LILY TALAMAIVAO/Owner & Licensed Instructor
Lily received her Cosmetology license in 2007 from South Seattle Community College. Following graduation, she was offered an intern position at a prestigious salon in downtown Seattle called RED. After internship, she landed a stylist position at an AVEDA concept salon, XAZZ. At XAZZ, she began teaching braiding classes for parents that had children with curly textures of hair. In 2009, she branched off to be an independent contractor at Foxycut Salon in Pioneer Square where she is still working as a Stylist. In 2012, her love for education encouraged her to pursue an Instructors license from Seattle Central Community College. Shortly after, she was hired as the Lead Night Instructor at Tint School of Makeup & Cosmetology located in downtown Seattle where she taught for 2yrs while also working at Foxycut during the day.
Lily enjoys working with all textures and genres of hair. Her clientele varies from haircolor, precision cutting to providing specialty services including braids, locs, updos and extensions. In 2013, she finished 2nd place for a hairshow at the Seattle Center under the braiding category. Lily has 20yrs of braiding experience beginning when she was a freshman in High School. Her inspiration was Alicia Keys inconic braids when she first hit the music scene. Her passion for braiding lead her to Cosmetology school so she refers to braiding as her ‘first love’.
In 2016, Lily began TEXTURE STYLIST to address the need for continuing education that was local and affordable. It is her hope that the diverse classes TEXTURE STYLIST will offer can help professionals become more versatile in their skills and broaden the services they can offer.
Fenix Capoeira – Youth (12 & under)
In learning Capoeira, a student develops skills in self-defense, acrobatics, fitness, instrument playing, rhythm and singing, language skills, teamwork, and strategy development.
Capoeira instills the values of responsibility, self-confidence all while awakening creativity through the development of self-expression. Through fun games, drills, and exercises, children learn to “play capoeira” with an understanding of limits and respect for each other. Classes will keep your child physically fit and mentally engaged. Students will learn the movements of capoeira along with the music and songs traditionally used in the sport.
The Instructors and adult role-models in Capoeira teach young people valuable life lessons—confidence, leadership, goal-setting, team-work, expression, cultural and social cooperation, respect and tradition, and habits that can lead to a lifetime of good health and civic involvement.
We welcome kids aged 4 – 12 with or without prior experience, and at any level of fitness. First class is free! West Seattle classes are led by Graduada Água-viva under the direction of C.M. Fenix of Grupo Candeias Seattle.

The skills and attitudes you acquire will help you in all facets of life. Karate training is more of a competition with oneself and students learn focus, confidence, and self-control. The environment is ideal for those who love physical activity but shy away from the pressures often associated with team sports. It is a place to build positive relationships, strengthen value systems, and learn important life skills.
