Lilly Leota

LILLY LEOTA

3RD YEAR APPRENTICE / PROTÉGÉ

Our growth with the young people we employ, gives us proud moments when we come across talented and professional young hairdressers like our 'Lili'. Lili joined us fresh to start a career at La Unica Salon and what a great asset she is to the team.

Her braiding and styling skills executed beautifully with a professional and soft approach. Earlier in the peace her hands at the basin are constantly requested, however now she is producing colour work under her Senior team members and styling her requests.

This means she is passing on her skills to her younger team members and assuring they are fit for the takeover. Training, she does a lot of and she exercises her skills readily and consistently producing great results and beautiful hair.

Recently completing her De Lorenzo Rookies Boot Camp 2016 and attending De Lorenzo ASPYA Conference 2016, Lili is growing into her qualifications with great results.

Lili brings a great vibe to the salon that we miss when she is off having a life. Her passion towards her craft is inspiring and very creative which comes from all her hard work.

Her knowledge of De Lorenzo Hair care means she is our go to girl for all that is De Lorenzo, a proud advocate, her advice for client solutions gives her a great success rate and raving fans.
