Sylvia Essa

Senior Colorist, DryCut Specialist


Sylvia Essa became infatuated with hair and beauty at an early age and knew she had to follow her passion, enrolling in the Technical School of Bosnia. After graduation, she attended the Wella Professional Hair Color training program in Munich, Germany. Upon returning, she furthered her knowledge of cutting and styling with some of the region’s leading stylists.

With this foundation she set about her career as a budding professional stylist, and has spent the past 15 years developing her style and honing her skills while working in salons, photo and TV shoots, and fashion shows in Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia. Her insatiable drive to perfect her art form kept her traveling throughout Europe to attend numerous hair shows from industry leaders such as Vidal Sassoon and Toni & Guy, each time gaining valuable knowledge and inspiration.

Now her path has led her to Los Angeles, where she's had the distinct pleasure to join the team at Curt Darling Salon.

Through years of practice, training and an innate grasp of her client's needs, Sylvia will deliver amazing results regardless of your desired look.
