Judge, Owner @ Simply Faded Barber Spa
My name is Steve Trujillo, that is also what I go by in the barbering industry. I am originally from Puerto Rico but I was born & raised in the east side of Orlando Florida, where I went to school & also got licensed at the age of 16. I didn’t like going to the barbershop because I didn’t like how they cut my hair, which drove me to practice on myself. Slowly I went from practicing on my own hair to cutting family & friends hair; and just like that my passion for the art of barbering grew. I fell in love with it in a short amount of time and eventually started working at a barbershop & haven’t looked back ever since. I worked at a couple of shops throughout the years where I grew my clientele, before I was fortunate enough to start my own business: Simply Faded Barber Spa. Now at the age of 24, I’ve got 8 years’ of experience in men’s hair, I’m more less a traditional barber with an urban touch. I focus on shear cutting, hot towel shaves, traditional haircuts and even all the new trendy designs. I now travel the United States Networking, teaching classes, hosting events, judging, showcasing, or just simply attending hair shows or anything that has to do with hair and further educating myself. I’ve worked with some of the top educators in the industry, have been featured on a magazine, app & media. I have numerous amount of trophies from competitions that I have either won or participated in. Everyday I continue to push myself to always learn something new. I now focus on my business & will continue to grow as an entrepreneur and open more locations.
