My name is Lily and as far as I can remember, I have loved hair, make up, nail polish, etc. As my wonder years went by, I would volunteer and so would my clients by giving them haircuts, fringe trims and Updo’s then after sending them home to surprise their parents. Some were not so impressed with too much make up on or not enough hair left on their kids heads. Soon enough I started trimming little dogs nails and hair including our own.
Throughout the years I moved back to Santiago, Chile where I lived for 2 1/2 years. Getting the chance to see were I was born, my family, Chilean history and my culture. I was sadden to leave but thrilled to come back home to Canada.
When I decided to go forward in the Beauty Industry was shortly after I lost my father to Cancer, when I walked into a spa to get my eyebrows waxed, the lady suggested threading and shortly after a facial followed by a pedicure and Reflexology. She made me feel like me again. Alive! I wanted to make people feel fabulous again.
I quit my job and enrolled in her Aesthetics program. After 10 months, I also made time to enroll into an intense Reflexology program.
I successfully graduated and started working at a spa where I could apply myself with all my skills but I wanted to keep learning so I enrolled into the Hair Design Program for 10 months, graduated, got hired through Sears Hair Studio to start my apprenticeship.
After becoming a Journeyman Stylist I was determined to have my own business, 3 months later I did.
Great Lengths Beauty Studio!
