Angelina started out in the hair industry in 2002. Over the years, Angelina has taken many advanced education seminars from industry leaders, such as Shwartzkopf, Redken, L’Anza, Kevin Murphy, Goldwell, Joico, L’Oreal Professional, as well as an intense one week training seminar at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Toronto, Ontario and a 3 day Seminar with La Biosthetique Academy in Vancouver, British Colombia.
As a competitive stylist, Angelina has been a semi-finalist in 2005 and 2008 for Canadian Hairstylist of the Year awards. Her talent was showcased in movies such as “The Class Project” with Abigail Breslin and Hermione Granger, and “While I Was Gone” with Kirstie Alley, among a few.
As an artist, crafter and musician, Angelina finds inspiration in the different mediums and textures found in the arts she is surrounded by. Colour palettes that range from smooth and fluid gradients, to bold and bright colours, highly textured to the satiny smooth, all translate easily into beautiful hair.
Angelina enjoys every aspect of hairstyling, but especially enjoys hilighting, the challenge of colour corrections, working with curly hair, and styling hair up. Her specialty is wedding hair. She is meticulous, and enjoys every moment that comes with making a bride feel special on her wedding day.
Her current go to styling product is from Kevin Murphy. Smooth Again is a leave-in smoothing treatment that goes a long way. It offers that perfect blend of hold and control, while smoothing out even the most unruly curls, with added heat protection. Smooth Again leaves the hair silky soft, moisturized, and weightless without that feeling of sticky product in the hair.
When she’s not behind the chair, Angelina does pencil and pencil crayon portraits, as well as many other crafty hobbies. Angelina is married to a wonderful husband and has a 2.5 year old daughter and son.
