Level 6 Mythic Rare/Salon Manager
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.

A graduate of Blanche MacDonald, Kimiko has a background in competition training for colour, up styling, and cutting events and is excited to specialize in razor cuts, up styles, braiding, balayage, and curly hair cutting techniques.
Kimiko has had her fair share of side-quests and adventures.

From hair tattoos to balayage, Kimiko is always looking for a fun challenge. When she’s not spelunking, surfing, or chasing after a bus she most definitely left her passport on, Kimiko enjoys gaming, watching 80s horror movies, (if the blood shoots out looking like blood, is it even blood?) or screaming at true crime documentaries.
