The fusion of art, science and creativity is the driving force behind Matt Swinney’s ambition and passion for the haircare industry. Matt has been highlighted as a Beauty Genius by Elle, and recently took home the trophy at the 2013 North American Hair Styling Awards (NAHA) in the Avant-Garde category. A three-time NAHA nominee, his work has also been featured in popular trade publications such as American Salon, Modern Salon, and Canadian Hairdresser.
