Nick Arrojo is a celebrated stylist who has been working in the industry for more than two decades. Arrojo, who was born in Manchester, England in 1966, began his career with Vidal Sassoon. He became the youngest ever Assistant Creative Director for Vidal Sassoon when he was only 21.
After ten years at the salon, he moved to London where he worked with the Wella Team. In 1994, he attracted New York’s prominent and acclaimed salon, Bumble and Bumble, where Arrojo became Director of Education. Several years later he established his own salon, Arrojo Studio in New York City, which now bustling and admired, has recently expanded to 15,000 square feet.
Arrojo is a household name due to his effervescent appearances on TLC’s What Not To Wear. Beyond his appearances on the show, Arrojo’s products are growing in popularity and are sold at his Varick Street salon, Space NK stores in both New York and the UK, and on QVC. Arrojo’s products are easy to use and custom designed to suit all hair types. As if that’s not enough, Arrojo also has a line of stylist videos for educational purposes. The videos, covering fundamentals, razor-use, color, bob, layers, and men’s cuts, are designed to improve control, flexibility and style, and will, according to Arrojo’s online store, “unlock your true creative potential.” Arrojo has also written Great Hair, a book that reveals his style secrets to the everyday woman and features real women as his models.
