We had the good fortune of connecting with Jorge Serrano and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jorge, what are you inspired by?
I get inspired every day when I walk into Just One Eye and see the clothes, the art, and the beauty of the space. I am inspired by the salon I created; a discrete, and hidden sanctuary where my clients can enjoy peace while getting their services done. I get inspiration from my talented staff and working alongside them. I am most inspired by the drive to take my business to the next level and the goals I can achieve in my creative field.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Being a creative and artist, I love everything hair. I take care of every client sitting in my chair from color, highlighting, cutting and styling. I create the complete look from start to finish.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would start the day by taking them on a hike to the Hollywood sign to start our day. We would then drive over to Venice to have breakfast at Superba Food + Bread Venice. Followed by a bike ride through Venice beach all the way to Will Rogers beach. Take in the scenery and the amazing weather of LA.

After our bike ride I would take them to an amazing gallery to look at furniture and art at a place called Stahl + Band.

For lunch we would head over to Sycamore District in Hollywood and have lunch at Cafe Tartine. After lunch, we would stop in to Just One Eye to do some shopping. We would end the night with delicious dinner at Gigis.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I have been fortunate to have amazing mentors and support throughout my career. I would like to give a shoutout and appreciation to my long time friend Paola Russo, owner of Just One Eye, who has given me the opportunity to open my salon inside her beautifully curated space of art, fashion and beauty.
