Texas Dela Rosa was born and raised in West Texas. From early on he demonstrated a creative fashion sense. At times, he actually started a few trends by dressing in his own unique style - probably more to the ire of the more conservative parents. Always being one step ahead in fashion, hair cuts, hair color, etc., he has a natural talent for what looks good on others and how to help people with their appearance and style. Since arriving in Austin, he has acquired a circle of friends and acquaintances who seek out his advice for make-up and hairstyling. His motto is: "It's imperative to feel good in your own skin." Doing make-up and making people feel great about their looks is his passion. (Check out his photo gallery)
