He has traveled and earned industry recognition as an educator and artistic team member for major companies, including Carlton Hair International, Schwarzkopf and Devachan. His love of the craft happened unexpectedly when he was 13 years old and was surfing in California with a few friends who owned a hair salon. He was invited to hang out in their salon. As soon as he was old enough to apprentice his dream began. Passion grew and he eventually became a stylist.. When Dueñas realized how beautiful and happy his clients were when they left his chair, he knew he’d found his creative outlet.

Dueñas was best able to express his creativity through education. Teaching all over the United States, his passion grew by the day. Through education he found freelance work and was drawn toward editorial work and photo shoots. After realizing his passion was growing for photo work, Dueñas took the next step. He packed his bags and moved from California to New York to increase his client base on both coasts.

Now an experienced celebrity stylist with eight years of education and experience in the industry, Dueñas is using the knowledge he’s gained to create something truly unique with HAIR ROOM SERVICE.
