Ted Cortese became a hair stylist because he thought all people in the industry worked half a week and spent the rest of their time on boat docks. The two stylists he met, when he was age 12 and 15, did just that. At 19 Ted entered hair school and surprised himself and everyone around him. He was a gifted prodigy.
Within 3 months after graduation, Ted won first place in Memphis, then Tennessee, and then the nation for hair cutting. Ted then represented the USA in Paris France and placed 9th in the world. At the young age of 21 he began to put his focus on natural hair coloring. Today, women come to Ted from 17 states, France and England, for the finest, most natural beautiful haircolor to be found anywhere. At diVa it's all about you.
