Beauty Works is located in the heart of Magnolia Park, a chain of one of a kind speciality boutiques. The perfect place for Beauty Works.
The studio was acquired by the current owner back in 1997, and over the past 24 years has transformed it from a conventional salon, to what it is now. A studio with an artsy and eclectic decor that entertains the eyes, yet it provides an inviting and comfortable atmosphere that makes both clients and stylists feel at home. Gloria is creative & you can see it throughout the studio.
We pride ourselves in providing very personal services that are customized to each client's needs!
Beauty Works often opens its doors to host workshops, as the owner believes in encouraging entrepreneurs.
Gloria grew up in Mexico. At the age of 25 she came to California, without having any friends or family here for support. With the barriers of not speaking the language and adjusting to a whole new lifestyle after three years she finally was able to enroll herself into beauty college in 1993. Finding her calling in the beauty industry she became licensed in 1995. With the challenges and risks that come with acquiring your own business, despite her short experience in the industry, she took a chance in 1997 and purchased her current studio, Beauty Works. With enthusiasm and excitement combined with the pressures of having quite the responsibility, she attended seminars in New York and constantly continued to educate herself. She believes in always continuing education to stay current with the always evolving industry. Ten years into her career she developed a dry cutting technique. Cutting on dry hair brings out the hidden potential in your hair that can not be achieved by cutting on wet hair. After many positive reviews it is now one of Gloria’s specialty services. Overall her passion and long hours of seven days a week for the first year brought her to build her extended and loyal clientele. Even now after 24 years she continues to enjoy everyday with the same love and passion she has had since the beginning.
