Who We Are

Our Story

Ever since then, Amy and her team have strived to live up to everything they believe The Curly Red Head stands for. Working together like clockwork, they ensure everyone is taken care of efficiently, while receiving wonderful service and an even better result!

5 years

I started out 17 years ago working in long term care. As my circumstances changed after starting a family, I was looking for something new and fate dropped me here at The Curly Red Head. With my previous education giving me the skill set required to take wonderful care of people, I also learned how to become a logistical genius. Whether you’re an every day client or a bride on her journey to her wedding day, I work hard to ensure all our clients are taken care of. From delightfully answering the phone, to a splendid head massage during your hair wash, I strive to take excellent care of not only our clients but my colleagues too!

I knew since day one I was going to be a hair stylist. Didn’t matter what anyone said, that was the plan. I went to school at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, graduated with honours and made it on the merit list for highest grade point average. After working in salons for a few years, I made my way across the ocean to being a stylist on cruise ships. After some time gaining experience in Europe, I jumped ship & got my MAC makeup artistry certificate. Over the years I took a makeup course in NYC and continue to keep current with today’s trends. I am always happy, when everyone else is happy. I work hard to ensure whoever is in my chair, they leave with a smile on their face.

I recently completed the Hair Styling program at Algonquin College in Ottawa. I am having so much fun learning everything I can about this industry. Not only do I want to know as much as I can about hair, I also plan to dip my toes into the makeup side of things. During my years in high school, I got to work in salons and quickly knew that this is my passion. I look forward to seeing all that this industry has to offer and making the world a prettier place one head of hair at a time!

I LOVE fashion. I grew up in Perth and was excited to escape to the big city. Originally, I loved the idea of the fashion industry but thought that maybe I could bring fashion to the world of hair. I graduated from Versailles Academy and have hit the ground running. I am very excited to continue this path at The Curly Red Head, learning as much as I can, as I settle back into my home town!
