Carolyn O’Neill

Carolyn began her career in a salon on Long Island, New York at the age of 15. Whilst honing her cutting skills under her first mentor, Carolyn realised her true passion lay in making one hair cut come alive in many different styles. Having studied makeup, and falling in love with the artistry of it, the obvious progression was to build a career in the fashion industry.

Since moving to Milan in 1998, Carolyn has forged a solid career working with high profile clients and publications, and assisting the formidable Eugene Souleiman on countless shows in all the fashion capitals of the world. Carolyn works predominantly between London and Milan. She is still passionate about it all.
