Lerer is spontaneous and independent who left home from Taiwan at age 14 to pursue in arts and fashion on her own. Moving to Chicago then Dallas Texas, and now in Southern California. She never stops chasing her dreams and meeting her goals in life. Growing up with her father being a professional photographer, mom and aunt in fashion and makeup industry, arts come naturally to her. She graduated from Paul Mitchell 2012 and trained in Goldwell, Aquage, and LivingProof. She first fell in love with Aveda products and now finds it’s her home. Makeup is her soul, faces are like canvases and she sees beauty in everyone. She fell in love with hair doing balayage and ombré. Giving layer cuts is you’re not ready don’t tell her to do big hair because she will! Oh and did I tell you she loves animals? Ask her about her pet Diamond she will melt!
My love of hair started in grade school, trying new things with my own hair and eventually convincing others to let me do theirs. My passion began with color, specifically highlighting, being a blonde myself. After five years in the field I’ve found cutting to be a specialty of mine. I trained at the Aveda Institute Los Angeles and fell in love with their product as well as their mission statement. I grew up with a very holistic and nature loving upbringing so to be apart of Aveda and contribute in giving back to the parts of the world which Aveda helps thrive is very important to me. However, the training at Vidal Sassoon and Tony and Guy are helping to shape me as a stylist as well. Traveling is one of the greatest influences on my life so far, and I’ve found there’s much to learn about many things, hair included from people out of your own country and comfort zone. Being a stylist you never stop learning and I intend to seek out the betterment of my education through photo shoots and endless classes both in the country and abroad.
What can I say, other than this impressive artist is a Paul Mitchell graduate. She’s a happy human! Bokaos Aveda is super exited she’s joined us as a Junior Stylist. We could not be luckier to have her.
Tatiana has been doing hair since she was 17 years old. Her god mom inspired and pushed her to go to beauty school. She loves to do anything and everything that has to do with make up and hair, and is always up for a new challenge. Her strongest skill is make up, because with make up, anything is possible. It’s like painting a picture for the first time. We always need color because color makes everything come to life. When choosing this career she did know what to expect, but when you truly do what you love, you never work a day in your life.
