I was always fascinated by the beauty and fashion industry. When I moved to Chicago from Mexico at 19 years old, I started assisting at a salon and after a few years I started beauty school. After finishing school, I started working full time at the salon. While working there I completed several cutting advanced programs like Llongeras and Mekka.
Nine Years ago I moved to Austin, Texas, opened my own salon, J Buccio Salon, and decided to start training to be an educator for Schwarzkopf Professional. After a few years, I was named guess artist for SKP and entered my first major hairstylist competition, the 2014 NAHA awards, where I was nominated for best men's collection. Soon after my NAHA nomination, I started doing some celebrity grooming. In 2016, I entered and won the BTC Big Shot Award in the men's category for North America. Now I keep creating yearly men's collections, entering contests, working on magazine editorials, and continuing my celebrity grooming and styling.
