Trish is a Master Stylist, with over 10 years of industry experience and specializes in women’s colouring and cutting. She’s inspired by Hollywood looks and soft, natural colouring techniques.

“I just came out of the salon and oh my goodness did Trish do such an amazing job! … When I met with the hairstylist, I expressed my concern to keep my hair as long as possible but to also liven it up and cut dead ends off (confusing, I know)! She did such a great job at explaining the benefits of cutting some length off to give my hair more life and was so knowledgable in what would look best and how to upkeep the healthiness of my hair! After looking for a new hair salon, Im happy to say that I’ll be back!
