Britt's Education and Crudentials:
Keeping up with the latest hair trends is key to being a well-rounded stylist.
I’ve had the privilege over the years to train at the Toni and Guy, Loreal, and Wella Academy. I have worked in Las Vegas, and Los Angeles, as a platform artist for Turbo Power, sharing my knowledge and skills with other stylists.
I have been a licensed cosmetologist for over fifteen years, and within those years, I went back to college and finished my degrees. I have a B.S. in English literature, education and research. I also have a Masters in Fine Arts in Writing. When I am not galivanting around and styling hair for brides, I am home with Charlie, writing and developing my upcoming novel series, The Pace of Nature, which charts the life of fifteen-year-old Lilly Difeo, a mixed-up girl whose parents drop and abandon her at a boot-camp boarding school, where she is forced to face her personal demons in order to come back home.
My name is Britt and I’ve had the pleasure of styling hair for brides for over fifteen years! I live in Peekskill, NY with my fiancé, Mike and our dog, Charlie. Although, I have an at-home salon station, which is where I hold most bridal hair trials, I travel all over as an onsite stylist to the place of your convenience to ensure the morning of your wedding is smooth and carefree!
The Hair Trial:
Each bride of mine is different from the other. And, each bride has their own unique look and style. When I meet a new bride for the first time, it is my job to work with them to find the look they love. The first meet and greet is important. It’s my job to listen to the thoughts and interests of my brides, so I can create the look they envision for their hair on their wedding day.
Wedding Day Hair Schedule:
I am a highly organized person, which is important when showing up the morning of a wedding to style hair for parties of five or more. Two weeks before the big day, each bride of mine will receive a schedule made up with time-slots and appointments for each person in the party in need of services. The bride and I work together in creating the day-of hair schedule. And each bride can rest assure, knowing the schedule guarantees to keep everyone on track, allowing the rest of the day to unfold smoothly.
