Salon Talent



With 27 years of experience Mina’s life has been in hair styling. “I never wanted to be anything but a stylist.” Although a salon owner for the last eleven years Mina hasn’t allowed that to keep her from her passion. With training from Vidal Sassoon and Suki’s, Mina has never stopped developing her styling skills and over the last four years has been extensively trained via TIGI/Toni&Guy academies, including advanced cutting & teaching training in at TIGI’s Los Angeles Santa Monica Academy, and most recently advanced colour training at TIGI’s Soho academy in New York. “It’s still fun for me  and I’m always thinking hair, so it’s so satisfying to find that perfect cut for someone, and see them walk out of my salon glowing.”


Nicole completed her stylist certificate in BC and then attended Steiner Academy in the UK. Working on cruise ships for a year gave her huge experience with updos and formal styling. Now with 10 years of experience, much of it in the Tri-cities Nicole has many fans in the community, and we can see why. Nicole matches her warm personality with a real commitment to her craft. “I am really excited,and passionate about hair. “If I were to choose favouriyes I would have to say that I love formal styling and updos and men’s cuts, but I also love the challenge of colour work, and children’s cuts.”




Alicia has a huge wealth of hair styling experience and has been a favourite stylist in the Tricities for over 25 years. These years of experience have given her the confidence and skill to deal with almost any styling challenge that comes her way. Alicia keeps current with ongoing updates, but particularly enjoys doing classic cut and colour work. ” Making new friends is what I love most about hair dressing, I’ve had clients who brought their children to me, those kids grew up stayed as clients and now I’m cutting their children’s hair too – that is a wonderful feeling.”




Patti brings 25 years of hair styling experience to our team. After five years of intensive training in Eastern Canada Patti settled in Coquitlam and has been winning client loyalty with her superb styling talents ever since. From colour & styling to updos Patti is skilled in all aspects for hair styling, and comfortable with every hair type. “I quite often find myself taking care of an entire family, which is a wonderful way to get to know people”. When asked why she still loves cutting hair Patti says “Clients often tell me that I’m a good listener, and I think that is so important. I’ve always been committed to keeping my styling skills updated, but it’s seeing my clients happy and looking great that keeps my passion for hair styling alive



Carol thrives on the creativity of transforming her client’s ideas into cuts & colours that mesh perfectly with their lifestyle and look. And with twenty plus years of experience starting with training via Vidal Sassoon and continual educational updating, Carol has the cutting skills to achieve those results whether classic or contemporary. Equally at ease with long, short, and men’s styles Carol feels that “While I might really enjoy the creative part of working with the client to find the look they want, they seem to really appreciate the fact that I take the time at the outset to really understand what they need. And once we are done to always make sure they know how to easily re-create that look every day.
