About Nick Arrojo
Born in Manchester, England, Nick’s career began as a Vidal Sassoon apprentice. He won the prestigious Young Hairdresser of the Year Award and at 21 became Vidal’s youngest Assistant Creative Director. After 20 years in the industry, including stints as Creative Seminar leader for Wella International and Director of Education for Bumble and Bumble, New York, he opened ARROJO studio in Manhattan’s SoHo district in 2001. In 2002 Nick became the hairdressing host for “What Not to Wear” and formed ARROJO education in 2003 and ARROJO product in 2007. Both companies enjoy great success and cement Nick’s position as an independent pioneer, revered by clients and professionals alike. In 2007 Nick also signs his ﬁrst book contract with St. Martins Press. The book, titled Great Hair and released in October 2008, is a hairstyling handbook providing every woman with secrets for looking fabulous and feeling beautiful. In 2008, Nick’s forward momentum also drives a jaw-dropping 9000 sq. ft. expansion to the existing 4000 sq. foot studio. Completed in Spring 2008, it includes more salon space, ARROJO academy, ARROJO cosmetology school, and the ARROJO product concept store. Nick is named Salon Entrepreneur of the Year from Global Salon Business Awards. Nick’s work has graced the fashion magazines of the world, he’s a regular stylist at New York fashion shows, and a regular guest for hair-related news stories on the ABC and NBC TV networks. An acclaimed stylist, educator, and leading light in the business, Nick’s ground-breaking approach to hairstyling––in particular his signature razor-cutting technique––is recognized worldwide. With a synergistic vision to make a positive contribution at the grass roots of hairdressing, in 2011 Nick formed a new alliance with Goldwell.
