Linh Phan - @BESCENE

Founder and stylist at Bescene Studios in Kensington, MD, Linh Phan and his visionary color work is a perennial favorite with beauty obsessed Instagrammers, bloggers and stylists alike. It wasn't very long ago (after graduating cosmetology school) that Linh began cutting and coloring hair in a small space in his uncle's basement. Word spread quickly about his innovative use of color and cuts, leading him to create Bescene Studios, a true collaborative space where some of the industry's favorite colorists now call home. In just a few years, his beautiful ombré and balayage work, as well as his gift for color correction have made him a social media and industry favorite. Linh loves a challenge and feels blessed to receive so much industry love and appreciation for his posts on social media that highlight his techniques as well as his biggest transformations! In 2017, Linh has taken his passion for education on the road, teaching his favorite tips and tools as well as social media insight with salon pros across the US and Europe.  He is fortunate to have a team of sponsors that believe in and support his art, including Schwarzkopf Professional and Brazilian Bond Builder. Linh is incredibly excited to continue sharing his love of hair with fellow industry artists. #BESCENE
