Salon manager and stylist
Talisa is a very calm and charismatic person. She works incredibly well with children and treats every client like a friend. When it comes to hair, she loves creating styles that are fun, but manageable.
She is exceptionally skilled with curly/wavy hair, but is also adept with other hair types. Her favourite things to do with colour are ombres, full-head fashion colours, and peek-a-boo highlights!
Talisa spends most of her time watching TV while snuggled up with her various critters–two cats, and a very floppy basset hound–and playing Dungeons and Dragons. She has video game experience, but considers herself to be on the other end of the “geek spectrum” (sci-fi, fantasy, comics, etc).
So if you’re looking for someone easy-going and friendly, Talisa is your gal!
She ain’t ‘fraid of no hair.
“Hi, my name is Jen and I like cosplay, comics, and just about anything sci-fi, especially Star Wars!”
Jen has been doing hair since 2005 and is well versed in all aspects of hair but really enjoys doing short, edgy haircuts as well as fashion color.
She believes that a great experience at a salon starts with a thorough consultation and educating her clients on how to take care of their new look.
Jen is very outgoing and talkative so there will never be an awkward silence!
She enjoys going to local sci-fi, comic and cosplay conventions and regularly plays tabletop games at a few local board game stores.
Ashley is the resident Colour Mage of the salon and her brilliant, stunning colours have been seen and praised everywhere from New Westminster to Tokyo!
An alumnus of the prestigious Suki’s Academy, Ashley has been styling for 8 years. She’s a specialist in balayage hair painting and has taken inspiration from current Japanese styles and fashions. Countless people have left Ashley’s salon chair happy with a new, vivid ombre or with long, romantic curls.
Beyond B-Bombshell, Ashley is also a veteran cosplayer who frequents the local convention scene. Her gaming interests range from the stages of Street Fighter to the worlds of Final Fantasy to the horrors of Silent Hill. Recently Ashley has also taken more of an interest in comics (particularly DC). And yes, while she is an unapologetic makeup and fashion follower, Ashley also happens to be a grossly hardcore horror geek that loves all things spooky.

Dongyuan is a recent graduate of Vancouver Community College’s hairdressing program and has been excited to get into the stylist life with the B-Bombshell team.
Don’s interest in hair began after regularly dyeing his own hair when he was younger. Since then, he’s gotten comfortable with a pair of clippers in his hands doing barber cuts and skin fades as well as styling longer hair.
Away from the salon, Don enjoys watching nature documentaries, fashion and shopping online. Offline, he likes going to the gym and playing basketball.
In his early teens Don used to be a serious 16 hrs/day Maple Story gamer; nowadays he’s more likely to be found playing NBA 2K on his Xbox… albeit clocking in slightly fewer hours than in his youth.
Don also speaks many languages, and is comfortable conversing in English, Cantonese and Mandarin!
Welcome to the team, Don!
