All of our team members have completed Hairdressing School and are recognized as Qualified stylists by the government of BC.
Once joining our team, each qualified stylist goes through our own, in-salon, training program.
The program begins with the Fundamentals, and moves on to much more Advanced classes in all area’s of hair styling/ cutting and technical work.
As our team members master and complete each ‘level’, they are promoted and continue on with further advanced training.
We pride ourselves in the amount of education our team receives both in and out of the salon. Education motivates and encourages us to keep striving to be the best we can be, while also providing our clients with a superior level of service.
