By his 12th birthday, Johnny Wright had a client base of 100 classmates. Today, Wright’s client roster consists of entertainment’s most stylish and influential celebrities including First Lady Michelle Obama, actress Nia Long and MSNBC’s Tamron Hall.

Wright is passionate about encouraging stylists to realize what’s beyond the chair and show how far their hands can take them.” As The Artistic Style Director for SoftSheen-Carson, Wright has educated over 5000 hairstylists around the world.

“I find and feel inspiration from a lot of different things. I can find inspiration in the shape of a tree...the shape of a car. I remember going to London and the architecture of the buildings made me think of a particular haircut.”

Wright advises to others to: “Do what you love, love what you do, and look good doing it. If you have that mindset, you can soar in any industry.” Whenever Wright is mentoring others his biggest advice is to stay focused. “If you have focus, ambition and drive, you can go very far,” he says.
