Celebrity colorist Anival Morales has combined his love of art, extensive travel , and teachings from a world famous mentor to establish himself as a successful, sought-after colorist. Anival's career truly began at a very young age when his mother began working for world-renowned British artist David Hockney. With Hockney's guidance, Anival used his love of art as a catalyst to pursue his dream of becoming a colorist. "David has been an amazing influence on my life," says Anival. "Not only did he inspire me to follow my goals, but he taught me to see the world in amazing splashes of color and not be afraid to stray outside of the lines."
Anival used his advice to launch his career and continue to live by this mantra to further propel his success in the industry. A lifelong world traveler who settled in Los Angeles at the age of 2 from Guatemala, Anival began his career with Sally Hershberger at John Frieda, under the brilliant tutelage of Lorri Goddard. His specialty is Balayage, where he creates very natural sun kissed highlights, he rarely uses foils but instead prefers to hand paint his strokes with the flow of the hair. This intricate technique works equally well for blondes, brunette, and redheads, and conjours the carefree image of beachy, sunkissed hair.
A true expert in his field, Anival believes that beautiful hair is truly a work of art.
