George Buckner owner of Hair Fashions East on Madison Avenue, is an expert on Hair and Scalp Care. A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he came to New York with a dream. He studied in New York, Austria, Germany, and France.
George’s insightful accession in hair and scalp care has stilted the definition of a modern-contemporary hairstylist. “Ease and versatility are the key words for hair care in this decade”, says George.
As an innovator, he was the first New York Hair Salon to have a cosmetology apprenticeship program in conjunction with the Cooperative School of Technical Education through the Board of Education. He served as a “Partner in Education”, through the New York Board of Education since the mid-eighties.
Clients have been with him for twenty years or more, from out-of-state and abroad. No matter what happens to their hair, they make a trip to the man they call, “The Hair Care Specialist”.
Women today need no-fuss hair-dos and grooming services for their active and demanding life-styles. This, of course, means regular visits to a salon – one that will answer all of their beauty needs.
Some of George’s accomplishments:
– Elected the President of the Societe Française de Biosthétique, USA Section
– Gold Medal Winner, Women Hairstyle Festival in Birmingham, England
– Gold Medal Winner and Team Captain Women Hairstyling Festival in Birmingham, England
– Judge at the 1st African-American Hair Festival, Dakar, Senegal
