Undeniably one of the most accomplished hairstylists of the last 20 years
Extraordinary. Visionary. Breathtaking. These are just a few of the adjectives often used to describe the genius of Damien Carney.
Undeniably one of the most accomplished hairstylists of the last 20 years, Carney has elevated hairstyling into an art form through an impressive body of work with a virtual who’s who of fashion and beauty.
Who else but Carney can claim a mentorship with not one but two of the industry’s most prolific artists of all time?
After serving as the Artistic Director and Principle Trainer for one of London’s top hairstyling academies, Carney was tapped by the undisputed masters of hair artistry, Trevor Sorbie and Eugene Soleiman, to join Sorbie’s legendary Covent Garden salon, where he not only served as Principle of Education but received the education of a lifetime.
Since then, Carney has traveled the globe, collaborating with photographers Gilles Bensimon, Ellen von Unwerth, Norman Watson, Rankin and David Slijper.
His work has graced the pages of international publications ELLE, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, W, Cosmopolitan and GQ.
Ryan Gosling, Grace Jones, Trudie Styler, Abbey Lee, Magdalena Frackowiak, Liberty Ross, Jodie Kidd and Karen Mulder are just a few of the A-list celebrities and top models who have turned to Carney to create their image-defining hairstyles.
Since 1999, Carney has wielded his scissors and unique artistic vision for Shiseido Laboratories as the International Artistic Director for the beauty giant’s prestigious Joico hair care brand.
In 2006, Carney channeled his passion for education into establishing Damien Carney London, a modern, mobile hairstyling academy with satellite offices in London, New York and Los Angeles.
Through his vision, Carney inspires artists all over the world to take hair to the highest levels of creativity and excellence.
