Darren Peña - Owner, Creative Director, and Stylist
Years behind the chair:
Cooking, dancing, shopping, running, and having fun in everything I do.
Over sharing, bad fashion, and running late.
7" fan out shears
Currently I'm loving One's Epic Lite Dryer
Legacy HD Flat Iron
What inspires you about doing hair?
My passion is in making people feel good about themselves and embracing their own natural beauty. I find inspiration in nature and architecture and even in going to the mall and seeing different textures and shapes. (Did I say I love shopping??)
Favorite era for style:
I love the 70's and the 80's. Being able to use texture and smoothness all in one look makes me happy.
What makes you special?
I think what makes me special is my ability to listen. I am able to make someone feel extremely comfortable and trust what is about to happen.
My hairstylist of 15 years left the area last year. I was DEVASTATED!! I had gone to about 3 different stylists before getting a groupon that led me to Darren. He was very professional and knew exactly what I wanted done to my hair!! After a year of searching, I finally found another stylist as I like as well as my old one!! Thanks Darren!!
