silvia pereira stylist from toledo

today silvia our girl from toledo answered some questions :

How long are you working in the salon by now?
I’ve been living in Lisbon and working at Hairport for almost 7 years.

How comes that you are still here – isn’t it boring?

Well, on one side it is very tempting to move to some place else and start all over, but on the other side it’s also interesting to have a routine and to know how to deal with that. As long as I continue to have the liberty and support to explore other interests it will be a pleasure working here.

What would you really like to try out one day (but your client’s or you are too afraid)?

Something that I have never dared to do on a customer nor on me, but I just love it: a bob cut with everything clipped until above the ears. Does somebody dare to do this?

where would you like to work (at least for a while)

In Mexico City or in New York.

What do you think about fashion magazine cover page girls?

I think that this type of magazine is for the H&M or Zara generation that tends to democratize fashion because everybody has access to it and all the girls from Beja to Tokyo seem to dress, walk and have the same attitude.
These magazines are stereotyping teenagers more and more.

Why do you like Alex de la Iglesia movies?
I just love this Spanish director because he is dynamic, brutal, fun and he knows how to choose the soundtracks. He’s the Spanish Tarantino and recommend the film “Perdita Durango” starring Javier Barden and Rosie Perez.

What kind of music do you like these days?
Definitely Colombian Cumbia

    I tried dare to do this all my live, but i have no courage to do. But maybe someday we can do the dream together. I think that you want to do this in a girl hair, but this is not the case.

    Un saludo.
