Valerie Ruiz

Valerie has always had an artistic and creative side and dreamed of one day becoming a hairstylist. In 2015 at only18 years old she decided to pursue a career in cosmetology.A year later she joined Bella West and became an apprentice to two very talented stylists. For three years she worked hard and learned as much as she could from them while building her own clientele.

Today, Valerie continues to learn not only from everyone around her but also takes classes to keep up with trends and to better herself as a stylist. She also educates her clients on proper at home hair care.

She specializes in balayage, color melts, and dimensional colors. When it comes to hair cutting she specializes in a technique called slide cutting which creates long and short layers for a unique texture.
