Bio

Though having lived part of his childhood in Los Angeles,  Greg Cooper Spencer spent most of his years growing up in the city in which he was born, Cincinnati, Ohio before moving to New York City.

Having graduated from Cincinnati School of Barbering and Hair  Design in 2003, Greg was immediately snapped up by a salon as a Master Barber.  A few years later, he moved to an even more high profile salon where he also began to style women’s hair, specializing in coloring, and  tending to natural hair. In 2014 Greg and his spouse purchased a home in NewYork City where Greg now practices his profession.

Greg’s eye as an artist has captured many with his elaborate cuts, hair designs and illuminating colors. He has twice been featured at Vogue Magazine online for his hairstyling for women's wear designers Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Maki Oh; men & women's designer Philipp Plein, menswear designer LVLXXI, and Miguel Vieira during NYFW: FW17 & SS18. His knowledge of hair has also led him to teach at the Paul Mitchell Academy and to work with clients such as the Broadway cast of  The Color Purple, Tony Award winner and Olivier Award winner director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, 2015 Tony award nominee Max Von Essen, Olympic medalist David Payne, NFL tight end Jermaine Gresham, architect and designer Caleb Anderson, MSNBC news anchor and journalist Craig Melvin, news anchor Curtis Jackson, Grammy Award winning recording artist Dave Hollister, comedian Lavell Crawford, and singing and recording artists Pretty Ricki. He has also been featured at Ebony.com.

But designing hair isn’t enough for Greg.  He is also an accomplished photographer whose work has appeared in galleries and ads and has been used for stage sets on runways.  He specializes in portrait, fashion, artistic and journalistic photography.

Greg looks forward to continuing to work with creative personalities in exploring new ways of expression.
