Since I loved doing it so much, I got a job, naturally, at a hair salon down the street from my childhood home. I began working there at the age of 17 as a shampoo girl (aka Hairstylist Assistant). I worked there for the better part of 10 years; watching and learning from Master Hairstylists and Colour Technicians. I felt confident and prepared to take the next step in my journey and decided to go to hair school to become a licensed Hairstylist. As of 2007, I earned my Diploma from Algonquin College, acquired my Ontario Hairstyling Licence and began working on clients; applying root touch-ups and blow-dries to highlights and cuts.
