Growing up in Australia, hairstylist and businessman Rodney Cutler was destined to be involved in sports one way or another. “Sports is more admired than anything in Australia, other than health,” says Cutler, who entered hairstyling at the tender age of 16.
But following a semi-pro Australian football career, Cutler, 44, ended any professional sports dreams when he visited New York for the first time at age 25. “I went into Bumble and bumble [salon on 56th street] and I was like, Wow!” he remembers. “At that point, I saw my career was not going to be football. I needed to get all into hair.”
