Joel Warren

The Master Colorist

Joel Warren is one of the world’s most recognized colorists, but he started out as an aspiring chef. Inspired by his girlfriend, a beautician, Joel decided to try his hand at beauty school. In his early twenties, he took a job at a Manhattan salon and was fascinated by the process of mixing formulas. He found that the rewarding feeling of creating beautiful hair color was similar to coming up with the perfect recipe.

As renowned colorist Louis Licari’s first male assistant, Joel learned from the very best. He became widely known for his ability to perfectly personalize every client’s tint using superior methods. Modern in his outlook, he is adamant about constantly expanding his horizons, keeping up with the latest hair trends and mastering the skills for creating them. What sets him apart is his detailed eye for contrast, shadow and depth.
