Making waves as a hairstylist is no easy feat and Stefano Silvestri is no slouch when it comes to earning respect as one of the most highly-talented male hairdresser's to come out of Sydney.
Stefano has earned his stripes in the past 18 months with various accolades; ie. assisting Caterina Di Biase for her entry into the Ssh! Australia event, whilst solidifying his position as a (Men's Category) Finalist for the Australian Hair Fashion Awards and also just recently; an Australian Semi Finalist [ along with PORTFOLIO Crows Nest salons Elissa Dominish and Samuel Maverick ] in the CREATIVE VISION category in Wella's prestigious TREND VISION 2016 competition.
With a feature that's long-overdue for such a talented human; lets gain a small insight into the talent that is, Stefano:
Name: Stefano Silvestri
Age: 25 years
About Me: Hairdressing runs in my family, with my own career path following in the footsteps of my brother who owns his own salon. Hard working, fun, with a true love for what I do. Cutting hair is my passion and curating my style since 2010.
I’m an Advanced Senior Stylist at Portfolio Hair Mona Vale; where I work in a relaxed and easy-going environment. I'm continually learning and truly appreciate the opportunities to learn and continue to evolve my passion for hair and my industry.
I take influence and inspiration from the hairdressing idols that surround me, including Angelo Seminara whose work pushes me to be the best I can be. My former colleague Emiliano Vitale also has played a large role in my career; encouraging me to translate my emotions into hair creations.
In the past year I have had some amazing opportunities to learn from globally-revered hairdressers and educators including Dario Cotroneo/DCI Education, é SALON and private training with Emiliano, cutting & colouring duo of Mazella & Palmer, with various education sessions from WELLA Education.
Im also proud to be an AHC Youthworx member and was very happy to be a crew member for the 2014/2015 Ssh! Australia events.
I look forward to taking hold of more opportunities in this industry, with one day being recognized as an influential hairdresser.
