Winter Springs Salon Suite Owner
Vanessa’s Road to Becoming a Hair Stylist
Torres was inspired to become a hairstylist from an early age. As a matter of fact, she grew up doing everyone’s hair and makeup at sleepovers. By the time she entered 6th grade, she was cutting her hair. After graduating high school, Torres decided to pursue cosmetology after receiving a scholarship. Torres specializes in coloring and makeovers. She is known as “the makeover girl” after performing a makeover on TLC’s The Makeover Story.
Vanessa is from El Paso, Texas. She moved to Florida when she turned 20. Torres applied to Disney and had the chance to work with boy bands like *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys. After leaving Disney, Torres worked at the Wyndham. One day, she saw a phonebook ad for Amici Salon & Spa. She applied and was hired on the spot.
Torres contributes her success to providing thorough consultations, honesty, and her love and passion for her work. She’s never been satisfied with being mediocre.
Vanessa now holds over 20 years of experience as a hairstylist.
Life Outside of the Salon
When Vanessa takes a break from the chair, she loves going to theme parks and traveling. In her travels, she’s served on mission trips to India, Haiti, and Mexico. She finds great joy in creating experiences with her daughter.
