Eddie was born to be a hair stylist, having grown up in his father Mohammed Altaweel’s salons in Michigan. He moved to Tampa, Florida after high school and began working toward his career as a hair stylist. Nearly 15 years later, his formal training has never ended…his insatiable appetite to grow his craft has taken him to every corner of the globe – from China to London and from New York City to Los Angeles. His exposure to advanced cutting techniques from institutions like Vidal Sassoon Academy and Toni & Guy have helped develop Eddie’s reputation for creating both precise short cuts – lobs & bobs – along with sassy & sexy flowing cuts ripped from the pages of Victoria’s secret.
Having grown up and working in ethnic communities in Michigan and South Florida, Eddie has become unusually-skilled at working with textured hair that is feared by many stylists for its difficulty in cutting and its resistance to hair color. Along the way, Eddie has become one of the few certified Goldwell Color Specialists in Florida and comfortably works with and after the use of Redken Shades EQ, Schwarzkopf Professional & Loreal.
In the past decade, Eddie attended a variety of hair extensions courses from the likes of HotHeads, HairTalk & Cinderella, and has developed a style all his own. His ability to instantly create change by adding volume & length is transformative for clients seeking to enhance their appearance in mere minutes.
Eddie also has quite the following of men’s cuts…his experiences have allowed him to combine the speed and precision guys appreciate from a barber with the incredible, varied skill set of a stylist. And to top it all off, Eddie is a masterful threading expert; leaving Eddie’s chair at McAllister Spa means he’s contemplated your entire look and has perfected it!
