In 2009, Si began her career in the beauty world as a manicurist. Being new in the salon world at the age of 19, she was blown away when she was exposed to the daily activities of a full service salon. With haircutting, hairstyling, make up, and creative color, Si was at awe of how the stylists were able to freely express their creativity. She loved seeing the passion and attention to detail it took to create a look at the end. And she loved seeing the relationships being built between the stylists and their clients. Si knew right away that she wanted to be a woman of all trades and not be limited to just one skill set.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A STYLIST?
I attended Vici Beauty School in Glendale, WI and graduated in 2010. Since then, I’ve grown a deep love for hair color, makeup, and nail art.
WHY DID YOU WANT TO BECOME A STYLIST?
I’ve always expressed who I am through my hair, nails, and make up. Being able to help others express themselves through what I create, while also being able to make them feel beautiful, is what I live for as a stylist!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HAIR DO OF ALL TIME?
Long, flowy, effortless wavy hair. Anything with fun texture that makes you look like you woke up with good looking hair. 🙂
WHO IS YOUR CELEBRITY HAIR ICON?
One of them would have to be Rihanna. Only she can make something look edgy yet so polished at the same time.
She is the most thorough and passionate stylist I have ever been to. What I really love about her is that she is always educating herself on the newest trends, and is not afraid of guiding me on my style. She loves being a stylist and helping people look their best, and it shows! She even did my hair for my wedding, and it was how I always imagined it.
As for the salon, it is adorable! You feel like you are in a high end salon in LA, without paying the LA price. All of the stylists are so fun and friendly, you really feel like part of a family. I drive from over an hour away to get my hair done, and it is totally worth it!
