Bruce has been in the hair industry for over 29 years. At age 20 he opened his first salon in Indianapolis, Indiana. Upon moving back to Dallas in 1998, Bruce and Allane O’Neil opened the first Osgood O’Neil Salon. They now have four locations in Dallas together, and he still loves working on the floor with his clients every day. Bruce and the salon's educators designed their intensive and prestigious 3,000-hour apprenticeship program, which has since trained over 100 stylists and colorists. Developing inexperienced people into strong hairdressers is a number one priority for Bruce. The key to this success is creating an environment for hairstylists to hone their craft through education within Osgood O’Neil and top educators in the industry.
