Tina Le Noble is a multi-talented graduate of ARROJO Cosmetology School and Level 1 Stylist at ARROJO Studio. A crossover from the fashion industry, Tina joined the September 2010 class to add a new set of skills to her beauty tool kit. Tina’s journey from fashion stylist to hair stylist is exactly what keeps us inspired to work hard and dream big! Read on for Tina’s story in her own words…
“I moved to Manhattan in 2002 to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology and earned a degree in Fashion Design and Business Management. After getting my degree, I worked in runway design for Baby Phat with Kimora Simmons and as a personal assistant, technical designer and vintage clothing sourcing coordinator for Betsey Johnson.
After collaborating with editorial hair stylists and makeup artists, I decided to embark on a new career path. I enrolled at ARROJO Cosmetology School in September 2010 because it was the best school that I came across in the field.
After graduation, I began my apprenticeship at ARROJO Studio. Aside from participating in ARROJO Underground with a solo presentation (as an apprentice!), I was also asked by Nick Arrojo to work as an ARROJO fashion stylist at events like the International Beauty Show and ARROJO Expo. I’ve also collaborated on Internet tutorials with NARS Cosmetics and been fortunate enough to work with several independent designers on photo shoots and look books.
I’m inspired by everything from music to fashion to art and vintage finds at the flea market. At ARROJO, I get to work with and around the most creative and inspiring stylists, and make people feel confident and beautiful. What’s not to love??”
We also want to congratulate Tina, who was named as ARROJO’s Lead Stylist for the Lauren Moffatt fashion show during this year’s New York Fashion Week!
