Artistic Director + Salon Manager
Luis Payne takes inspiration from the many facets of nature; be it brightly colored birds, the destructive dance of fire, or the powerful serenity of the sunset, to create art in the medium of hair. Originally from Central California, Luis Payne heard his calling for hair in the dawn of the millenia. After several years behind the chair he relocated to Los Angeles and found the city to be a perfect arena for creative expression. There he discovered Hairroin Salon in Hollywood- the ideal environment to encourage his growth as a Hair Artist. Through dedication & passion he decided to return to school in 2008 to acquire his barbering credentials expanding his knowledge in male grooming.
As an active freelance artist Payne's talents are often sought out for photo shoots, fashion shows, TV, and Digital press. Payne continues to contribute to the beauty industry as member of the prestigious Design Team for Sebastian Professional. With Sebastian Payne has mentored and educated countless stylists and inspired thousands nationwide with his talent for coloring, cutting, and styling. Luis Payne has truly found his calling in New York as the Artistic Director for Hairroin Salon. There he continues to develop his skills, inspire others, and delivers beautiful hair styles to clients each day.
