Martin Hillier, Contessa Awards Stylist of the Year, is passionate about his work. From that passion comes creativity and expert design. Whether it be photographic or platform work, Martin's ability to transform the average to the exceptional is nothing short of inspiring.
Respect for his craft and commitment to perfectionism are the catalysts that have motivated Martin to produce some of the most beautiful work the hairdressing industry has seen to date. His trend setting colour techniques have become standard in many salons and his upstyles are second to none. Martin's work has been published in magazines throughout the world. He has also appeared on television, in educational videos, and on radio talk shows.
In last year's debut season of Shear Genius, Bravo-TV's reality competition for hairdressers, one of the genuine surprises was Ben Mollin. The tattooed, rock-loving stylist was eccentric and humble, freely admitting his limitations in certain disciplines.
But he also exhibited an eagerness to learn and a passion for his craft, so much so that judge Sally Hershberger commended him for his growth over the course of the competition. And grow he did, right into the number two spot taking second place and outdistancing the thousands of other stylists who auditioned. For Mollin, Shear Genius was a turning point in a career that began in 1993 and included owning and operating several different salons in Chicago and Indiana.
