You could say Bekah comes from a long lineage of hairstylists. Her first recognition of this fact was her aunt who is a stylist and Bekah greatly admires for her creativity. But, her grandpa and great-grandpa were barbers in Mexico too!
Small Town Dreams
Bekah group up in a small town with a big Hispanic family. In her family, you work hard and expect everyone to do the same. She always wanted to be a hairstylist but wasn’t sure how her family would react. In some eyes, being a stylist might be considered not to be a “real” profession.
Pitching Hair to the Family
Bekah studied to be a medical examiner for two years. Two years too many. It was time to follow her dream. Nervous, she told her family hair was her future, and she wanted to move on from her home town of Modesto. Thankfully, most of the family was supportive and sent her on her way. Her mom, and biggest fan, often brags about her daughter out in Vegas with the killer cuts.
Those Killer Cuts
Bekah is known around the salon for skills with cutting. If there is a precision bob, a long layered cut, or a particularly picky pixie, you can consult with Bekah. While some stylists shy away from cuts, she loves the challenge.
What is it About Hair Cuts?
Instant gratification. Bekah said, “In an hour with a simple haircut, you can see a transformation and the client’s confidence build. It’s so fun and never gets old.” She added true happiness is haircuts and root touchups, all day, every day.
The Queen of Undercuts
Bekah does something that not a lot of other people at our salon do: incredible intricate and totally badass undercuts. Not only are the cuts badass, but you kind of have to be a badass to get one. We still get excited every time she gets her clippers out for one of these masterpieces.
Our Bb. NE
As a Bumble and bumble dedicated salon, we are required to choose one person to be our Network Educator and brand evangelist. We chose Bekah. As our NE, she is required to visit Bumble in New York, take advanced classes, and bring back information to share with the rest of us. Educating others on how to do hair is a big part of who she is.
All About Family
Even though she moved on from Modesto, her family stays close to her heart. On days off, you can find Bekah relaxing on the couch with her family and husband, Gabe. They both are busy people with tricky schedules. They work hard and coordinate days off to plan quick trips to California with their dogs.
