My goal is to see my dreams become reality. Most of the images you will see on my website started as a day dream. After hours of detailing these dreams, I would either make the clothes or search for them at thrift stores. With the help of my friends and coworkers, we played “dress up.” I would do their hair and makeup, and with the help of photographers or my own camera skills, we created my fashion and fantasy portfolio. I have spent years doing weddings and professional photo shoots, as well runway and winning competitions.
My passion is teaching people the skills I have learned and the skills I have taught myself. With a little patience, practice, and the right products, I believe anyone can create their own dream image of themselves, and I am happy to help. Come see me at Salon Muse — we’ll work together to create your ultimate look and I can teach you how to recreate it at home.

Born in Mount Sinai hospital in the Big Apple on October 10, 1988, Abraham Tosado has always had quite the artistic eye. His father Abraham, reigning from Caguas, Puerto Rico, was a self-taught artist, who immediately saw the potential his son had for the arts. His mother Ruth, from the Bronx, New York, also noticed his talent and would constantly buy him colored pencils, crayons, and artist books to keep him intact with his creative state of mind.
At the age of 10, Abraham had his first piece of art shown in Winter Park’s Sidewalk Art Festival, and he placed first with a piece named Outrageous Hair. With a consistent passion for art and hair alike, Abraham’s art grew into a city/glamour street vibe.
In high school, Abraham was really trying to figure out what his future intended. With only three classes his senior year, Abraham decided to enroll in cosmetology at Westside Tech. Realizing his passion for hair, Abraham graduated Winter Park High School and went in head first to finish his cosmetology degree.
Since then, Abraham has worked in all fields of the beauty industry, working on hair and makeup for the Premier Hair Show and working management in Sally Beauty Supply, which helped him truly understand the ins and out of beauty products and their functions for different types of hair and skin. Being a MAC makeup artist has also helped him understand different cosmetic techniques.
Abraham now works at Salon Muse as one of our top stylists and makeup artists. He is extremely knowledgeable in new techniques like color melting, shadow rooting, balayage, and ombre. He loves to beat those faces and creates a new take on any glamour cosmetic technique. He is still very lively as a local Orlando artist, and you can catch his work in the heart of downtown on occasion. He is a true artist in every shape and form. Very sweet and understanding, Abraham will take great care of your lovely locks! He also loves long walks on the beach and dinner by candlelight, if you’re interested in making his week!

She has trained with a top European barber and has a 50% male clientele.

She has also been to extensive advanced coloring classes and trained with many color lines, including Schwarzkopf and Wella. Many of her clients have been with her from her first years at Bangz.
Hairstyling is Laura’s passion, and she is experienced in any style, from avant-garde bobs to very long hair and anything in between. She has also had training working with naturally curly hair, using cutting techniques that sculpt the hair according to the natural curl pattern.
Listening to her clients’ desires is of utmost importance to her. While maintaining professionalism, Laura makes a point of getting to know her clients on a friend-to-friend basis, and since she became a hairstylist to help people feel good about themselves, she makes sure her clients are confident with their new looks.
In her free time, Laura reads, draws, makes jewelry, and dabbles in anything artistic. She also collects and sells antiques and rides and shows her two horses.
