Ben Mollin's Summary

Ben Mollin was born November 29th 1974 on the South Side of Chicago. Ben recognized his passion for the arts early in his life. A born entertainer Ben picked up a saxophone at age 8. With the support of his family he began Jazz lessons at age 10 and was privately taught by Tenor sax player Kent Lemon. His passion for beauty began around that time as he was intrigued by Vidal Sassoon commercials of the early ‘80’s.
Immediately going to study cosmetology after High School, Ben has always pursued his passion for music, learning how to play 10 different instruments. “Hair was always something which allowed me to work in three dimension and allowed me to develop an understanding of anatomy” he recalls. At 21 he owned and operated his first salon and has been a gypsy of sorts playing in different bands and working on photo shoots, movies and runways along the way.
In 2007, the debut of “Shear Genius,” Bravo - TV’s reality competition for hairdressers, one of the genuine surprises was Ben Mollin. The tattooed, music - loving stylist was eccentric and humble. But he also exhibited an eagerness to learn and a passion for his craft, so much that Sally Hershberger and Vidal Sassoon commended him for his raw talent and his growth over the course of the competition. And grow he did, right into the number two spot - taking second place and outdistancing the thousands of other stylists who auditioned.
Thanks to his hard work after the show and becoming a guest artist with ISO he’s recognized all over the world. He hosts and judges The Supreme Salon Tour “Hairwars,”. He’s in demand for personal appearances, video projects and more. Mollin was featured in “50 Hairstylists,” a book featuring the fifty most influential hairdressers in the country. His passion and raw talent for his craft has turned him into one of the most exciting innovative hairdressers in the industry.
