Daily Inspiration: Meet Brittany Tillman

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittany Tillman.  

Hi Brittany, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My first love wasn’t hair surprisingly. At the age of 10, I saw my cousin doing hair in my granny’s bathroom. My cousin would have me and some of my cousins help shampoo and blow-dry her clients. I saw how women felt after she finished and I loved how I felt when she would do mine. So, I took an interest and started braiding hair. But I still didn’t want a career out of it. I would do family members’ hair, but yet and still I had other plans. Finally, my sister said to me you need to go to hair school she took me to the hair school, and the rest is history I simply fell in love. I’ve worked in a great hair salon for almost 8 years till finally, I desired to have my own. We started small in a beautiful suit then brunch out to our very own building. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Absolutely not! Lol! Social media will make anything look really easy and beautiful. Starting any kind of business is tough and you will have bumps in the road, for me unfortunately I believe in the hype of social media and learn really quickly. The biggest struggle I had to unlearn was false expectations and rushing things along, wanting stuff to be done at a fast and quick pace, that kind of thinking set me up for a lot of heartbreaks. Thank God, God slowed me down and told me to enjoy this journey one step at a time. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a natural hairstylist as well I specialize in short haircuts and short hairstyles. I’m known for my short haircuts soft and defined curls without abusing the integrity of the hair. I am also known for my fast services, getting clients in and out the door lol. I am most proud of; staying true to myself, I used to do weaves services a lot! And I wanted to come out and just do short hair and natural hair, there were a lot of opinions but I decided this is what I wanted to do, No matter the trend! Or what was popular. What sets me apart from others I’m very hands-on with my clients I communicate and listen to their wants and need for their hair journey I’m not a pushy hairdresser, lol.

So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
I’m always open to collaborating and working with others, I love to learn new techniques and just simply work with others who have the same love and passion as I do. There are simple ways to support, share our posts, tell a friend, passed out our flyers, and most importantly word of mouth.
