Australian stylist Troy Thompson is making waves over in the States, a fact that won’t surprise his many fans Down Under. The charismatic hairdresser has worn many hats, from author to TV host, producer, celebrity stylist, salon owner and TAFE Ambassador – often all at once, and after moving to America in 2013, shows no signs of slowing down.
During his Australian career Troy appeared on such iconic programs as The Morning Show, A Current Affair, Today Tonight and more. Now he is taking those skills and adapting them to his American audience, as the first ever male co-host on Good Things Utah, The Daily Dish and The Midday Show. For these roles and his stint as host and executive producer of The Younger You with Troy Thompson, based on his best-selling book, he has received two nominations at the Rocky Mountains Emmy Awards. This year he was announced as the new Co-Anchor of the 4pm news/Abc4 and as the entertainment reporter for all Abc4 News Utah Programs.
Juggling his career in entertainment with many important roles entrenched in the hairdressing industry, as an ambassador for apprentice students at Tafe NSW and a salon owner for his Potts Point location, Troy is a testament that stylists really can have it all.
Styling celebrities, salon clients and live shows, it’s Troy’s appreciation for the creativity of hairstyling, business understanding and education that has seen his career transition seamlessly from Australia to America.
We can’t wait to see what he does next.
