Alfonso Anorga, President of Johnny B. men’s hair care, the brand that changed the industry around the world.  While growing up in Los Angeles he discovered at a young age that his lifelong passion was hair color. His first-hand experience in the industry has taken him from being a cosmetologist by the age of 18 to selling over a million tubes of color as a distributor to now a manufacturer of his own color brand; ELECTRA.  

He has taught over 600 color classes since 1994, to beauty schools, salons and to salespeople. You can't miss Anorga’s unique method of breaking down hair color fundamentals to a simple yet effective learning style. He tells you what no one else can and will share insider experiences of the development in bringing a color line to market in today’s world. 

No one else can share so much knowledge over such a varied platform quite like Anorga can. His quirky personality and lively approach to education, along with his salon-friendly-yet-edgy content, leaves fellow professionals refreshed and inspired by his passion for all things of our industry.
