Juan Miguel Medialdea Martinez (Juanmy Medialdea), was born in Guadix, Granada in 1977. An innate passion for crafts and creativity led him to start studying hairdressing at the early age of thirteen years old. Two years later, at only fifteen, he styled his first bride and opened his first salon. Since then, his passion for the profession has only grown and over the years, Juan Miguel has become the go-to stylist for brides in the province of Granada.
Juan Miguel Medialdea Peluqueros has seen many changes over the years. From the beginning Juan Miguel’s mother has been a vital presence. Not only did she support him and help him to grow the business, but she later became a project partner, and after another partner joined them, the growth was unstoppable. Today the salon is located in the heart of Guadix and boasts more than 120 square metres with a team of six stylists. The firm´s success is due to its ability to constantly evolve; as well as developing and researching new styles, techniques and products.
Currently, Juan Miguel is starting to make a name for himself in the training sector by taking his first steps in a collaboration with Schwarzkopf Professional.
His great passion is creative hairdressing and bridal styles. These are the two major focus points in which he has specialised and consolidated his reputation and professional standing. His bridal creations have been featured in such highly regarded publications as Rosa Clara.
Juan Miguel is the first hairdresser in history to win five Picasso Awards with two collections in a single night (2019). This incredible achievement marks a milestone in a meteoric career.
