Stylist + Educator
The Parlour Capitol Hill
Gene Cahill - The Parlour Owner
When I started doing hair: 1994
When I started at The Parlour: 1997
What inspires/motivates me in the industry:
The constant change of the fashion and hair excites me. I love to give my clients their perfect new look. I also love working with different textures of hair and figuring out how to work with it rather than against it. My peers creativity inspires me as well.
What I am happiest doing:
Spending time with my family and friends, traveling, shopping, riding my sweet scooter, exercising, cooking, reading and making my clients happy!
Additional Industry Involvement:
I have been an educator at The Parlour since 2003 and led Men’s hair cutting education for 9 years. Most recently, I co-developed the curly hair cutting technical phase.
What I love most about The Parlour:
I love the quality of internally and externally led education that helps us grow professionally and personally. I work for the best people on the planet and they make every day a joy to be here. We have the best clients and oh yeah… of course I love my co-workers, they are like family to me!
