About This Episode
Growing up between New York City and the Caribbean, Cesar Ramirez spent many days helping out at his family’s hair salon and blowing out his mom’s hair. Despite the hours he spent at the salon, Cesar never expected it to lead to a career in the hair industry. That all changed when Cesar entered high school and decided to try his luck at becoming a hair stylist.

While working at a salon in downtown New York and building his portfolio on the side, Cesar slowly began to grow his clientele. His career had a life-changing moment when one of his regular customers, who is a publicist, asked him to do a photo shoot for one of her new clients, Cassie, and the rest was history. Now 15 years in the industry, Cesar’s looks have been featured in magazines including Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ, runways for designers like Victor de Sousa and Narciso Rodriguez during New York Fashion Week, and several TV shows such as “Celebrity Apprentice” and “La La’s Full Court Life.” Hear Cesar’s story to becoming a successful celebrity hair stylist in the video above.
