Blanca has been part of the VICI family for years, working first in Dispense at VICI Beauty School. She recalls the life-changing moment when she told owner Penny Rushing that she was quitting her job.

“I told her, you’re going to lose me as an employee, but gain a student,” she said, looking back on that moment. She was nervous to return to school, but faced her fears and quickly knew cosmetology was her calling in life.

Blanca excelled in school and was invited to rejoin the VICI family as a stylist upon graduation. She’s not only an outstanding stylist, she’s fun and goofy, loves to sing, and is obsessed with her eyelashes– ask her for tips on how she gets them to be so lush!

Blanca’s parents came to California from Mexico to start a family and give them all a chance for a better life. Blanca was born in Mexico, but raised in California and has many happy memories of her childhood there. She hopes to return one day to be with family and open her own salon with mimosas overlooking the beach.
