RIP Tom Holcomb

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Tom Holcomb earlier today.

Tom was the greatest nail technician in the history of the industry. Tom's successes include 10 times World Champion, 5 times Japan Master, 2 times International Champion in Düsseldorf and 2 times International Champion in Munich. In total, Tom won more than 200 competitions during his 26 year career.

Tom was the Creative Director of EZ Flow and later was a co-founder of Entity Systems. Tom educated many thousands of nail technicians during his career and his students - which includes many competition champions - will remember Tom for his tremendous skill, his humour, kindness and humility.

We never had the great fortune to meet Tom - but he inspired Iryna who followed his successes while she was a young nail tech in Ukraine and he has always been her nail idol. She created the tips today as her tribute to the great man.
