Toni Garcia

Toni Garcia-Jackson remembers vividly the day she fell in love with hairdressing. She was just 13, having her own hair done in a trendy salon. As she sat in the chair, she watched with fascination as seasoned hair stylists worked magic on their clients. “There was a sense of freedom that I felt as I watched the hairstylists work. I was instantly attracted to the hair art they were creating, ever since that day I wanted to become a hair designer.” Now a freelance artist, she has been working her own hair magic for over 25 years. Toni specializes in innovative color placement, as well as precision cutting.

Toni worked as a top artist for L Óreal Professional Products Division/Mizani for 25 years. She is currently a top artist for the Wella Brand and the Product Club Team sharing her vast knowledge in advanced hair coloring techniques. She travels across the country and abroad, educating and training some of the country’s top stylists. Toni is an American Board Certified Hair Colorist. She has trained extensively at The Redken Exchange, Vidal Sassoon and the Wella Institute in advanced hair coloring, haircutting and styling. As a freelance artist, I love transforming people. I like having what I consider a blank canvas and then creating what I want.

Toni’s work has been featured in many magazines including Latina Magazine, Modern Salon, The Colorist and American Salon. Toni was the key make-up artist for New York Fashion Designer, Byron Lars’ Spring Collection video. She has styled hair for NY Fashion Week. Toni managed the tresses of Def Jam Recording Artist and grammy winner R&B singer Chrisette Michelle, Maybach Music Group R&B Singer, Teedra Moses and The CW News Correspondence Sharon Carpenter. Toni was also the exclusive hair and wig designer for the critically-acclaimed Off Broadway musical Winter Wonderettes.
