"I find inspiration in everything," says Lorena, who started her hair career when she was 18 years old. "I love what I do and it never feels like work."
Lorena began her career in the hair industry working at Carlton Hair International. There she worked with amazing leaders that helped her develop the art of working with hair and the discipline for a strong work ethic. Working at Carlton hair International is where Lorena learned the Vidal Sassoon foundation of doing classic and creative haircuts and haircolor.
After 7 years, Lorena left the nest to work for Amadeus Spa in Pasadena, CA where she learned the Toni and Guy foundation of cutting and went through the color program working with Wella and Redken hair color. After her second year with Amadeus Spa, Lorena became a cutting instructor and helped re-establish the apprentice program. In addition, Lorena continued advanced training courses with the Vidal Sassoon academy. While working at Amadeus, Lorena was able to work on the Tournament of Rose Court for over nine years.
Ten years later, Lorena moved on to work at Essence Hair Salon, also in Pasadena, where she worked for just over one year. She has attended many advanced cutting classes and hair runway shows. Lorena explains, "I've recently reconnected with Sally Rogerson, former senior creative director for the Vidal Sassoon academy. Sally developed her own company, SR Education, and she is amazing. Advanced training is very important to me."
And here we are today at Lot 15 Salon.
"Doing hair is an endless adventure," says Lorena. "I have this appetite for learning and creativity that I will never be able to satisfy."
