I feel so lucky each and every day to get to help our clients at Charisma look and feel fabulous. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the look in the eyes of a client who we have helped to achieve the look they wanted.
Hair styles and fashion are always evolving – it’s our profession to keep up with the latest looks, cuts, techniques, and fashions – and I take that responsibility seriously. Thankfully, it’s not only a profession, but a passion I have had since I was a little girl – so it’s still fun and exciting too!
As a stylist and as the owner of Charisma Hair Fashion, the bounce in your step and the smile on your face as you leave our salon is such a gratifying reward to me and our team.
Call us today – we can’t wait to see you again!
I was 12 years old when I did my first haircut. I convinced my mother to let me trim her hair with the kitchen scissors. I would not recommend this. It was not the best looking haircut I have seen or done, however my passion for hair became evident and it encouraged me to pursue my interest in hairstyling. Over the years while working at Charisma, I have had the opportunity to take many educational courses and have travelled to Italy, New York, Miami, LA, and many other cities. This has helped me to stay current with the latest trends. As a master stylist and manager, I pride myself in continuing to learn new techniques and deepen my skillset. I strive to continuously encourage and support my team through strong work ethics and inspire them to be the best that they can be.
I was born and raised in Kaiserslautern, Germany and I can tell you with all honesty, the only thing I love more than Schnitzel and Strudel is hair…but don’t worry, I only eat the first two.
After completing 3 years of extensive cosmetology training, I moved to Canada in November of 2011 and quickly fell in love with this country, its beautiful people and Charisma Hair Fashion Salon–the only place that has allowed me to mistake the word “porcupine” for “pikeyporn” without mercilessly teasing me. I still think that’s a ridiculous name for an animal.
I’ve been styling and colouring hair for over 9 years now and it’s still a great pleasure and privilege to meet new clients, learn new techniques and be a part of the team here at Charisma.
“I’ll” gonna see you soon! (Another common phrase I like to say wrong!)
Senior Stylist/ Hair Extension Specialist
I began my career as a hair artisan in 2007. After receiving my Red Seal, I decided to specialize my talents globally. I have travelled extensively throughout Canada and the United States, attending multiple advanced colour and cutting programs, staying current and keeping up with the changing of trends. I was featured in Western Canada Fashion week for my hair and make-up design, and since have collaborated with numerous artists and models doing photoshoots, runway and other specialized projects. Not only do my passions include colours and cuts, I also love to do extensions, braiding, men’s fades, hair tattooing, hair painting, and so much more.
Doing hair has always been a passion of mine, and with 2 sisters and a mom I had many opportunities to explore my talents. I didn’t discover my true abilities until high school where I had an incredible teacher inspire me to pursue my dream. I completed the program with the highest marks earning me the cosmetology award. While hairstyling I’ve learned so much from my teachers, my coworkers, and the classes I’ve taken. I’ve always taken pride in being a creative person, and to see my ideas brought to life fills me with extreme joy. I cannot wait to learn and grow so much more.
Receptionist/ Office Administrator
I moved to Edmonton from a farm on the outskirts of a small town in Manitoba in the spring of 2016. Since moving to the city, I have had the honour of working part time at Charisma Hair Fashion. I am also a full- time student studying business at NAIT, with a specialization in accounting. I love that not only do I get to interact with a variety of people at the salon, but I also get the opportunity to gain experience while doing so. With being at the front of the salon, I get to experience first-hand all of the beautiful transformations that happen here! I love getting to see how truly happy clients are as they leave our salon with their new hair!
Stylist/General Operations Administrator
I always knew I was meant to work in the beauty industry. Growing up, I was always cutting my barbies hair, asking my mom if I could play with hers, or if she would help braid mine. I found my place in the industry in 2011 after graduating from Est-Elle Academy; my career has taken flight ever since. I have traveled within Canada and the United States studying business, advanced cutting and coloring techniques, and keeping a keen grasp on all of the latest trends. I love what I do more and more everyday. All in all, my passion is people, and I cannot wait to meet you!
