stylists get their hair done by him. (Enough said)

‍‍‍Rocky has been doing hair longer than some of our staff has been al-I mean he has a storied past of hair adventures, and is fantastic at commercial magazine - style photoshoot hair and staying ahead of trends. ‍‍‍Rocky is part owner of all three Scissors locations, and divide‍‍‍s his time between them.


Hair has always been part of my life it seems. After many years in this industry, and many years at scissors, I still enjoy my work, which says a lot about my craft and scissors as a place of work. I enjoy the interaction I have with my clients who have been loyal to me for a very long time.
