We are very excited to announce that Shanna Moll Studio has a new team member joining us, Senior Stylist Lisa Ortiz Figueroa. Lisa is excited to offer her services of hair design, coloring and special occasion makeup and hair. She is also grateful to be working with people with hair loss. Get to know Lisa!
Where are you from?
I am originally from Puerto Rico, but I grew up in Round Rock so I’m very familiar with Austin and this area.
How did you get into the hair industry?
I actually went to college for Human Relations. Once my kids were a little older we ended up moving to Florida, where I went to The Salon Professional Academy to become a hairdresser. Then we moved to Dallas for my husband’s job, where I worked for Beauty and Hair for 5 years before moving to Austin. I’ve also been a licensed makeup artist since 2006, which is another interest of mine.
How did you find Shanna Moll Studio?
Shanna found me! She was looking to hire a stylist and we had a mutual connection, the VP of Jon Renau, who recommended me to her and helped us meet to see if it would be a good fit. We hit it off immediately and I’m excited to be able to work in the hair loss industry, while also being able to do mainstream hair as well!
What’s your favorite thing about Austin?
Well... I’ve been back in Austin since May, and I would definitely say that my favorite thing about Austin is just having my family and friends close to me!
How did you get into hair loss solutions?
I think of myself as a “hair geek” because I’ve always loved hair, and I got a job working as a bilingual sales rep for the alternative hair company, Beauty and Hair. After awhile, the CEO decided to transfer me to productions, where I started producing videos for them and holding photoshoots for the company. People would always quiz me about the kind of hair the model was wearing and what color it was so I got really good at telling the difference between the pieces. I fell in love with meeting new people and helping them with their hair loss journey, which just became another reason for me to love the hair industry.
