Angelique Marcella Stanford was raised in Agoura Hills, California, and then lived in Los Angeles. She is an experienced stylist and colorist who is passionate about total transformations.

Angelique attended cosmetology school and was named Stylist of the Year at Butterfly Loft. She has completed the Wella Professionals’ famous Master of Color Expert program.

At the beginning of her career, Angelique was very shy. She had a mentor who was extremely helpful in pulling her out of her shell and encouraging her. As a result, Angelique now takes pride in being a mentor to stylists new to the industry. She encourages them and gives them confidence and continues to promote and mentor them after their careers are underway.

As testament to her passion and spirit, Angelique learned to swim at age 27 when she wanted to complete a triathlon. Over the course of a few months, she learned to swim successfully and did, in fact, complete a triathlon in Carpinteria, California. Angelique reflects on this experience often and uses it to motivate herself anytime she is feeling discouraged or challenged.

In addition to her career as a stylist and mentor, Angelique enjoys ceramic sculpture and jewelry making. She has travelled extensively; her favorite destination is Barcelona, where she fell in love with the food, culture, art and architecture.
