Licensed in 2017, Ariel started her career as a stylist at Moxi Hair Studio working directly with the owner, Shannon, for her entire first year in the industry. Ariel has grown to be a phenomenal stylist and clients love that Ariel is relatable, kind, and a great listener. She loves to laugh and tries not to take life too seriously.
Born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, Ariel comes from a family of hairstylists. Inspired by watching her aunt and cousins doing hair growing up, Ariel decided she wanted to follow in their footsteps.
Not only does Ariel have a fresh artistic and creative talent, but she really takes the time to listen to her clients’ needs and ideas. What she loves is to make people feel good about themselves
whether that be giving them a new cut, fresh color, a relaxing scalp massage in the shampoo
bowl, or giving them a glam look for the night. “The most important thing to me is being able to see my client happy and smiling when leaving the salon. It’s the best feeling in the world.”
Ariel is highly skilled in both cutting and coloring of all hair types and textures, she has been
inspired to help others who have curly hair to develop a loving relationship with their own curls
and natural texture. Ariel loves her crown of curls (something that she has learned to do over
time). Ariel came up with an idea to create a special treatment and haircut service for people
with curls so that she can create the right shape and educate others on how to take care of curly
hair at home-we have decided to name this service Love Your Curls.
