Talisa Correa

Level 6 Mythic Rare/Salon Manager
She/Her

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.

Lindsay Heighton

Level 4 Legendary
She/Her

Lindsay has been playing with hair as far back as she can remember. When friends would ask “want to play outside?” she would reply with “how about I play with your hair instead?!” When high school came around she found herself spending all her time in the theatre. Eventually she ended up doing haircuts in the change rooms for her cast mates. Finally she was free to go get her degree and really start creating masterpieces!

Seven years of doing hair later Lindsay has seen it all! You name it, she’s up to the challenge! Her personal favourites are doing all shades of the rainbow anywhere from pastel to neon, or bright and beautiful blondes! She also adores long mermaid length hair where the possibilities are endless. Her dream is to recreate a Harley Quinn hairstyle to bring her favourite character to life!

In her spare time you will find Lindsay at home playing a range of video games such as Skyrim, Legend of Zelda, Batman Arkham City, Resident Evil, Stardew Valley, Dark Souls, you name it! She also just started playing D&D and could spend hours on a single quest! She has a passion for fantasy, but also loves anything scary, dark, and twisted. You may also find her watching Rupaul’s Drag Race, American Horror Story, The Office, Lord of the Rings, Pokemon, Sailor Moon, South Park, Studio Ghibli movies and pretty much anything Jack Black is in!

Chevy Dalman

Level 2 Rare
They/Them

Chevy is a quiet person but don’t mistake that shy guy vibe! From a young age they have been coming up with different looks and planning on how to make them happen.

Education and experimentation are two of the major reasons they started practising hair 3 years ago. Their inspiration comes the classic 70’s rockers and hippies from big shaggy mullets to the classic bowl cut. When it comes to colour, anything is possible! Fashion colours and odd placements bring them so much joy. The weirder, the better!

In Chevy’s everyday life you can catch them watching a variety of different genres of movies and shows but particularly anything spooky.

They love discussing all possibilities of the supernatural and odd occurrences. Or you can spot them binge playing Animal Crossing and improving their island.

Kimiko Watanabe

Level 2 Rare
She/Her

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. Much like the strong female heroine of your favourite romantic comedy novel, she spent years traveling independently overseas on a journey of character growth and self discovery. Only in this story, the only romance was with a piraña that made the first move. He’ll have a piece of her forever.

As an avid backpacker and past technical theatre major, she enjoys pulling inspiration from her art background and experiences around the world to create dynamic and fun looks to fit each individual client. 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.

Sabrina Reiser

Level 1 Magic
She/Her

Before becoming a hairdresser, Sabrina was an accountant for several years. What’s nerdier than loving numbers and preparing taxes? The office life ended up not being for her, although she’s watched the series multiple times.

Sabrina’s hair love came about in high school during musical theatre productions, creating looks for herself and assisting others. While on her journey to becoming a makeup artist, Sabrina discovered a passion for the world of hairdressing.

Sabrina’s favourite thing to do behind the chair is colour! Fashion colours and warm tones, such as beautiful super natural coppers and reds are her S Tier activities. Sabrina loves doing precise, medium and short cuts the most, but enjoys cutting all lengths of hair. She prides herself at making you feel comfortable while in her chair.

Her free time mostly consists of watching TV and movies with her black cat (named Sirius). The longer and more binge-able the show the better!

She also works alongside photographers, models and other creatives to do photoshoots, some of which have got her published in magazines.

When she’s not doing hair, Sabrina loves being outdoors and listening to music. In the warm months, you can find her dancing at music festivals or camping with friends rain or shine!
