Martin Pena

Cut and Style Specialist



Inspired by his mother, a fellow hairdresser and “the most fashionable and fun person I’ve ever met,” Martin Pena grew up two hours south of Dallas and moved to Big D at 17 to pursue his craft. First stop? Toni & Guy, where he worked for 18 years, becoming an artistic director and advanced teacher. “I loved every minute of it,” he says of the time spent helping fellow stylists hone their skills.


Since garnering recognition at Toni & Guy, Martin has been voted Best Hairdresser by allure on three separate occasions. Today, he brings more than 30 years of experience to the TRU team, and still he’s known as a thoughtful professional who strives to make every client feel important. When not doing just that, you’ll find him going for a run, gardening, dining with friends, and hanging out with his dog Cocoa.


“When you look good, you feel good. I’m sure someone else said that, but it’s true.”
