Cory has been a behind the chair stylist for 8 years specializing in cutting and finishing. Originally from Michigan, he is now in the Chicago area and has been spreading Keune education for the past 3 years. He started as an Academy mentee, moved to an Academy Trainer and is now part of the 1922 by J.M. Keune men's national team. Cory works along side the top Keune Academy Trainers developing and delivering Keune's exceptional education programs. Cory believes that 'there is so much more to do in this industry than being behind the chair' and that these avenues of growth are available to all motivated stylists. He was trained by the award winning Nicholas French in the art of finishing hair and has always been motivated by Roger Thompson, Vidal Sassoon's right hand man, on the art of ambidextrous hair cutting.
