Mark Esparza I have wanted to be a hairstylist ever since I can remember. It’s in my blood. My mom and grandma were both hairstylists, and my grandpa owns his own barbershop where he still works six days a week. When I was little I played with dolls and braided their hair. As a teenager I explored many many hairstyles, with the help of my mother. After graduating San Jose state with a bachelors degree in sociology, I decided to explore my passion for hair in the cosmetology program at San Jose city college. It was the best decision I ever made. Now I get to play with real life dolls and do much more than braid their hair. My passion lies in enhancing the beauty of each person sitting in my chair through creative haircuts, cutting edge color services and beautiful styling.
