Nicole started her profession in Hair Styling back in 1987 at Moler School of Hair Dressing in New Westminster, BC. Nicole was the youngest student in her class and passed her course with honors, scoring 100% on her Final Exam!

Nicole then went on to work at one of the top salons in White Rock, BC, named Meisha’s. After 4 years at the salon Nicole decided to take her business mobile and has been styling, cutting and dyeing hair since!

“It all started at the age of 5 when I decided to secretly cut my 2 year old brothers hair early one morning while my parents slept. Needless to say, it wasn’t the best hair cut but I sure had a lot of fun playing hair dresser! It was from that moment that I knew I wanted to do hair!”

Hair Stylist Interview w/ Trish from Sweet Hair Trends

January 5, 2008 by · 1 Comment 

1. Name

Sweet Hair Trends, Maple Ridge, B.C. – Trish

2. Where do you currently work?

I rent a chair at a salon called Time in Eden in Maple Ridge, BC

3. How long have you been a stylist?

17 years

4. Which hairstyle is ‘Hot’ Right now?

Victoria Beckam’s

5. And ‘Not’?

Mullets

6. What hair color do you recommend for the upcoming season?

Depends what color your hair is to start with… caramel’s still popular

7. Have you ever worked your magic on a celebrity? If so who? If not, then who would be your dream client?

I wish! Matthew McConaughey, or Jennifer Aniston

8. What brand of professional hair styling aids would we find at your work station?

Sebastian- Shaper Plus Hairspray, Paul Mitchell- Super Skinny Serum, Joico- JoiGel, Rusk- Being Warped Wax

9. When someone is choosing a stylist, what is a ‘must’ they should look for?

ME! (Just kidding!) Someone who listens to them and what they want. However, it is exciting to change with the styles and not stick to the same old look for years. I suggest you let the stylist know what you want, but then also be willing to hear what they think will look good on you. You may be pleasantly surprised… you may not have thought that style could be on YOU!

10. Would you share with us a few your best hair tips or insider secrets?

- Use a mousse/gel/ liquid shine combo (on wet hair) to get volume, control, and shine when styling.

- If mousse is too drying on your hair, try a spray gel at the roots and mid-shaft, and gel or wax on the ends to hold them together.

Hairstylist Interview with Michelle Cousins

1. Name
Michelle Cousins

2. Where do you currently work?
Lewis hair team in Ipswich [check it out at www.lewishair.com]

3. How long have you been a stylist?
I have been at current job for 3 years [senior stylist] and a stylist for 2 years.

4. Which hairstyle is ‘Hot’ Right now?
I have to say the bob is still a huge style at the moment, I’m still doing loads of them, but I also think long and curly is making its way back, barrel curls, very boho. Anything with lots of layers very textured and choppy styles, long or short.

5. And ‘Not’?
Personally I think poker straight hair is not so hot now, especially for the party season we are in, its good to see more body and movement.

6. What hair color do you recommend for the upcoming season?
Colours for next season i have got my money on lots of warm brunettes,flat browns and coppers, these colours will also match the trend on the catwalk too.

7. Have you ever worked your magic on a celebrity? If so who? If not, then who would be your dream client?
I have not had the privilege of doing any celebrity’s [I'm not sure some of the Ipswich town footballers will count] although I would say I would love to get my hands on Russell Brand, Demi Moore and Sarah Jessicca Parker.
