Who We Are
Welcome to the National Latino Cosmetology Association. Our association is dedicated to providing valuable resources and services to Latino beauty industry professionals and businesses. We look forward to helping every member enhance their professional knowledge, business growth, and career focus in the beauty industry.
“The modern Latina is ‘ambicultural’ with the ability to seamlessly transcend between English and Spanish-language – two cultures – giving her a unique position in our consumer landscape,” said Julie Zepeda, exective director of National Latino Cosmetology Association, “Latinas are a key driver of economic influence, giving marketers an opportunity to establish new and loyal consumer relationships by acknowledging the needs and following the unique behavior trends of Hispanic women. More than ever, the lines between what is strictly American and what is strictly Latino are being blurred.So in the long-term, companies will need to appeal to consumers across a new U.S. Latino identity, which reflects a growing number of English-speaking, culturally connected Hispanics.”
