Having been at Hector Estrada Salon for nearly four years now, I feel fortunate for the opportunity to be around such a talented, passionate and supportive group of individuals. I am grateful to have polished my craft under Hector's guidance and to work in this beautiful, elegant space every day.
As a stylist, one has the great opportunity to create a hair style that compliments each client's lifestyle needs and overall personal aesthetic. I often feel as though doing hair is much like being a painter and sculptor, as so much attention to detail is placed into each client’s individual look.
I love everything about hair––from the way it feels, to the way it moves. It’s exhilarating to have a client sit down and say: “Go for it! Do whatever you see, whatever you think will look good on me.” Building that trust with clients is an incredible feeling.
My preferred hair aesthetic reflects that of effortlessly beautiful, natural-looking hair. When cutting hair, I like to provide the right amount of texture within a classic cut. And with coloring, I often tell clients that my goal is to give them an overall natural and “sun-kissed” look––color that looks as if they just came back to San Francisco from spending the summer at the beach.
