Stylist | Color Apprentice
Rafael loves to create. Whether it’s a hairstyle for a client, planning a concept and looks for a photo shoot, an up-do for a bride or a character for a film, he loves to create.
Rafael has been in the beauty industry for more than 20 years, much of it in NYC’s top salons. He has seen and used almost every trend and technique in his career and has had many great opportunities to expand his career beyond the salon. He has done hair for the film, has done platform presentations for the naturally- based product company, Aveda. While with Aveda, he also co-taught haircutting classes, new hire introduction classes, and consumer clinics, which introduced Aveda products to their clients. He also has done hair for two seasons for Oscar de la Renta’s shows at Fashion Week.
Rafael believes his greatest successes have been achieved through collaboration. Rafael once asked a mentor of his what was his mentor’s greatest tool. His mentor replied, “ My ears. Without them, I cannot know what direction my client wants to go, what are their wants and dislikes”. This is the mindset Rafael approaches every endeavor. Come talk with Rafael and see what you and he can create.
