Duncan Brothers School of Hair Design has long recognized the need for a professional outlook concerning the education of today’s hairstylists. Since job placement is a major concern, the reputation of Duncan Bros. School of Hair Design is a valuable benefit to the future hairstylists. Because of this reputation, Duncan Bros. School of Hair Design has remained the enduring link between the new hairstylist and the major salon.
Don Duncan was the co-founder of a chain of salons in 1974. Throughout his career he has attended advanced workshops and numerous schools taught by the most elite in our industry. His dream to educate evolved by bringing all that he had learned back to Oklahoma to teach the fashions of tomorrow to today’s students, hairdressers and salon owners. This knowledge served as the basis for Don to leave the ownership of salons and introduce Duncan Bros. School of Hair Design. The dream began in 1981 with the first school in Oklahoma City and quickly grew to “waiting list only” status. Under Don’s direction, the school continues to grow and expand, most recently, with a second campus opening in 2006 in Edmond, Oklahoma.
