In 2011 I sold Wendy Coles Salon in Marin County, California (just outside of San Francisco) to move back to my home country – Canada.
I now live and work in the Vancouver area, specifically in White Rock, BC, but still travel to California every couple of months days to work on my loyal, long-standing clients.
My foundation of education is based on a combination of Vidal Sassoon, Yosh, Schwarzkopf Professional, Bumble and Bumble as well as many others.
I believe that continuing education is the key to staying current on the latest trends as well as being an inspired hair stylist. My training helps me create looks that both suit as well as modernize any look. I also put a great importance on educating my clients on proper hair care by training them on how-to recreate what is done in the salon at home.
I have taken specialized classes in razor cutting, wavy – super curly hair cutting/colouring, hair smoothing (using non-toxic products) and hair extensions. If I had to choose, my favourite hair is fun, edgy/funky, new styles, but I truly love it all.
There is no greater compliment to me than when a client trusts me enough to say, “Do whatever you want” (and many of my clients do just that).
