Professional Development


Benjamin Manista

Benjamin Manista's passion for styling started long before he ever picked up a pair of scissors. As a young child, Benjamin would often pretend he was a stylist, creating beautiful works of art in his mind. A talented painter, Benjamin's artistic methodology has harmonized with his stylistic vision, creating the accomplished Master Designer he is today. Benjamin's technique is a confluence of following his gut and paying keen attention to the details of the person in his chair, for he finds his ultimate inspiration in the individuality of his clients. He is a firm believer that everything from skin tone to eye color and personality should be observed before crafting that perfect look; and Benjamin strives to ensure that his work is a true and beautiful reflection of his clients. He has a love of pairing natural hair coloring techniques with bold hair-cutting statements, and his self-expressed style is edgy, confident, modern, and passionate. Trained in the Graham Webb cutting system, Benjamin has disciplined himself in precision cutting and sectioning over his eight years as a professional hairdresser. Part of his accomplishments include being on the Sebastian Urban Design team for four years. Benjamin makes his home at our Eton location.
