Yara de la Torre is a 29-year-old hairstylist who has been in the beauty industry since the age of 17. Beginning as an assistant, she spent seven years learning and growing as a stylist, establishing herself before opening her own salon, Lashes & Curls Studio, in July 2018 in Key Largo, Florida.
She’s a salon owner, avid colorist, balayage specialist and an educator with the Sunlights Balayage Artisan Team, and most recently an ambassador and educator with DesignME Hair.
de la Torre discovered her niche with color in 2017 when she dove deep into balayage and used that as a fuel for her career and growth. But on April 28th, 2019, everything changed. She fell two stories and broke her back, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down. After five months of rest and recovery, de la Torre made her way back into the salon to pick up where she left off.
She focuses on balayage, team leadership, education and giving back to the hair community that supported her through all her journey. Easy-to-understand education, hair tips, blonding and balayage, and radical resilience with positivity is always de la Torre’s main focus.
