Hasblady Guzman

Owner

With over 30 years of extensive experience in the beauty industry, Hasblady comes from a long line of hairdressers – her mother, aunt and brother all share her deep love of great hair.

She relocated to the US from Bogota, Colombia in 1982 and quickly opened her extremely successful salon, Renaissance Hair Studio, at 21 years old. In 2002, she expanded by opening a second salon, Bokaos Aveda Pasadena- the recipient of immediate rave reviews- and eventually a third location followed in Glendale in 2008. In 2009, she moved all three businesses to one, beautiful loft-esque location in the heart of Old Town Pasadena.

Hasblady’s education has been ceaseless; she has always continued to learn and expand her knowledge with advanced training from the likes of Vidal Sassoon in London, Toni and Guy in Chicago, Arrojo in New York, Fekkai in Los Angeles and Carsten Wilms. She is also certified for Hairdreams VOLUME+ MICROLINES, and is currently actively pursuing education in bridal make up artistry and airbrush techniques with make up giant MAC Cosmetics

She has worked with many celebrity clients for print and television projects, and has a special love for the styling, extensions and updos that feed her creative soul. An expert bridal stylist, Hasblady is renowned for her delicate and feminine updos and styling.

Alfred Guzman

Master Stylist

Alfred began his career in beauty at the age of 18, almost 25 years ago. He started working alongside his sister after beauty school and they have been a dynamic duo ever since. He has expansive education with Aveda, Vidal Sassoon in London, Arrojo in New York, Toni and Guy and Carsten Wilms. With a vast clientele, Alfred is in high demand and his clients always leave feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Suzi

Master Stylist

Suzi hasn’t aged in 25 years: she is our resident vampire. Suzi truly is a master at her craft through advancing her education and years of experience. She has trained in London, New York, and San Francisco with Redken, Vidal Sassoon, Orojo and Aveda. Suzi’s honesty and loyalty are unfounded, making her a treasure here at Bokaos Aveda. 

Farrah

Master Stylist / Aveda Ambassador

Farrah’s love of hair began with her own hair; cutting, bleaching and dying it any and every color. She knew she couldn’t sit still at a desk, so she decided to stand behind the chair. She pursued her license through Aveda Institute Los Angeles, where her love of nature and her love of hair could meet. Her passion for art and knowledge of color theory pushed her to excel in the creative atmosphere hair salons provide. With 11 years of experience, she has trained with Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, Hanzo, and Redken. 

Andrew

Master Cut Stylist

Andrew came to us from the Ukraine, having been an educator at Vidal Sassoon with decades of experience. His overall technical skill and eye for balance led him to specialize in cutting, though we have no doubt, if he ever pursued the life of a colorist he would master that as well.

Mitch

Advanced Stylist

15 years ago, a punk rock/emo boy began experimenting on his own hair (as well as victimizing friends and family) after lackluster results from salons. Unable to see hair as a lucrative career, he spun his wheels as an EMT, then majored in communication and worked for a radio station. Dying for a creative outlet, friends at Sally Hershburger extended an olive branch. He quit his salary job to begin an accelerated apprenticeship program, specializing in color. He had the opportunity to work alongside renowned stylists such as Allen Edwards and assisted on Dancing with the Stars and Dior fashion shows. He became an educator for Unite and began working in Beverly Hills and Malibu where he mastered keratin bonded extensions. Today, Mitch works on-set for multiple Netflix shows, music videos, and retains celebrity clientele throughout Los Angeles. He enjoys donating his time cutting the homeless in Hollywood with stylists of Chris McMillan Salon. Mitch’s dream is to open an animal rescue. When he isn’t working, he can be found hiking or kayaking with his dogs, bungee jumping and enjoying live, eclectic music.

Nicole’s creative artistic side gives her a confident eye for transforming her clients looks into something uniquely their own. With her exceptional attention to detail and passion for hair, Nicole is the go-to-girl for any classic look with a little bit of edge. She uses 15 years of intense training to achieve classic effortless looks. She continues to grow in this industry with ongoing education that keeps her updated on the latest trends.

Aly

Stylist Level 2

Aly grew up being creative, making various kinds of yarn bracelets which taught her all the intricate braiding techniques she uses today. Aly loves doing makeup and is a Certified Makeup artist from Ruby Make-up Academy. She received her cosmetology certification from Paul Mitchell and to further her hair education has attended classes at Vidal Sassoon in Santa Monica. 

Didem

Stylist Level 2

Meet Didem, a passionate stylist with a lifelong love for hair. As she grew up, her desire to enter the hair world only intensified, leading her to make the transition from the fashion industry to the world of beauty.

She studied at the Aveda Institute Los Angeles and trained with Vidal Sassoon in Beverly Hills. Didem believes in perfecting her craft through ongoing education and is inspired by Pablo Picasso’s quote, “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.” She was recognized early on as a finalist in the North American Hairstyling Awards.

For Didem, hairstyling is more than just a job or career – its a passion. She lives by the mantra and applies it to every aspect of her life, “Love what you do, do what you love.”

 

Tawny

Stylist Level 1

From a young age she loved doing her friends hair and make-up for various occasions, this led to her dream career of hairstyling and current standing of 6 years behind the chair. Guy Tang and Sam Villa Youtube videos began shaping Tawny as a stylist and continue to do so today as she strives to learn and advance within the industry. She is Bellami hair extension certified and has experience with Paul Mitchell and Aveda.
