MASTER STYLIST / OWNER
Silvia always had a passion for hair and the industry. Growing up in Europe she had the opportunity to travel to Paris and Milan to see fashion, make-up and hair first hand. It was clear that this was the career she wanted to proceed.
Silvia accomplished her goal to become a career stylist and managed several salons before she was able to bring Tophat Beauticians & Barbers in existence.
She is looking forward to providing opportunities for other young stylists to achieve various levels of success, and mentoring them with her guidance and positive attitude, as they pursue their goals in an ever-evolving industry.
In her downtime you can find Silvia pursuing her health goals, giving back to the community or hanging out with friends & family.

Clarissa’s passion is Hair. Growing up she would style her sisters and aunts hair. Her family would always get compliments on the styles Clarissa did on them. After spending weekends at the salon with her aunts, she quickly realized that she wanted to turn her talent into a career as a Hairstylist.
She would watch one of her aunt style hair while the other would cut and color the hair. Clarissa simply admired their collaborative efforts. She was so intrigued and it was easy for her to replicate.
Needless to say, she received her professional license back in 2007 plus her educator license to teach cosmetology.
Every year she attends Hair Shows. This is where Clarissa gets an immeasurable amount of inspiration. It allows her to expand her talent, and bring the newest and hottest trends back to the salon and to her clients.
Clarissa’s specialties are hair extensions, loc’s, color, cuts and up-do's. She specializes in all hair textures, from coils to straight hair.
Outside of styling hair Clarissa loves cooking, singing and most of all spending time with her 6 year old son.
