I waited until I was 27 to go to Capri, with a feeling I was too old at the time. All the other students were around 18 and right out of High School. I persevered and graduated at 28 at landed my first job as a shampoo person for about a year. I moved up and got a chair at a salon which ended up closing, so I took a job at the mall cutting kids hair for 2 years. Not the perfect job but, this is where I learned how to be a good Barber. With a desire to improve my skills further and become more rounded, I started taking jobs in different salons. I would learn advanced color techniques in one place and cutting and hair styling in another. At 33 yrs. old I wound up getting a job on Madison Ave. and stayed there for a few years. With a passion to take it to the next level I left the salon and took a position with ABC Overnight News styling hair for the anchors. Nothing ground breaking but, I was progressing…..and that’s when I got a huge break working on set for the film “A Beautiful Mind”. That’s where I met some truly amazingly talented beauty professionals. These people had been in the business for years and showed me there was much more to learn by working on films. Eventually, I did well enough for my work to be seen by others in the industry and was offered a position to run the Hair and Makeup Department at “Good Morning America” where I spent 10 great years working on celebrities too numerous to count. I just recently walked away from GMA to start my own brand “Patrick Alemi Hair “. Moral of my story, as others have said before, you are never too old and be careful what you ask for… may just get it…….La Dolce Vita!
