ERIC TORRES

CO-OWNER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Eric Torres has 3 decades of experience with hair. Vidal Sassoon trained, he has worked with Cristophe and Umberto in Beverly Hills, the Bungalow Salon in West Hollywood. In 2013, Eric ventured out on his own to open this gorgeous salon in the historic Frank Gehry Edgemar Building.

"Hair color evolves," Eric says. "It reflects the life you're living, where you travel, what you eat… and to keep up with the pace of your life, I add dimension and texture to enhance what is naturally occurring."

SARA HALLAJIAN @sara_bombshell

CO-OWNER & STYLIST / SALON EDUCATOR

As a native to the coast of Southern California, Sara finds that her stylistic moods are influenced by mild seasons, blonde hair, and natural beachy waves. Even from a young age, Sara was intrigued by cosmetology and so she began her career at Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy in 2011. While working for Toni & Guy in Newport Beach, she developed her master cutting and styling techniques.

Her passion for hair inspired her to move to a more creative environment like bombshell where she could express herself and work more freely. To create the “California blonde” look, Sara has attended L'Oreal Professional Balayage certification classes in Newport Beach and New York City.

She has also taken the American Wave Certification & Advanced Razor Cutting classes with the Arrojo Team.

Sara is attentive, caring, and very technical with her skills. Her hope is that all of her clients leave with a smile on their face.

BRIDGET LOPEZ @bridgetlopez_bombshell

PREMIERE PLUS STYLIST/SALON EDUCATOR

Originally from the South Bay, Bridget has worked in the LA area since 2008 as a freelance stylist for fast-paced fashion shows, photoshoots, bridal magazines, and Bravo TV network. From a young age, her mother inspired her to choose this path; one where she recognizes that beauty is an influential part of a culture to which we all belong. She began her career at Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy where she specialized in cutting and styling, but continued to expand her education with specialized training in micro-bead & tape-in hair extensions as well as Keratin and Olaplex treatments. Bridget considers herself an artist as she creates shapes with her technical skills and paints hair with shades and tones of color.

She came to bombshell to be in an environment where her talent for hair design can flourish and grow; where she can explore her creativity, ambition and have all of her clients leave feeling effortlessly beautiful.
