In 1987, Silvana began working in her father’s barbershop, which was established in 1967. Silvana also attended London School of Hairdressing to get her hairdressing certificate. She traveled abroad and attended Vidal Sasoon Academy in England. Silvana took over her father’s barbershop before his passing in 1991 and has kept his shop and legacy alive since then.
Silvana’s passion and extensive experience in the barbering world has allowed her to be a part of many influential programs and events within the barbering community and continues to do so as she grows as a barber & instructor.
In 2011, Gerardo walked into Lynn Valley Barbershop hoping to get apprenticeship hours for his training program. He was young, curious, and eager to learn the hair business. 15 years later he finds himself co-owner of the shop with a loyal clientele following.
With over 20 years of experience, he specializes in fades and scissor cuts and is always up for a new style challenge. What makes Gerardo’s haircut unique is his approach to personalized customer service. He spends the time to get to know each client to build trust and they always leave knowing that they received the best-customized hairstyle.
Andrew is a certified barber. He started barbering as a hobby, cutting his own hair and his friends hair from home. He decided early on in his senior year to attend London School of Barbering located in downtown Vancouver.He took the Old school barber program that took about 6 months to complete. Throughout the program we learn a lot about basics of cutting hair and techniques needed to survive in a barbershop. Halfway through the program his natural talent was noticed by one of the instructors Silvana who also is one of the owners of Lynn Valley Barbershop.
Silvana, hired him as a student and offered Andrew more hours after he completed the course earned his certification, which brings us to today. Since the day the first day he started at Lynn Valley Barershop Andrew says “feels like a home away from home. Also a huge pleasure to work under Gerardo and Silvana along with my other co-workers.”
