Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco Mexico, Araceli Ibarra is an internationally known hair stylist with current clients in the US, Canada and Mexico. Her expertise in color and styling as well as her own system for applying 100% natural human hair make Araceli a sought after artist. After completing her education in Mount Vernon and Everett Washington Araceli returned to Mexico and purchased an existing salon in Guadalajara in 1998. The salon had previously specialized in hair extensions, something she was not familiar with. Intrigued, Araceli set out to research and get certified in the many methods of bonding and attaching hair. Frustrated by the drawbacks of some of those methods, Araceli developed her own method that uses an all natural attachment system that does not harm your own hair while firmly and seamlessly holding your new hair in place. No more tangled weaves or hair damaged by harsh chemicals or heat! Only all natural hair with the length and fullness that can be styled the way you have always dreamed possible.
Motivated by the transformations she witnessed as women became more confident in their professional and personal lives Araceli moved back to Washington State, opening her salon in 2002. As word started to spread about her work Araceli started to gain new clients in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Whatcom and Skagit counties. People as far away as Canada, Chelan and Spokane started to travel to her salon. Today, Araceli is flown in regularly by clients as far away as New York, San Francisco and Mexico. Dedicated to her craft, Araceli has decided to focus exclusively on extensions, using her talents to create an all natural beautiful and long lasting style that is uniquely yours.
