Based on the real-life experiences of an expert in the field, an immersive, accessible guide to a career in hairstyling brought to life by acclaimed writer Kate Bolick—essential reading for anyone interested in this creative and dynamic profession.

Gwenn LeMoine sees the world through the lens of hair. The daughter of two hairstylists, she has taken her natural talent to an entrepreneurial level and is now the owner of Parlor, a wildly popular, two-location hair salon in the East Village and Brooklyn. A pioneer with four decades of expertise in styling eccentric celebrity personalities, LeMoine works with clients such as such as Piper Kerman, Rue McClanahan, Molly Ringwald, Twyla Tharp, and William Wegman, to name only a few. Her work has also been featured on television (Saturday Night Live, VH1, ETV), in magazines (Real Simple, Nylon, the New York Times, and Paste), and at awards shows, such as the Tonys and Emmys.

In Becoming a Hair Stylist, Atlantic columnist and New York Times notable author Kate Bolick provides a compelling profile of a career in hairstyling through the life of LeMoine, and offers us a glance at a day in the life at Parlor. The perfect resource for anyone interested in a career in cosmetology, Becoming a Hair Stylist portrays how to excel as a stylist—at any age and for all types of customers.
