stylist + educator
Juan started his hairdressing career in 1998. After graduating Roffler Barber School he worked and trained in an Aveda salon near the U.T. campus. He honed his skills working with some very talented stylists but he craved more and went on to train with the director of education at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, California. Taking 3, 4 and 5 day creative courses- this is where he began to see hair as more of an art form than just style.
Juan has an insatiable lust for knowledge and growth. He's attended numerous creative cutting courses at Vidal Sassoon Salons between Chicago and San Francisco. He's completed the Master Colorist training with Goldwell in New York and Vancouver. And he continues to inspire us all to never get complacent.
Throughout his career, Juan has met so many wonderful clients that he is proud to call friends!
Juan is not only our Cutting Educator but a Founding Stylist of Black Orchid Salon. He's trained and mentored many incredible stylists in Austin, including several of our proteges, Kate, Fernando and Meshelle.
