Desirre Escobedo

Position: LEAD CREATIVE

Creative Team Leader

Pricing: $165 per hour


As an 11 year stylist Desirre’s experience comes from all areas of the industry. She has spent her time traveling internationally to work with celebrity stylists, teach those new to the industry & work on editorial sets. Her work has graced the cover of Modern Salon and has been seen in People Magazine after styling hair for personal friends, JD Scott & Annalee Belle.

While Desirre is grateful for the opportunities that have come her way, her favorite way to spend her time in the industry is intimately behind the chair & with her staff in class. Her goal with each person she meets is to not only provide good hair, but bring value to your life.

It is no shock that Desirre’s preferred clientele are those who are open-minded. She loves to share feedback on what she feels is suitable for your lifestyle while also encouraging you to go beyond your comfort zone. Her skill set in the salon is strictly dedicated to coloring & cutting but has no limits on the colors or shapes you enjoy.

When Desirre is not enjoying her Craft she is spending time with her husband & two young children. They enjoy traveling, snuggling their three dogs, a sunny day on a patio with a craft beer or any other outdoor activities. The simple life.
