Cathy

Hairstylist

Hi I’m Cathy. I started my career as a hair stylist in cosmetology when I was a senior in high school. My passion for the industry has taken me by surprise and I now not only work at the salon but also volunteer in theatre productions doing hair in and around Calgary. I was recently the recipient of the C.A.T. award (Calgary Amateur Theatre) for being an outstanding volunteer.

I attend courses regularly to keep my skills up to date and learn new trends both in colour and cuts. I love going to beauty shows to see new products, styles and to meet inspirational people in the industry. My passion for creating new looks keeps me motivated and excited to go to the salon every day. I love creating extensions, experimenting with unique colors and cuts, and doing artistic styling for grad students and brides. You want to be dazzled – come in to see me!
