Choose Beauty: Gareth Andrew Palmer

GARETH ANDREW PALMER
Keune National Artisan

Year I Obtained My License:

1992 in Perth, Australia

Why I Chose Beauty:
Where I grew up in Australia, there was a program called “Work Experience” that was open to 10th grade students. One of the assignments was to find a job in a field of interest and work there for two weeks. I chose hair, having been intrigued with how it all worked behind the scenes. Once I saw everything that went on in the salon, I knew I had found my calling.  After my two weeks were up, Edward, the salon owner, offered me a job. That was July of 1988.

Good fortune has allowed me to travel with my craft, bringing me to the States after my apprenticeship. For the past 10 years I have called Raleigh, North Carolina, home.

Several years ago I joined forces with Keune Haircosmetics. The energy and excitement that first fueled my desire to work with hair is reignited with every class I teach and every show I present. I am constantly reminded that I have the greatest job, with the ability to touch people both personally and professionally.

I have always had a strong desire to excel in our industry and as I continue to grow and learn, I see a bright future. I will share it with those who take the journey with me.
