Damien has been hairdressing for 21 years, with the last 15 of those at Hemisphere. He has been co-owner for four years, now. During his apprenticeship, Damien honed his craft by competing in the International Hairdressing Society awards, where he was WA Junior Stylist of the Year. Just one among many national awards that he has earned throughout his career.
Once he finished his training, Damien ventured to London to gain valuable technical and customer service experience. Whilst there, he worked at a boutique salon, working his way up to become an Art Director. He had the opportunity to work on many fashion shows and made it to the L’Oreal Star Search semi-finals.
Once back in Perth, he started at Hemisphere and has never looked back. He has presented for L’Oreal Professional, earned his L’Oreal Colour Degree, and had the privilege of being selected for the L’Oreal ID Team which nurtures up and coming artists in the industry.
Following his two-year stint on the ID Team, Damien focussed his talents on more prizes and has been a national finalist for L’Oreal Colour Trophy for both cutting and colouring. Twice.
Over the past two years he has been state fashion director for Intercoiffure which is an international hair organisation. His role is to facilitate and coordinate training in WA and nationally. He finds this very rewarding as he can give something back to the hairdressing community.
Although Damien has had extensive colour experience, his passion for cutting is where he really gets excited! Especially if his client sports short hair! One thing that Damien loves about Hemisphere is the team culture that resonates within every staff member. Whoever you see, as a client you will feel welcomed as part of the family.
