She is driven not by ego, but by accomplishments. Claudia Cruz, a Poughkeepsie native, first began her journey in the beauty industry 6 years ago. With her mother also being a hair stylist, she was exposed to the business at a young age. Some say it was destiny, while others may say it was in her blood. Claudia learned to express her artistic side through hair. She loves when a challenge walks through the door and delivers a customized finish for each individual, not just ‘copy and paste.’ Since graduating from Capri Cosmetology Learning Center, she has continued to invest in her education of the beauty industry. She has taken classes on advanced hair cutting and color, hair painting, bridal hair/makeup with celebrity artists and many more classes in between. Claudia is also certified in hair extensions.
Claudia’s work has been recognized on major social media pages and websites. She has also been published on online magazines including Modern Salon and Behind The Chair. Claudia loves making people feel their best and continues her education in order to satisfy clients with up-to-date looks. She loves doing creative styles on short or long hair, hair painting, vivid colors, creating styles for formal events, and doing makeup for special occasions. Claudia is a very versatile artist who will make sure that you leave happy and will keep you coming back for more.
