MEET YOUR INSTRUCTORS

DEAN BANOWETZ

AKA, HOLLYWOOD HAIR GUY

Dean Banowetz, aka the Hollywood Hair Guy is a 7-time Emmy nominated stylist, 11-time Guild Member nominee with 4 Guild Award wins. On top of these accolades, Dean has authored the The Dean’s List of Daddy Do’s. As the department head behind several well-known shows such as, American Idol, So You
Think You Can Dance, World of Dance and America’s Got Talent; and on the teams of Legendary, The Voice and Shark Tank; it is no shock that the locks wizard has secured celebrity staples like Lionel Richie, Derek Hough, Leeza Gibbons, Simon Cowell, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson to name a few. After owning and operating a full-service salon in Bettendorf, IA, Dean made the big move to Los Angeles, where he landed a gig on the nationally syndicated series Extra.

 

Growing up on a farm in rural Iowa, Dean is the thirteenth of 15 children! Coming from a huge family, he is shameless in the self-promotion department ‚Äď always starving for attention, of course. It‚Äôs also because he loves to give advice and make people feel good. To say his life has been a little quirky and a lot of crazy is understating it.
In Dean’s first career, he enlisted in the US Army where he earned Soldier of the Year in Fort Hood with the Second Armored Division. Dean received his first Army Achievement medal within the first 6 months of enlisting, then 3 more followed after. Another life highlight was creating wigs for regional dinner theatre shows across the Midwest and traveling to many US salons after being selected as a North American Educator for a major haircare manufacturer. So, when stepping into a class with Dean Banowetz, pay attention and buckle up. Be prepared for a mind-blowing session taking your technical skills, business skills and creativity to the next level.

Throughout her journey, Cory had the opportunity to work with renowned celebrities such as Judge Judy, Jojo Siwa, The Weeknd, and John Cena.
