Jamie CarrollHis Work:

Jamie Carroll began shearing sheep in his native Australian outback—convincing him he wanted work with his hands. He entered hairdressing through his early career as a photographer and “never looked back,” he says. In addition to being a leading global hairdressing talent, Carroll has developed a series of educational systems as well as a complete salon business system, both earning him a Global Salon Business Award.

Why He’s Influential: Carroll pioneered online education with G-learning, an interactive multiple learning format applicable to any industry. He created Envisionacademy and Continuouseducation and a series of educational seminars that he presents to hairdressers around the world. As official hairstylist for Australia Week, Carroll created looks for celebrities including Olivia Newton-John, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban.

Who Influences Him: Carroll’s greatest source of inspiration comes from the work and the words of Vidal Sassoon. “I was at Vidal’s house photographing his hands for an ‘inspirational hands’ story and he said if he were to give advice to anyone starting in the industry, it would be ‘education, education, education.’ That statement provided all the motivation I needed to continue with my journey in education,” says Carroll.
