BUDDY PORTER

Stylist

Buddy W. Porter is a global hair stylist, specializing in dry cutting and modern styling. He began his hair career in Orange County, CA where he focused on Sassoon cutting principles. Porter left his clientele behind to move up to LA to advance in his career.

Drawing inspiration from music and art, Porter looks at the hair as if it’s a sculpture. Every haircut will be different. Everyone has different hair, and a different head and face shape. This is why it’s critical to make sure the haircut is tailored to the person. Porter always makes sure that your hair will compliment not only your style but also your lifestyle. Often getting asked why he only cuts hair when it’s dry, his answer is quite simple. You don’t wear your hair wet, so why cut it wet? I want to make sure that I can see exactly how your hair will lay naturally so you can have the most low-maintenance hair possible. 

Having your hair become virtually effortless is one of Porter’s main goals. If you can style your own hair with ease after I cut it, it’s one of the best feelings. Giving someone the freedom of being able to just wash and go is something I aim for.”

Porter travels to New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Chicago and Portland.
