Billy began his career at the world renowned Vidal Sassoon in Atlanta GA, where he received his training as a cutting specialist.

As an educator and talent William has toured with the international brand of Wella nationwide and has been a cutting educator for Italian brand Davines. In 2010 Billy was honored with his nomination for the What’s Next Award. Perhaps the biggest honor Billy has had was the opportunity to serve his country during a time of conflict, where he was able to to discover his passion for hair cutting.
