Stylist / Educator/ ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

I've been wanting to be a hairdresser my whole life. So I was delighted to meet Hector while working towards my cosmetology license, as a guest educator at the Aveda Institute where I attended beauty school. Hector soon became a mentor to me, inviting me to attend his Monday Assistant classes at the salon, helping to instill his signature “Hector Estrada Method” even before I graduated.

Hector's pristine attention to detail help lay the groundwork that would later shape my career. I started my career at Hector Estrada Salon (then called Rubio & Raven) the day after obtaining my license! 

Now on the floor full time, my favorite thing about hair is my ability to make clients feel beautiful while taking into account what they want and what I envision for them.

Art serves as a constant source of inspiration as well as what’s currently trending in fashion, style and music. I don't believe in making the client fit the hair...the hair has to fit the client and their individual needs.

Giving my clients easy, gorgeous, wearable hair that fits their lifestyle is always my biggest goal here at Hector Estrada Salon.
