One Salon was honored to have Joel Torres visit our salon this past Sunday. Joel was in town to share his knowledge and present his work to our staff of designers via a hands-on cutting class. This was an amazing opportunity for the One Salon staff to learn new cuts and techniques from someone who is truly on top of the industry.
For more than 10 years Joel has been working with TIGI. He is the PR Caribbean & Central America TIGI Talent Art Director. His role within the company takes him all over the Caribbean, South America and the United States where he gives educational seminars and presents his work as a TIGI Platform Artist on the stages of industry conventions. Being part of the TIGI team has allowed him to follow his two greatest passions: being continuously educated on the latest trends from around the globe and sharing his knowledge with fellow hairdressers and stylists.
Now based in Miami, Joel has more than 15 years in the beauty industry as a Celebrity & Session hairstylist / make up artist. His hard work, his desire to stay up to date with the lates trends in the industry and his passion for cut and color have earned him recognition in his native Puerto Rico as well as internationally. He has recently worked at New York Fashion Week, Miami Fashion Week and VOGUE USA Magazine Fashion Editorial. Joel has worked out of the most prestigious salons in Puerto Rico, and traveled to places like Australia, Holland, Argentina and New York (amongst others) as hairdresser to many famous personalities.
In spite of all his success, he is still very clear on his goals: “I hope to continue to present my work in cities not yet visited, and representing Puerto Rico with pride. I also want to continue my education in places like London, Spain and Canada.” Joel has found a new passion for making videos and photography where he can express all his creativity documenting all his work and travel experiences.
