At 17, Matthew knew what career path he would like to tread, attending a cosmetology school in Dallas in 1988. He has surely gone a long way, and now he owns a salon called Matthew Tully Hairdressing in Dallas with his wife of four years, who also works as a hairdresser there. Yet it was not a convenient path. He underwent rigorous training at prestigious salons, including Vidal Sassoon, Trevor Sorbie, The Doves, and Yosh Toya.
With such background, Matthew is a perfectionist when it comes to hair. He does not care whether it is edgy and trendy or classic and sophisticated, but the end product should be beautiful, sexy hair. He is very consistent and very technical when it comes to work.
Matthew is one of the contestants in Bravo TV’s Shear Genius. This second season of the reality show features 12 gifted hairstylists from all over the country who vie for the ultimate title of ”Shear Genius.” It also looks at what happens behind the scenes of competitive high-end hair styling.
