As a Coachella Valley resident of Palm Springs, Damaris first found inspiration in the art of drawing that would lead her down the path of hairstyling. Her other artistic talents with photography and music evolved into a desire to express her creativity and passion through hair.
After graduating cosmetology school in 2010 and finding a salon where her education continued, she pursued additional training that would later contribute to the advancement of her craft. After landing a position in a salon with an emphasis on further training, she felt motivated and inspired by fellow artists to combine her existing talents with a new level of creative expression. It was no surprise to find the synergy between these worlds and their integration fed her thirst for knowledge through further education. Her repertoire includes training through Toni & Guy, Wella, Sebastian, Jo Blackwell, Moroccan Oil and Keratin Complex. She eventually took a leap of faith in 2013 to pursue a more independent path.
Damaris had reached a point in her career where she felt motivated to open new doors for creativity and growth. She began reaching out to people by networking and forming new relationships while investing efforts in new inspiration to becoming an “Individual” in a team. Being on her own forced Damaris to take a fresh look at opportunities that would stimulate her creativity. Applying for scholarships and entering hair competitions led her to Sebastian What’s NEXT Awards. After her second year as an entrant, she was thrilled to become a finalist in a national competition, where she went on to win the Professional category in the Sebastian What’s NEXT 2016 Awards.
Styling at New York Fashion Week with the Sebastian Team, attending and presenting at CONNECT in Las Vegas and being a professional judge at the 5th Annual Sebastian What’s NEXT Awards are just some of the opportunities arising from having chosen to follow her artistic path of transformation. She has been very fortunate to work alongside incredibly talented artists that have contributed to her emergence as a professional hairstylist.
Damaris’ focus is to provide an unwavering level of service for her clientele, transforming what works for each of her individual guests. As Vidal taught, we are more than just a hairstylist; we allow people to experience moments of joy that extend beyond the chair. They take home what we see as beautiful in each one of them.
