Mandee’s passion for hairdressing began while growing up in her mother’s Texas salon. Her love of hairstyling, both editorial and behind-the-chair, led her to New York City in 2009. Ever since, Mandee has been a regular backstage at fashion week in New York, Milan, and Paris, for elite brands such as Givenchy, Kenzo and Valentino, to name a few. Most recently, Mandee served as the lead stylist for Maiden Noir during New York Men’s Fashion Week. Her extensive time on set has also earned her features in editorial publications such as Vogue, Institute Magazine, Regent, and Sweets Magazine. She has also had the privilege of styling celebrity guests for the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Mandee draws inspiration from New York’s street styles and the eclectic art scene. As an Oribe Educator, Mandee travels the world leading launches and workshops in the US, Canada and South America. She was most recently featured on stage at Oribe’s 2017 regional ateliers.
