After moving from Portland to New York to study dance and history, Claire realized she wanted a career that combined her artistic tendencies with her love of social interaction. She attended ARROJO cosmetology school and never looked back. A natural stylist, she was a first-class student who, immediately after graduation, applied for a job at ARROJO studio, citing her love for the versatility of razor-cutting, and the ongoing education. A fashion-forward and creative cutter, Claire completed our salon-floor training program at double speed, and already boasts credits for Alisha Trimble’s New York Fashion Week show, as well as having her work published on vogue.com. “I love working with my clients’ natural texture to create a style that works for their lifestyle, and makes them feel great,” she says.
