My name is Brittany Silla and I am a free lance hair stylist. I have been in the industry for almost 7 years, and experienced working in another salon downtown Toronto prior to where I am at now.
Growing up, I did competitive Irish Dancing for 12 years. For competitions, our makeup had to be very intense and theatrical along with our hair. This is when I started to be immersed in the beauty industry.
Originally, my plan was to go to University and become a lawyer. History and English were my two best subjects in school and I loved all of the characteristics that a law profession had to offer. However, hair had always been my true passion.
I decided to pursure a career in hair styling while I was in high school. Despite what others said, I knew I could be successful and make something of myself as a hair stylist. I have worked for Marilyn Denis on her television show doing hair makeovers, as well as worked for numerous seasons backstage at Toronto Fashion Week.
Always follow your dreams no matter what. Life is short, so seize the day and work hard to be the best at what you do.
