Meet the Owner

Rodney Robledo began a career in hair and makeup artistry in 2001 when he was signed with a Fashion Agency in Miami, Florida. Prior to this opportunity, Rodney had established himself as a successful photographer for editorial models. With his background and ongoing work in fashion, Rodney is always at the cutting edge of the trends and techniques shaping the industry.

With Robledo Studio, Rodney sought to create a hair-spa concept that would be more intimate and therapeutic than the typical high-end local hair salon. Upon first stepping into his studio, scents of lemongrass and peaceful music welcome your senses. The atmosphere is much different than the usual loud and busy environment of most salons. At Robledo Studio, clients are able to relax and leave their worries behind while Rodney works his magic.

Additionally, he offers makeup classes and application services, making Robledo Studio a perfect all-inclusive choice for bridal beauty services and special events.
