We are honoured that Simone has chosen to work at Zazou. She has advanced education in Europe and would be charging over $200 for a haircut. Zazou is introducing her at $65…wow snap! She will provide an amazing experience that will “blow” you away. I hope you enjoy her as much as we do!
The reason I got into the industry was because I worked in a shop during college and my boss was a very technical cutter. I could stand and watch him cut hair all day. I was fascinated by it and wanted to know how it was done. I have been in the industry for 10 years and I received my initial education with an apprenticeship program through St. Clair College in Windsor, Ontario. I continued my education through an academy in England, Germany and France. This was for advanced colouring and cutting.
There are two La Biosthetique Trend Shows that I participate in every year, helping to develop the look to coincide with the theme of the show. I have worked and attended Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver.
I look to fashion a lot for inspiration. It goes hand in hand with hair. Working with developing the La Biosthetique Trend Show every season always keeps me motivated. Not only by the looks, but from my team members also. Talent and inspiration is all around us.
I specialize in cutting and colouring. Chemistry and math have always been my favourite subjects in school. Instead of being an engineer, I wanted a more colourful way of utilizing my strengths. I love to problem solve and create and that’s what colour is. To cut hair is a feeling using technical direction. The different textures and length of hair guide that feeling to create something amazing. The technical knowledge aid in executing the look and with all these elements working together my guest can bring their look home and recreate it on a daily basis.
I have been doing hair for 10 years and I feel I’ve only scratched the surface. This industry of hair is constantly evolving, exploring, inventing, resurrecting inspiring and so much more. It’s a blessing to be a part of it daily.
