Get to know Elena Ruiz
I developed a love and deep affection for the newest hair color and styles many years ago, as soon as the color-style category was announced. It’s amazing how a style tweak can actually be the antidote to what ails; frankly, I think a lot of it has to do with simply seeing yourself in a different light. Putting color over your hair is one thing but making hair look amazing requires some mad skills that only a great colorist will have. I also think that making beauty changes—as trivial as they seem—plays a major role in the quality of life, not just by creating the confidence that comes from knowing you look good, but by lifting each of us out of the routine life.
Elena Ruiz has it all. Her work is professional yet natural. I always get compliments on my color wherever I go and I have come to realize the importance of hair color.
Born and raised in Los Angeles California, Elena Ruiz realized her passion for beauty at a young age.
