Tina Braccia - Level 2 Associate Stylist
I have loved hair since before I can remember. Being able to sit next to my pop pop as I watched him cut my families hair is what really triggered my desire for a career as a hairstylist. Cutting my older sisters hair with craft scissors helped too! I started at Belle Mariposa in the summer of 2013 while also attending Lansdale Cosmetology part time at night. I started as a shampoo assistant and began learning the ropes. A year and a half later, I passed State Boards and earned my license, which lead me to my apprenticeship with Tracey VanDenPlas. Tracey was able to continue my education and prepare me for my new career. Finally in March of 2016, I became a full time stylist - my dream was finally becoming a reality! Today, I am enjoying creating fun looks for my clients in a beautiful salon. I wouldn't trade my career, coworkers, or clients for the world!
