Mamba Stylist Oscar Bond
Oscar Bond began his long history as an industry educator at the esteemed Vidal Sassoon Academy in London. He was a member of the International Artistic and Show Team for Sassoon before taking the big leap to independence in 1987.
His mastery of the craft and gift for teaching has taken him worldwide for the past 25 years. He has worked in almost every city in the world and all over America. In 1994, he joined the Aveda Artistic Style Council and was appointed as Head of Education for the Aveda Institute in New York – Soho. At Aveda, he was responsible for implementing a strong yet simple haircutting system on many levels throughout the Aveda network and delivering the latest trends through weekly advanced haircutting classes, national-level shows, and seasonal photographic sessions. In 1998, he began the tremendous task of putting his years of knowledge and expertise into the ownership of a larger vision.
He has been featured in such magazines as In Style, Mademoiselle, Jane, Marie Clare, Self, GQ, Details, YM, Soho Style, Time Out, and Vogue, and his salon was voted one of New York City’s Top Ten Salons in the October 1999 Issue of Salon News.
