"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
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."
