Britt and Jillian crossed paths at a dinner party in 2008 and formed an immediate bond that was palpable. This would begin the journey of a lifelong friendship and partnership. With Jillian’s extensive management background and Britt’s phenomenal artistry they took every opportunity to combine their talents on various projects over the years. As the duo began to flourish they quickly realized they had to find a way to solidify an alliance. Soon after they became partners of the Ken Paves Salon in West Hollywood where he guided the expansion of their individual repertoires to become an indomitable force in the industry. This experience was the inspiration that catapulted the ladies to take action on their long term goal they always had their sights set on...the birth of LookL.A Salon.

Britt’s career path in the beauty industry was paved at a young age. Observing in the midst of her mother's salon, she discovered her passion and drive for the art. Determined to learn the ins and outs of the industry, Britt went to school, honed her craft, and made the big move to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams. After years of hard work and dedication alongside her mentor Ken Paves, her dreams of traveling the world, photoshoots, and working with A-list celebrities became a reality. At the core of everything she did, she discovered that her true joy came from making clients feel beautiful and confident. Inspired by the urge to make a difference in the world, she decided to create a product and experience that would inspire everyone to find their inner confidence. Britt created LOOK - a friendly brand that not only works, but also includes guided help through the process of achieving that “LOOK" you’ve always wanted. Haircare doesn’t need to be over the top fancy, complicated, or exclusive and it’s time to spread confidence with the world.
