CESAR RAMIREZ BIO Born in Newark, New Jersey to Puerto Rican parents, Cesar grew up amidst hairspray and rollers in his family’s small hair salon. There, he spent his time staring at posters of Grace Jone’s haircuts and helping around, taking in the world of beauty. Even at home, he immersed himself in beauty and fashion. As a teenager, Cesar could be found straightening his mother’s hair and making over his friends after school. An artistic maverick, Cesar was determined to carve a space for himself within the beauty and fashion world early on. He first set his eyes on the fashion industry, hoping to study at FIT. With the meticulousness and cerebral flair evinced today in his creations, Cesar decided to first spend some time working as a hairstylist to put himself through fashion school. Chance, then, presented him with what would become his true medium of self-expression when he decided to study cosmetology and work at a salon. Once he immersed himself fully in hair design, his passion exploded. With his innate talent, Cesar focused on developing his technique to become a true artist of the craft. He hasn’t stopped growing and refining his expertise since. In his 13 years in the industry, Cesar has trained with top stylists, including Michelle Caruso, Ruth Roche, Joe Blackwell, Orlando Pita, Julien d’Ys and Guido Palau. His career took off after the Fall of 2001. The tragic events of September 11, fueled Cesar’s drive and he ventured into the city determined to grow his expertise. He began training at Dop Dop salon and building his portfolio. After landing his very first celebrity, the rest followed, filling Cesar’s book with accomplished and well-known figures.
Constantly looking for inspiration and to inspire, Cesar is well known today for his work on artists like Beyonce, the Jonas brothers, Lala Anthony, Aubrey O’Day, and Sara Ramirez. He has worked with brands such as Target, Sean John, Jones NY, Davines, INC, T3 Micro, and L’Oreal. Cesar is also recognized for the impeccable vision he brings to New York’s runways, where he has worked with fashion forward designers like Victor de Sousa, Katie Gallagher, Carlos Campos, and Jad Ghandour. He has been recognized by the industry’s media outlets, where he has earned Best Hair for his work on Fashion Week on several seasons. Whether for print or the runway, Cesar will always create a meticulous, clean and polished look that merges structures, sexiness and artistic allure.
