Hilda Contreras has been in the hair coloring business since 1997. Contreras brings a very calming demeanor, an expert eye for knowing what color hues will look best on what skin tones and is mostly known for her very natural, sun kissed looks. Contreras always accepts a good color-correction challenge, knowing that her professional skills will give customers the hair color experience they intended to have.
At the start of her career, Louis Licari, a hair industry icon who was often referred to as “The King of Color”, mentored Contreras. After a three-year grueling training period, she worked at his very busy and well-respected salon for 10 years. She has also worked as a key colorist on several television shows and commercials and featured films doing hair color for many of today’s biggest celebrities. Hilda moved over to Cristophe where she now spends her days at this very popular and successful salon. For the past 8 years, Contreras has grown her core business by working along side hair styling legends.
