Hector Estrada, co-founder and creative director, has had a passion for styling hair – and connecting with the person inside – since he was a child. Over the years, this vision developed into his unique, customized approach to coloring and styling hair to achieve a look that compliments his clients’ busy lifestyles which we call the “Hector Method.” For Hector it's all about simplicity. To further streamline his clients’ hair routine at home, Hector launched his Hector Estrada System hair products – a shampoo, conditioner, masque and dry shampoo. The line is an extension of Hector’s approach to hair – it’s all about simplicity. Each botanically-based hair product is designed to be the only one of its type needed, replacing a shelf full of products. Hector Estrada combines his artistry and proven techniques with an ability to discover and connect with extraordinary talented new stylists and train them in his approach. All of our stylists have been personally trained by Hector in his disciplined approach to bringing out each client’s best look. Whether a men’s or women’s haircut or trim, full highlights, balayage or ombre, our stylists will create a beautiful look that compliments your personal style. And for those special events, we offer deep conditioning treatments and style services for weddings and other special occasions.
Beyond our #1 goal - to achieve the right style for you - we strongly believe in giving back to our community - whether it be our neighborhood and city or the world at large - by actively supporting charitable organizations throughout the year.
