When did you begin in the hairdressing world?
Juanma: my relationship with hairdressing was a casual matter. I started 20 years ago now helping my partner, and I liked it so much that here I am still.
Jordi: it was a matter of family motivation. At 12 years of age I could see my sister working at her hairdressers in Figueres. After insisting and “sneaking in” to her hairdressers at weekends, she decided to give me a chance to work there, so I would know if I hated or love the profession.
So Teresa was my first teacher.
Who was your first reference?
Juanma: Alexandre de Paris was the first hairdressing icon that I had: it was the first time that I had been to a hairdressing show and I watched his team work live. I think it was the first time that I had seen a full auditorium in silence watching every movement they made. From that time on I have always wanted to do updos – it’s something I like and enjoy working on a lot.
