After signing up for a hands on styling class, I really had no idea what I would be learning or experiencing. Little did I know that on Sunday, April 12, 2015, that I would be exactly where I need to be. Joseph DiMaggio is a Master Session Ambassador for Davines North America. He resides in New York City, where you will find him working behind the scenes of New York Fashion Week. He has worked with top designers for photo shoots and has been published in numerous magazines. Joseph travels domestically and internationally teaching his amazing techniques in styling and cutting. Not only is he a phenomenal stylist, but he also has an engineering background. Joseph's knowledge is out of this world and it will truly blow your mind. To top it off, he is sincere, genuine, kind, focused, and is absolutely passionate about hair and encouraging people to follow their passion with this business. All around, he is a solid dude. I can not say enough positive things about this man. His personal motto and philosophy, "Live and do everything with intent." A man after my own heart.
Joseph brought an assistant with him, Patrick G. Nadeau, a freelance hairdresser and educator from Montreal. Like Joseph, Patrick has been published and works behind the scenes of Fashion Week. His natural knack for styling and educating is obvious with how he works in partnership with Joseph.
Together, they make a powerful team. It's a beautiful thing when educating comes as easy and flawless as it does for these two.
Overall, my experience with these talented men was amazing. They have broadened my knowledge to styling beautiful and healthy hair. I gained new techniques for runway styles that are wearable for everyday and I now have added skills for in salon styling as well as styling for weddings, fashion and photo shoots.
Thank you Joseph and Patrick for your amazing education. This was definitely the best hands on class I have ever experienced and It will truly help to further my career.
