Over the last 20 years, Carney has elevated hair styling into an art form through his work with a virtual who’s who in fashion and beauty. He has worked with photographers including Gilles Bensimon and Ellen von Unwerth, fashion houses like Louis Vuitton, John Paul Gautier and Giorgio Armani, countless international fashion publications and celebrities. Since 1999, he has created inspiring hair styles for Joico’s global advertising and twice yearly trend collections. In 2006, Carney founded Damien Carney London, the salon industry’s first mobile beauty academy.

Why He’s Influential: Carney’s work is proof that a strong foundation in classical training is essential to creating even the most avant-garde hair design.

Who Influences Him: “It’s rare that great ideas come from just one person—the best ones are a team effort,” says Carney. “The photographers, hair colorists, fashion stylists and make-up artists I regularly work with influence and inspire me.”
