Ruben was born in Peru. He arrived in Philadelphia at the age of 7, and at age 13 after moving to Florida, he began cutting his own hair because there were no barbershops close by where he lived. Ruben had always enjoyed drawing from a very young age, so in addition to simply cutting hair, he learned the art of hair tattoos. This has enabled him to expand into hair portraits and take his hair styling art in many different directions. Ruben says, “Learning as an artist has been a great experience for me, but an even greater experience has been sharing my knowledge with others.”
