Brittany joined Continental in 2013 and is a graduate from Wright Beauty Academy. "My passion comes from the happiness on my guest’s faces. I believe we not only provide hair and makeup services, but we create from an inspiration. I have found a lot of inspiration when traveling to hair shows, particularly the Chicago Show in 2012 and Redken's Symposium in Vegas 2015. Seeing everyone enjoying the same things as I do inspires me to achieve a successful career in the beauty industry, making people feel amazing about themselves and the way they look."
