Ben Mollin on Hair Wars, Shear Genius, and His Favorite Hair Trends

October 13 at W Hotel in Scottsdale won't just be a typical Sunday night. It will be a chance for Arizona to get to know Ben Mollin and the most talented salon teams in Arizona, who will bring out all the stops during Hair Wars the Supreme Salon Tour.

Lucky for us, Mollin (whom you might recognize from Bravo's Shear Genius) is the host of this unforgettable hair affair. From a stylist doing hair out of his living room and record shops to being a world-renowned hair tamer and educator, his career has had quite the trajectory. Mollin caught up with Jackalope Ranch to dish on the upcoming event, chat about his love for brutal metal, how his wife and partner Angela inspires him, and how he considers himself the luckiest man in the world.
