Gerard Scarpaci

Gerard Scarpaci is an expert stylist, educator, and co-founder of the popular Hairbrained community. He began his career as an apprentice at Vidal Sassoon in New York City, and then went onto work with Sassoon Academies Worldwide before opening his own salon, SPIN, in Brooklyn, NY. He also served at the first Artistic Director at the Aveda Advanced Academy in Soho, which opened in 2005. It was through the Aveda network that Gerard met educator and salon owner Randy Taylor, who first identified the need for a social network exclusively for hairdressers. The two created the Hairbrained community in 2009 as an online forum for stylists to connect with the educators and peers they met at classes and shows.
