Owner and Artistic Director
Paul Mitchell National Educator
Sergio graduated from a Paul Mitchell school in 2007. He started his career by working with Paul Mitchell National Educators in his first salon where they assembled an apprenticeship program to help in his technical growth. From the start, he attended as many advanced workshops he was able to attend in order to master skills like cutting, coloring and styling. After a few years behind the chair, he applied and was chosen to join the Paul Mitchell team as a National Educator!! He now travels to teach salons and schools new haircutting collections, trends, and product knowledge as well as working hair industry conventions and advanced workshops. With a style he calls a combination of classic, urban, and grunge, working behind the chair is his passion! He loves creating unique looks for his clients and “taking them through the seasons” by changing their haircuts and color palette throughout the year. He is consistently working on his technical skills and versatility by attending new certifications and assessments from the top hairstylists in the industry. Now the Owner and Artistic Director of Salon Masaya, his mission is to provide the best customer experience and to create “tailored hairstyles” that fit each client and reflects their own personal lifestyle.
“My passion is art. My inspiration is color. My prized possession are my hands. Being a hairstylist combines them together and that is why I love my career” Sergio Delgado
