So, you might be wondering who I am! My name is Hannah, I’m originally from a small town in England, and at just 21, I moved to Vancouver to further pursue my passion, hair. At just 6 years old I knew I wanted to be a hairstylist, from cutting my sisters hair, to Barbie dolls hair, and everything else in between (yes, even my own hair ) all these experiences made me want to be a hairstylist.
Behind the chair you can find me doing everything from clean precision cuts to curly natural texture, along with all things colour related!
When I’m not behind the chair I work as a portfolio artist with L’Oréal , helping hairstylists all over Canada further their education in advanced haircutting and styling.
It all began sweeping floors and making cups of tea for clients at just 15 years old. Every Saturday I would do that until the age of 16, when I left school and went straight into hair school for 2 years. At just 18 I was a stylist on the floor at a salon in Liverpool city centre. During this time I was chosen as a finalist for the GHD Style Squad, and after that, the success continued.
After moving to Canada at 21 , I took a liking for photoshoots, I planned my first collection the year I got to Canada which placed semi finalist in the new comers category. 2 years later, I then went on to win the BC Hairstylist of the Year, my proudest achievement to date. After that, I entered a mens collection in the Contessa Awards which placed finalist in Canada. To this day I continue to do photoshoots and advance my knowledge of editorial work.
I remember as a little girl, looking into the mirror and tying my hair up for the very first time, I will never forget the feeling that rushed through me and the smile on my face when I looked in the mirror. I felt this sense of accomplishment.
My mission today behind the chair is to create a whole vibe for someone that is effortless, inspiring and unique to that individual. I want people to feel truly themselves, and I feel hair is the key to that for many of us. I want to create a hairstyle that they can recreate at home with ease. I want my clients to be able to look in the mirror and feel that feeling I felt as a little girl , every time they do their hair.
