Stephanie Sepulveda knew what she wanted to do in high school: to create looks with hair that would make people feel happy and confident. “It felt natural to me,” she shares. She graduated from BOCES with her cosmetology certificate and has been working in the industry ever since.
Over the last decade, she has explored her innate talent by helping clients feel they are the best version of themselves. A double threat: Sepulveda is highly skilled at both color and styling.
A genius when it comes to transforming lackluster hair into luscious locks, she realizes that “getting your hair done really makes a big difference. Someone could have a bad day and they walk out with their hair nice, and they feel so much better about themselves.”
She focuses on the health of the hair, ensuring her clients know how to take care of their manes, often recommending the right products and explaining what to do at home.
Her specialty is a seamless look — excelling in what she calls “lived-in hair”: soft color or peekaboo highlights that are subtle enough that they can grow out naturally, but can change a client’s whole image: ideal for the color newbie.
Her meticulous attention to detail helps her execute an immaculate job — every time. “I love when the client tells me ‘That’s exactly what I wanted.’ I’ve gotten that a lot,” she laughs. “Which is nice. It’s rewarding to me.”
Certified in Keratin and extensions, Sepulveda’s signature services are balayage, cuts, blow dry, and updos.
