Called, "A genuine haircolor prodigy" by some, Patrick McIvor started teaching and advising major color companies when he was barely out of his teens. By the mid-1990s, he was running his own salon in New Jersey, and also serving as color director of Arrojo Cutler-one of New York city's hottest salons at the time. In 1996, he also earned a significant distinction-Allure Magazine named him the Best Colorist in the U.S. To date, Patrick has taught haircolor in 16 countries on five continents and has served as Technical Director, Artistic Director and Global Artist for high profile professional color brands like Clairol, Logics, Wella, Redken and Matrix.
In 2006, McIvor opened the Patrick McIvor Color Studio in Pennsylvania, and in just three years, built it into a three-quarter million dollar business. The salon served a laboratory for the techniques that he teaches, and he adheres to a single standard as an educator. "If I haven't done it, made money from it and if the guest hasn't come back as a result, I don't share it," he declares. "If I've seen evidence that something works for me and for my team in our salon, then I'm confident it will work for everyone." p

Designed for trench work in the salon and keeping hair in great shape at home, this ionically charged brush with tourmaline crystal complex infused pins just makes hair better. Recommended for detangling wet hair, removing moisture before glazing and creating a soft sleek surface when finishing, this brush you can’t live without if you have hair or work with hair.
With heat resistant “Professional Style” nylon pins that are infused with Tourmaline Crystal Complex, a unique natural crystal material that when combined with heat emits negative ions which polishes the hair creating a sleeker cuticle, more shine and less frizz. And it just gets better because the Tourmaline Crystal Complex effect causes the outer layers of the hair to become tighter and hair dries faster. The decreased drying time, heat damage is greatly reduced resulting in healthier, shinier, beautiful, sexy, believable hair.
