Master Stylist - Color Specialist 


I’m Rafael, and I’m a Tampa based Master Stylist specializing in brunette, blonde, dimensional blonding techniques, and hand-tied and tape hair extensions.

I spent the first years of my career working in big, busy salons and teaching part-time. I learned so much and had the opportunity to work with many amazing stylists. Over time, I found myself wanting to be an independent artist. That’s why I opened my own studio in 2010. I love having the freedom to tailor your experience to your needs. It lets me create a salon experience that is relaxing, safe, friendly, and professional for everyone.

Your time is valuable to me. I don’t believe in double booking, and I only take care of one client at a time. Appointments are booked accordingly so you’re guaranteed a one-on-one experience and never feel rushed or your color service is unattended.


I can’t wait to welcome you.

Master color EXPERT! Rafael uses awesome products and is a joy to visit. I went to the same salon for almost 2 decades. The salon has changed ownership and things just weren't the same. A friend recommended Rafael and I am thrilled! My hair looks amazing! So happy to find him first in my search for a new stylist.

Rafael is the best thing that has ever happened to my hair. Six years ago I met him through a recommendation and decided to let hime color and cut my unruly hair. I have not let anyone touch my hair since. He is methodical and great at offering advice and trying new techniques to help me make the best of my naturally frizzy curly hair. He works magic and cuts my hair using techniques that make it very easy to manage and maintain at home. This is something that no other stylist was ever able to do for me. I love every visit and would highly reccomend his services to anyone I know. All of the women in my family rely on Rafael to make them feel beautiful.

Rafael is excellent. He always listens to exactly what I want, makes suggests, and then confirms exactly what he will be doing. I have so much confidence in his work that I got my mother (74 yrs old) and my sister-in-law to have their hair cut by Rafael also! Not only is he an excellent stylist, but he is a genuinely nice person. He cares very much for his clients and their well-being. He makes sure you look good so you will feel good!

When you're sitting in his chair, you have absolutley nothing to worry about!

Having short hair as a woman, it's difficult to trust just anyone to cut my hair. Rafael walked me through how he planned on cutting it and explained why. He listened to my questions and concerns. I refer Rafael to everyone I meet. He's he best! - Steph B.

I have thick bushy grey hair. I have never gotten more compliments since Ralph became my hair dresser. It's like my hair was dead and Ralph literally brought it back to life. Jamie Cullaro
