Behind the Artist

 Cecelia- an advanced color and cutting Artist local to Boulder Colorado.

I am a passionate hair artist. Crazy in love with my craft and wild about the industry.

 Growing up I always knew I would be the artist behind the chair. At an early age I tore magazine adds out, taping them throughout my journals, studying the models and concepts for hours. I was constantly sketching portraits, makeup, head shapes, hairstyles and images I would find. School was boring but the beauty world was not. Every morning before school I would watch music videos and be enamered by the fashion. It was clear to me this is what I wanted to be doing.

 I worked passionately in makeup for seven years before advancing my career into hair. I was certified through Regency Beauty Institute to work in fashion on all levels. Shortly after completing school, I took a two year advanced color and cutting corse through the Van Michael institute. I worked closely with a master stylist for a short time focused on the art of three dimensional cutting/razor work. This has given me my edge. Allowing me to put my unique mark on every client I see. I love the excitement I hear from my guests raving about how great their hair grew out!

I am slightly obsessed with the celeb world which keeps me current in my craft. I always stay up to date on the latest trends, shapes, shades and textures to work in the most modern look for my client. I take weekly cutting courses online through Hair Story Studio out of New York. Hair Story has been such an inspiration in the evolution of my career. I like to incorporate modern pieces in every cut I perform. I am especially fond of Wes Sharpton's work.

I am currently working with contour coloring, as this is where the world of highlights is shifting. I am a Kevin Murphy and Aveda certified Colorist, specializing in platinum- contour color, 3D cutting, male/fades, the art of hair, and educating clients on how to get "their look".

December 2016, Raw Artist's showcase in Denver Colorado, featured my work for their annual Artist event. I worked with Makeup Artist Katie Brown and three models. Three looks in 2 hours was quite an undertaking! We had a blast and had the models walking the event wearing 4 Ft stilts. It was such a sight to see. A night of beauty, creativity, music and art. Tons of artists from around the area all under one roof sharing their hearts, and craft was truly beautiful. Here are just a few photos from the night. Will be participating in more of their events to come.
