Carlos Featured in The LA Fashion Magazine

Carlos recently sat down with Lauren at LA Fashion Magazine to talk about balayage and so much more! Here is a little snippet of the article:

Finding a hair stylist that is right for you can be a tremendous task – especially finding one that not only appreciates the art of coloring hair, but also has the knowledge and experience necessary to do it right. This is where L’Oreal certified Carlos Rodriguez, hair painting genius and balayage aficionado, steps in. Rodriguez also specializes in Japanese permanent thermal hair straightening and keratin hair smoothing treatments. You can book an appointment with him at the Sally Hershberger salon in West Hollywood, but East-coasters have no fear! He will be taking over the Sally Hershberger salons in New York from time to time, so keep on watch.

Rodriguez is no stranger to beauty. He was born in Cuba and raised in Los Angeles, where colors and cultures converge to invite inspiration and vision. He works individually with each client to make sure his or her inner beauty is captured and portrayed through his work. He has an extensive client list of celebrities and unique individuals that keep returning to his chair and each of his clients is treated like family members; his warm, positive energy makes the time spent at the salon an unforgettable experience.

Our team at The LA FASHION stopped by to witness the unique work of Rodriguez firsthand and he shared with us some insight on the work he does.
