We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Lloyd and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brittany, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success is not letting fear stop me from achieving my goals. There will always be doubts but you just have to keep going!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a professional Hairstylist and Makeup artist at my salon Glam and Glow Beauty Studio. What sets me apart from others is my drive to keep striving to achieve my goals and allowing God to lead me. I got to where I want to be professionally by choosing an industry that I was passionate about and taking it very seriously. I knew that I wanted to work closely with women and not only make them feel better about how they look on the outside, but also to speak life into what they may be dealing with on the inside. Working in the beauty industry can be trying at times but throughout my 7 years in the industry I have learned that quality work and consistency is key, and I make sure to deliver that to everyone who visits my salon!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When in Atlanta I love to go to different places like Piedmont Park for a nice outdoor picnic and to enjoy nature. I also frequent Ponce City Market for great shopping and eateries! One of the most exciting things to check out here in ATL to me are the historic sites that are dedicated to black culture such as the Martin Luther King Jr. museum!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to shout out my husband & my daughter for always encouraging me and supporting my decision to pursue my dreams! It has not always been easy but they never stopped motivating me to put my best foot forward.
