OUR FOUNDER

Noé Rodriguez | Founder/CEFO

 

Since 2008, Noé Rodriguez, founder, and CEFO has been at the helm of the beauty and grooming industry, channeling his inspiration from his world travels into his salon.

 

Exposed at a young age to the beauty industry as the nephew of a well-known Hair Artist, Noé's initial intent was to become a pilot, but life had something different in mind. Instead, Noé followed in his uncle's footsteps, becoming a licensed cosmetologist at the age of 19 years old.

 

Thereafter, Noé received instruction at The Redken Exchange in NYC and successfully completed certifications through the L'Oréal Professionel SOHO Academy in NYC and Laguna Beach, California.

Entrusted by many for his vision and approach to creating the most beautiful hair, Noé attributes his success to discipline, passion, perseverance, and continuing education–qualities that are now imbued to his students.

ABOUT US

Only when knowledge, passion, and perseverance are in sync will skill translate onto canvas [hair] beautifully.

TPCA’s instructors are licensed by the state of Texas and were meticulously selected by TPCA for their artistic and teaching attributes, and vision to run the clinic according to professional salon, spa, and barbershop standards, as they too are successful professionals who continue to work in their field, as time permits.

These attributes and the vision that the instructors possess afford TPCA the ability to meet its mission.

Under the direction of TPCA’s founder, and CEFO, Noé Rodriguez, students are well on their way in receiving a contemporary, student-centered education in the exciting and ever-changing beauty industry, as he is a significant proponent of continuing education and is at the helm of these industries.

The sky is the limit in this industry. If you are committed to learning, no one can stop you.
