Brandon’s passion for hair started early in life. As a child, he often cut and colored his family members’ hair. He graduated from Monterey Academy of Hair Design and got his Cosmetology license after passing the state exams. He started working for Essence Salon shortly thereafter. He apprenticed with Jennifer for a year while he took Sassoon Academy courses in cutting and coloring in Santa Monica and San Francisco. He also took Aveda styling training with Jon Reyman in San Francisco.
