A born and raised New York City native, Hayden's resume and experience is as diverse as the city's population. He has been working as a hair stylist for 16 years providing his clients with truly customized color and styling. In addition to being a busy business owner, Hayden is also a National Brand Educator for Living Proof and does in-house work for Tory Burch, styling for corporate events, education videos and production.
Hayden's experience runs the gamut from micro-extensions to cut and color to keratin treatments. Throughout his career he has remained empathetic and passionate about his clients' experiences. He understands that, in a city that never sleeps, free time is a luxury and sometimes scarce. So he makes sure that he is always working to make his clients look and feel gorgeous, taking pride that he never disappoints.
Hayden knows that a new hair style and a pop of color can sometimes serve as his client's armor in this hectic city; that great hair is not just a luxury but a necessity.
Hayden has served apprenticeships with Gabriel Trujillo Everett, with Paul Labrecque and with Yusef Williams (hair stylist for Rihanna and Michelle Obama), and worked as a stylist on the Martha Stewart Living Show for 6 years. So with Hayden Kings, five-star treatment is the norm, and second nature.
A true believer that it is essential for a stylist to keep up with the innovations of the industry, Hayden is constantly adding to his repertoire by taking continuing education classes with Aveda, Redken, Wella and L'Oreal.
