NEW TALENT / Rising Star/ Best In-Salon Cook Ever 

 

I was drawn to the Hector Estrada Salon (then called Rubio & Raven) more than a year ago in hopes of training under Hector and being a part of the fastest growing salon in the Lower Haight.

From the start, I was impressed with the unique energy and the team atmosphere that so many salons seem to lack. We all work towards a common goal, not only growing professionally, but also personally, with each individual striving for our highest potential.

Hector, to me, is more than a mentor and role model – he serves as an inspiration that sets the pace and keeps all of us grounded. As I continue to hone and develop my skills, my style can be defined by its classic, beautiful shapes, with soft movable texture. My ongoing commitment to learning as much as I can keeps me driven, and I hope to grow my clientele as I expand this knowledge.

Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family.  They are my biggest motivation in life.  I also like to live a clean and healthy lifestyle, running, swimming, doing yoga and enjoying the San Francisco sun.

My mother passed her love of food down to me and I love to cook. On many days I can be found preparing one of my original recipes for my co-workers to sample in the salon kitchen.
