Maria Gonzalez ~ Owner / Senior Stylist

Bio:

My name is María González and I was born in Irapuato Guanajuato México. I became orphaned at an early age, it seemed almost impossible to educate myself, but I always thought of overcoming obstacles through studying. I had many economic obstacles, but studying and working hard always brought me through. My passion was serving others and that is when I decided to become a hair stylist.

Mi nombre es María González y nací en Irapuato Guanajuato México. Soy huérfana a temprana edad, me parecía casi imposible educarme, siempre pensé en la superación y pensaba que un camino era a través de estudio. Tuve muchos obstáculos económicos, estudiaba y trabajaba desde muy joven y cuando se me agotaron los recursos para estudiar, tomé la decisión de ser estilista. 

Experience:

I started from the bottom, my first teacher was Mrs. Isabel, she taught me at home. Then I went to the Beauty Academy called Venice, and I graduated from there. The year I came to the United States and entered the school to get my license, I worked in several salons in Los Angeles and I knew I wanted something more. I started taking advanced classes with different companies and after 5 years I moved to Northern California and started my own Beauty Salon with three chairs and lots of faith! At first I was alone and soon enough hair stylists began to arrive and now I have owned a successful hair salon for 18 years.

Comencé desde abajo, mi primera maestra era la señora Isabel, ella me ensenaba en su casa. Después pude ir a la Academia de Belleza llamada Venecia, y allí me gradué.  Al ano me vine para los Estados Unidos y entre a la escuela para sacar mi licencia. Trabaje en varios salones en Los Ángeles CA y yo sabía que quería algo más. Comencé a tomar clases avanzadas con diferentes compañías y a los 5 años me mudé al norte de California y comencé mi propio Salón de Belleza con tres sillas y mucha fe! Al comienzo era yo sola y comenzaron a llegar estilistas y los comencé a llevar a educarse.
