Regional Creative Director Education USA
Traci Sakosits was always fascinated by fashion "I grew up in East Coast New Jersey in a room full of fashion magazines, stacks and stacks of them."
Fresh out of high school she joined the family business where she developed quite a passion for haircutting. Traci started her training at Sassoon's New York in 1992, where her talents were soon recognized and she moved swiftly up the ranks. She transferred to the Beverley Hills salon as a stylist in 1994 and was promoted to Assistant Creative Director by 1996, finally moving to the Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica in 1997. She had found her vocation, "it was my experience at the Academy that made me want to teach. I loved the idea of carrying the Sassoon knowledge on."
She is now Creative Director | Sassoon Academy | North America, based in the Sassoon Academy, LA ensuring that there is absolute consistency in education across the cities of Toronto, Miami, San Francisco and Chicago whilst organizing and developing her team. It's a job that involves extensive travel both nationally and internationally, spreading the word about the Sassoon methodology - as she modestly puts it, "I have a small hand in bettering the industry as a whole"
