Kamila Benhabib

 

Owner – “My favourite product is Neuma’s Smoothing Creme! It smells amazing and makes blow drying all types of hair a breeze.”

Kamila founded Mila Chic Hair Design in 2011 from her basement with just a makeshift “station”, a mirror on the wall, and a sink. From there Kamila set out on her road to realize her dream of creating a truly different salon experience in her home town of Brantford. Over her 16 year career, Kamila has made it a point to learn as much as possible. As a stylist working in downtown Toronto she put her skills to work learning how to cut, colour and style all types of hair, from super straight to 4c curls. She volunteered her time and talent during Toronto Fashion week as well as many other fashion events and photoshoots. Kamila spent some time working on the education team for Kevin Murphy and even assisted Kevin himself during some events in Toronto. The experience of working with different people in this industry and learning from them is a value she has instilled as part of her salon culture
