Andrea WhiteheadIndependent Stylists


I love to colour, especially balayage. There’s so many different techniques to get that perfect blend and dimension. I also love doing extensions. It’s so satisfying to see that before and after from short to long and thin to thick in just hours.  I love seeing the look on my clients face their first time…well every time!

I get inspired everyday from social media.  There’s so much at your fingertips.  Celebrities, other hairstylists from around the world and people I work with everyday.  There’s so much to learn and a lot of pretty hair to look at.

A memorable moment in my Career was winning a Contessa Award for the Student Apprentice category.  It was a great experience being surrounded by so many talented hairstylists from all over Canada.  Also learning from Johnny Ramirez and Anh Co Tran in Toronto.  Watching them do what they do and meeting them was so inspiring.

One weird personal thing about me is that I like buying reusable shopping bags but usually just use them once.
