Who are we?
We are salon professionals and salon fanatics, who want to be of service to hairstylists and barbers working to achieve their goals and dreams.
Hairstylists make the world a more beautiful place - and it is our pleasure and honour to be part of your journey.
"Hairdressers are a wonderful breed. You work one-on-one with another human being and the object is to make them feel so much better and to look at themselves with a twinkle in their eye." - Vidal Sassoon
One thing that we have learned from the mandatory closures during Covid-19 is how much our guests truly love us and value us. They need us in their lives due to the loving relationships we have cultivated with them and the way that we make them feel fantastic about themselves. Many of them want us to be deemed an "essential service"! Their appointment with us is arguably the highlight of their day, week and perhaps even their month! Never forget the great power and privilege that you hold as their chosen hairstylist. You are greatly loved and valued.
Please let us clarify and emphasize the point that we do NOT work for the Ontario College of Trades or the MTCU.
We create these posts and offer study notes and guidance for the Ontario hair license exam because after working in the hair industry for 10 years, we have seen a lot of the struggles that our colleagues have experienced...but getting their hair license has opened doors and opportunities for them. Read our blog to find out why we want to help our colleagues pass their hair license exam. Our goal is to share this information with you so that you can get on with your career in the hair industry and achieve your dreams.
If I could successfully pass the license exam, I know that you can too! So we are here to share what we know and the resources at our disposal to help you with your studying.
How do we want to do this?
- By providing you with the study material you need to pass the Ontario hair licensing exam. Getting your license will boost your confidence when you are serving your clients and will allow you to have access to the professional products you need to run your business.
- By providing you with FREE educational resources and information in one convenient place on this website. You will find blog posts with images and descriptions of different colours and products we have tried and used, the latest trends, and anything else we believe to be useful and helpful in the glorious world of hair!
- In the near future, by giving you access to affordable hair tools and supplies as you are in the process of mastering your trade. Because who wants to accidentally drop a pair of scissors that costs hundreds of dollars or an expensive carbon comb as they’re still learning? No one.
We wish you all the best on your hairstyling journey and feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or comments!
