Stephanie Pineda lights up any room she walks into. One might say she embodies the Los Angeles sunshine from where she was born and raised and has brought that glow with her to Chicago.
Having worked in the hospitality industry for over six years, Stephanie found a new family in the staff at Hampton Social prior to the pandemic. They helped her settle into the Windy City and grow her new life, as a single mom in the city. Since then Stephanie had been hitting the books at Cosmetology School, John Amico School of Hair Design, and now works for Anthony Cristiano Salon in Trump Tower.
An open book and beautiful soul, Stephanie is inspired to help others through various tough situations by spreading messages of positivity, hope, and encouragement through her social media platforms. Most importantly, she shares her own stories of hardships, abuse, and the many painful moments she has experienced in the hopes that by sharing her story, she can help others cope and learn how to overcome their own hardships. She strives to teach others to never give up and never stop pursuing their dreams. Life is tough, but we have to find ways to continue to learn and grow.
