Who We Are

Hair Artisans was founded by Rebecca in August of 2011. She partnered with Ryan in 2016 and together they have created a warm and friendly boutique salon with a welcoming neighbourhood feel.

Our goal is to exceed our clients expectations. We have carefully curated all of the professional products and tools we use in the salon with performance, safety and sustainability in mind. We use L’Oreal Professionnel Inoa ammonia-free colour and Redken Shades EQ . We proudly work with Kevin Murphy, a company that goes to great lengths to keep environmental sustainability in mind for both their products and their company. We can also recommend products that are PETA approved, cruelty-free and have no artificial fragrances. Our team of stylists and colourists will help you to keep your hair looking amazing and feeling healthy long after you’ve left the salon.

Rob
Colourist & Stylist
What is your favorite thing about your career?
I love to see the look on a clients face when you can actually deliver what they are searching for!
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest accomplishment would be doing a shoot this year that made it to NYC Times Square !!
What are your 2 hair pet peeves?
1) trying home colour to achieve A list colour. Stick to box dye for basic work
2) Believing you can’t be blonde. Anyone can be blonde if the shade matches their skin tone and everyone should try it once!

Sam
Stylist
Why did you decide to join the Hair Industry?
My part time job in high school was at a hair salon. I loved the atmosphere of working for a small business and especially one that’s sole purpose is to make people feel better about themselves. I always enjoyed going to work and knew that looking forward to work is very uncommon. I felt that I had already found the right environment for me!
What is your favorite thing about your career?
That moment when someone looks in the mirror and their face lights up because you have helped them see their own beauty by achieving their hair goals.

Why did you decide to join the Hair Industry?
Hair can dramatically change a person’s mood and making people feel good and happy even for a moment gives me so so so much joy.
What is your favorite thing about your career?
It just started, but the most exciting thing is that it seems like I can mold it to what I want it to be!
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Deciding to change my career after 15 years in Media/Digital. It was the scariest thing I’ve done, but I’m proud that I’ve made it this far!
Favorite type of hair to do and why?
Not really a favourite, but there is nothing more satisfying than watching really tiny curls being straightened by an straight iron. It might just be me, but I think there is so much satisfaction in it!
