Patrick McIvor was not a typical beauty school student. He worked as a mechanic after high school and even attended college before discovering a passion for cutting and coloring hair.

Enrolling in Beauty School made all of the difference…

For the last three decades, Patrick has worked as an educator, artistic director, and training manager for top beauty companies like Clairol, Wella, Redken and Maitrix.

He has literally traveled around the world, teaching color and inspiring other hair dressers to achieve their dreams. He has worked with Elle, Vogue, Seventeen, Ford and more!

Here is some great advice from Patrick:

1)  Find great mentors. Everything I know, someone else taught me.

2)  Be on time and always be willing to work harder than everybody else.

3)  Always surround yourself with people who are better than you.

4)  Don’t worry about making money. You can and you will, if you love what you do!
