Philosophy

I believe that it is essential to take time to collaborate with my clients for their individual needs. I generally tend to encourage clients to work with what their hair responds to naturally, but also appreciate forming hair into edgier or precision cuts & colour.

Along the Way...

I went to hair school at VCC about 18 years ago and received my hairdresser/cosmetologist certification. I then apprenticed for 3 years and have been a stylist since.

My extra training over the years, includes advanced coursework at Suki's, and at Vidal Sassoon in London. I have the Wella master colourist certification, and have completed the Aveda teacher-training program. This was followed by teaching students at Aveda.  

How it's done

The process is pretty simple: first we discuss what you'd like to have (or not have) done to your hair.  I then adapt your/our hairstyle ideas to work with your personal characteristics and hair needs. Sometimes hair language can be a bit convoluted; I work well visually, so feel free to bring in any images, or drawings etc.

A little aside

Currently, I am attending the Fine Arts program at Emily Carr University of Art + Design part-time.
