RICKY GARCIA | Future Stylist | @RickyGarciaJr
Born in Puerto Rico and raised in NYC, Ricky began his career with Crate & Barrel at the 59th & Madison flagship. He was a key player in building the CB2 brand through openings in New York, Chicago, Toronto and Miami, where the company moved him. However, after feeling the artistic calling of fashion and beauty, he made the decision to attend beauty school and subsequently worked in a Miami based salon for another 5 years.
Returning to his NYC roots, Ricky feels that he has found his professional home in SoHo with Sam Brocato Salon. He is inspired and motivated to be in an environment filled with driven, passionate, creative, smart and kind individuals, who want to influence and inspire others. He’s a lover of all of the creative spirits that NYC has to offer including beauty, fashion, theater and music.
Armed with contagious enthusiasm, kindness and a penchant for cutting and exemplary blow out skills, Ricky is soon to become a client favorite. He’s proudest of his ability to bring to life his client’s vision of themselves. He can style all day, every day and is passionate about creating anything with his hands.
His style icons range from Audrey Hepburn, Cher, Princess Diana and Diana Ross to Prince, James Dean, George Michael and Michael Jackson. With a wide range of inspiration and experience, Ricky feels that the best part of his job is being creative and impactful to someone else’s image.
