Spokane Hair Dresser and Editorial Stylist, Douglas McCoy, dreamed of styling hair for just one show at New York Fashion week. Four seasons and over a dozen shows later, McCoy is preparing to head to New York once again, and is bringing with him an even bigger dream.
“It's a pretty special thing,” said McCoy of his experiences at fashion week. McCoy has been styling hair for 24 years and works on the Bumble and Bumble styling team at various shows each season. He started practicing and learning for his audition in 1997 and a few years ago he finally flew to L.A. for an open call with hundreds of other hair dressers from across the country.
“There's so much riding on every show,” said McCoy. “It's pretty structured, but there's always that last minute oh my god moment.”
