As owner of AVA hair studio, Claudia prides herself in continuing education. Upon receiving her California cosmetology license, Claudia moved to Seattle and attended the Gene Juarez Advanced Color Academy. In 2007 she relocated to Yokohama, Japan where she quickly established her business while living abroad and learned many advanced techniques throughout Asia. Claudia returned to Monterey, California in 2010 and expanded her color and hair design expertise at Oya hair salon while working with new color lines and learning the latest trends from the top artists in the business. In 2012 she moved to New York City where she trained at Arrojo, one of the top salons in the United States. Returning to the San Diego area in 2014, Claudia opened AVA hair studio, bringing our area all the expertise and training she has mastered from around the world.
