Hola, here's a little bit about me

I began my career on the East Coast, I had the honor to work in some of the most prestigious salons in CT, FL, and NY. Today with over a decade as a hair artist I, Rosa Mercedes am based in the Reno/Tahoe area and specialize in layered cuts, blow-outs, multi-dimensional color, highlighting, ombre's, bayalage, grey coverage and more. My skills and talent have lead me to do fabulous work in up-styling and make up for all special occasions.

I had the honor to be part of the hairstyling team for NYC Bridal Fashion week for Pnina Tornia and Mark Zunio— 2016 Spring Collection at Kleinfeld “Say Yes To The Dress,’ Boutique. Recently have had the pleasure to do the hair and make up for  Joann Davis's dress collection and Renee Pawele Jewelry Designer collection photo shoot. I am also one of the hair artists, in La Di Da Beauty, an elite on-site bridal hair and make up team in the Reno/Tahoe area. I have earned many certificates by Top professional brands such as: Wella Cutting class, Deva Curl, Unite Hair, Babe Hair extensions, Big and Sexy, MAC, and more. 

Continuing education is key! I am always enthusiastic to learn the most current techniques, trends, and products so I can provide exceptional services to my guest, but most of all to enhance their beauty while keeping the integrity of their hair. There is no great hair, if there is no integrity. I use Olaplex (an additives that prevents breakage) in all her color services in addition to the hair color that has no ammonia or PPD. My styling products range for all hair types from frizzy curly thick hair, to the thinnest and shortest hair.


My goal is to make the world beautiful one person at a time.
