Tatum Neill's professional journey began at UNC Chapel Hill, where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Policy. He then began working for Neill Corporation as their Environmental Education Director, during which time he discovered his passion for hair and felt compelled to learn the craft. After graduating from the Aveda Institute New York, he worked with top talent including Frédéric Fekkai and Nick Arrojo (working as an Educator and Platform Artist). He also began a successful career as a professional DJ. In 2014, Tatum relocated to New Orleans, where he now serves as Creative Director of Paris Parker Salons. Together with Paris Parker Education Director Chris Guidry, Tatum co-founded Elevate Hair, a new kind of hair show that incorporates live DJs, crowd interaction, and an educational component. Elevate is a social-media driven event that tours the country without sponsors of advertisements, leaving the focus entirely on the talented stylists that participate.
