Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Creative Director of Tribeca ColorSalon (http://www.tribecasalon.com), Brandon Wagner, announces the addition of Rachel Rodriguez to their “Residency”. This intense apprentice program trains young hairdressers to be the best and brightest stylists in Tampa Bay, and each of these Residency sessions are lead by a “Guest Artist.” The program has been going on for around 2 years, and allows participants to hone their craft.
Master stylist & educator Rachel Rodriguez has joined Tribeca’s ranks to add her talents and expertise to the apprenticeship program. She will be working collaboratively with the staff and teaching them the invaluable skills that have led her to be a specialist in the fields of razor cutting and barbering. “The reason why we brought her on is because she had such an amazing resume and we felt she would really complement the staff,” says Wagner. Rodriguez’s expertise has allowed her to work as a celebrity session stylist for celebrities ranging from the Jonas Brothers, Mariah Carey, Idina Menzel, and Natalie Portman.
Rachel’s unique hair stylist vision has been showcased in New York, Los Angeles, and currently in Tampa Bay at Tribeca ColorSalons. Rodriguez began her career as a stylist with Toni and Guy in 2000, where she honed her skills and moved to New York to work with Aveda. In 2004, she accepted a senior stylist position with Ted Gibson, which afforded her the opportunity to style hair during New York Fashion Week for the hit television shows “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” and “America’s Next Top Model.”
In 2007, Rachel Rodriguez began working directly with Nick Arrojo as a senior stylist and educator at Arrojo Studios. There she began teaching classic Vidal Sassoon techniques as well as razor fundamental classes. With these skills under her belt, she travelled all over the United States to collaborate with other top educators in the industry. Her work has been featured in publications such as Italian Vogue, Elle, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, Women’s Wear Daily, and Allure.
“I believe that hair is like a fabric to be shaped and molded into a structured cut that matches my client’s desires, making them feel and look amazing," says Rodriguez. It is this dedication to the details and her client’s input that have allowed the former “Real L Word” reality TV star to excel as a master hair stylist.
Brandon Wagner agrees saying, “Rachel’s background and experience allow her to bring a lot of talent and expertise to the table. Having her be a guest artist at our salons will not only increase the skillset of all the stylists she works, but will also further improve the quality of cuts our staff will be able to provide our customers. Saying we’re excited to have her would be a huge understatement!”
