Há uns meses tive oportunidade de conhecer o Hairstylist Jorge João numa apresentação da Redken
Luso descendente, a viver no Canadá, é hoje uma dos maiores Redken Artists. 
Partilhou com um simpático grupo a sua história e experiência, a paixão pelo mundo da estética e dos cabelos e deixou, ainda, alguns conselhos preciosos!
Mais tarde, fiz-lhe uma entrevista que podem ler agora. Não a traduzi para que a possa ler de igual forma e para que não se perca a essência das suas palavras!

Thank you, Jorge João!
