Stylist, Educator + Makeup Artist
The Parlour Highlands
Phil Lombardo – The Parlour Highlands Partner
When I started doing hair: 2008
When I started at The Parlour: 2011
What inspires/motivates me in the industry:
Learning motivates me the most in the industry. I’m always hungry for knowledge. Whether it’s in the form of classes, watching YouTube videos, reading books, or even Pinterest, I am constantly pushing myself to learn and develop as a stylist. Recently, I’ve been motivated by educating new stylists on how to get started in the industry. It’s refreshing being around new talent. It takes me back to the excitement of when I first started this dream career. I get so much inspiration from following current trends in the fashion industry. I think it is extremely important that anyone who has the word stylist in their title, (eg. hair stylist or clothing stylist), must keep up with current trends in both the clothing and beauty world.
What I am happiest doing:
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I try as often as I can to get away on the weekends.
Additional industry involvement:
In 2012, I joined the wedding team. It’s fantastic being a part of making someones big day special. Also, I’m in the process of training so I can be apart of the education team.
What I love most about The Parlour:
The list goes on and on. There are so many things I love about The Parlour. An important one for me is education. I love that every Monday The Parlour offers free classes to all of their employees. In The Parlour Highlands, we are such a small group that it feels like being part of a family. I feel like I can come to anyone of them with anything, whether it be about hair or personal life. The culture at The Parlour is truly one of a kind: free will, an open door policy, and respect for each persons individual journey. I love this place, and I could honestly brag about it all day.
