About Anna Cecchi Smith
Anna is a stylist for L'Oreal Professional, and has been working in the hair industry for 20 years. She began her career in Italy where she studied to be a fashion designer. After getting married, Anna moved to the states where she dreamed of pursuing her design career in New York City. Her husband wasn't keen on the idea of living in such a vast & dense metropolis; so Anna turned to her second passion: Makeup! When she attended cosmetology school she also learned to the science of hair. Anna knew the struggle of spending so much time searching for a hairstylist who actually listened to her wants & needs. And if she was facing that turmoil then other women must be in the same position. Because of this she made yet another career path change. She would become a hair stylist who would listen to her clients and use her knowledge to give them their best styled, but more importantly, healthiest hair yet. Her favorite part of the job is when clients trust her to change their image. Nothing is better to her than a client leaving with a smile on their face!
