Adam Lee Kenney
The day he graduated from Paul Mitchell Academy in Davenport, Iowa, Adam Lee Kenney’s moving truck was already waiting in the parking lot to whisk him toward a booming career in the Chicago area. Honing his craft in coloring and cutting techniques, Adam made a name for himself through his work at Chicago Male, eventually buying the salon with his business partner. As a new owner and manager, Adam gained insight on business processes, employee engagement, and the importance of community. With Adam’s leadership, the company gave back to its community through donations of goods and services, as well as free haircuts for local college students and less fortunate residents of the Boystown/Lake View area.
Ready for the next step in his career, Adam moved to Los Angeles in January 2016 while retaining his ownership with Chicago Male. With a desire to serve guests and a passion for the handiwork of hair styling, he has quickly built a strong LA clientele, leading to the launch of his new brand, and the founding of his second salon ‘The Studio by Adam Lee Kenney’. Adam’s reputation for quality work and a relaxing guest experience have made him a staple in L.A. as an expert hair professional. Adam continues to pursue a line of work that has brought him success—and given his guests joy and excitement with every visit.
