For over two decades, Claudio Lazo has channeled his passion and creativity into transforming the tresses of notables in fashion and entertainment — making him one of the most sought after hairstylists in the business.

Claudio’s exacting technique was honed under the watchful eye of some of the industry’s greatest hair innovators, including the Austrian hair genius, Walter Zipuch, and Geri Cusenza, the fearless trailblazer behind the prestigious Cassandra 2000 Salon and creator of Sebastian’s famous look and style. He has worked as an editorial hairstylist for fashion’s elite, including Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Azzedine Alaia; created looks for rock legends from Peter Frampton to Pat Benatar; and traveled the world over as a member of the Sebastian International Design Team. In 2013, Claudio started the advanced academy, The Space, where he holds classes on styling and finishing for editorial and fashion work — from red carpet looks to the avant-garde.

Today, Claudio is known for his artistry and craftsmanship — particularly as it pertains to innovating with color and texture. He divides his time between styling for editorial, advertising, fashion and red carpet clientele; consulting for hair care leaders, including Wella Professional and Clairol, and running his salon in Los Angeles, where he also directs his legendary assistant program and The Space.

Claudio’s work has appeared on the pages of Elle, InStyle, Allure, Bazaar, C, Modern Salon, Beauty Launchpad and Esthetica, and has been seen on E!, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Oprah, among others.

When not wielding his scissors and comb, Claudio spends much of his time behind the camera shooting fashion — or hanging out with his favorite creation, his daughter, Camilla.
