Favourite Products:

Best year for hair: I really like 2014/15, all of the styles are soft, natural and achievable. 

If you could live in any Decade what would it be?: I like the simple styles of the 70's. Natural and feminine. 

What do you do to relax: I love to bike around the river with my family, and relax up North at a cottage. 

Hair Achievement: I had a client who wanted a big colour change and after it was done I had a well respected hairstylist who told me that it was an award winning colour. That made all of the work that I put into it feel worth it!

Why I love my job: I love when someone leaves feeling great about themselves! It's amazing how hair has such a huge impact on our confidence! 

Favourite season: I love everything about the fall! Except that winter follows close behind. 

Favourite spot in Stratford: I lived away from Stratford for a season and what I missed most about the city was the walks around the Avon River! 

Fashion icon: I don't really have a fashion icon but what I like most is when people are able to put certain things together and create a look that is great.

What co-workers say about me: Always looking for ways to help and wanting to learn, she likes to make sure her job is well done, she is always keeping busy with cleaning around the salon and very understanding. 

Fun Fact about me: I really enjoy a good espresso, especially when I'm able to overlook the ocean or in beautiful Northern Ontario.
