I always had an entrepreneurial spirit, my first business was re-selling candy from my locker in junior high school. The PAC caught on and shut me down and confiscated all my inventory and profits. I guess it’s a good idea to check out the demographic before opening.
Meanwhile while away from school I was also working in the beauty business I started out helping my step sister in her salon during summers. After relocating to British Columbia I quickly found a salon to work at after school and on weekends, I started apprenticing in 2004 and in 2006 I completed my Nail Technician course. After working in the beauty industry for six years, I decided to purchase the Rainbow Room Hair Salon, we developed the esthetics side of the business and expanded in 2012.
My main passion is being creative! Whether it’s hair, nail art or sewing I’m always doing some sort of project. The best part of this industry is that its ever changing, the looks, the trends, the colours and the cuts. I’m always updating my education to master the new techniques.
Permanent Make-up Artist
Hi everyone, here is a bit of background on your soon to be, beauty advisor Patricia. I started in the beauty industry 30 years ago working as a rep for alloett cosmetics when I found a great love for makeup artistry. Soon after when babies came along, I added photography to my list of passions. I became a single parent, when my children where young, and had the realization that makeup & photography where not enough to create a sufficient income for my family. In 2000, I dove in and started taking every course in the beauty industry I could think of. Nails, Permanent makeup, lash extension, teeth whitening, dermal needling, lash lifts, facials, waxing, massage is a few of the services in which I have studied and am certified in. In 2007, I opened my first shop called Cream & Sugar. It was in Powell River, and it became a huge success! In 2014, with my children successful and living in the lower mainland, I found myself missing them immensely and needed a new adventure… So I was off to Vancouver to be closer to my children and now grandchildren.
My entire life I have always had a passion for hair. Immediately out of highschool I started working at the Rainbow Room Hair Salon as an apprentice, I then attended John Casablancas to complete my apprenticeship. I enjoy coming to work and seeing my regular guests, doing lots of blonde foils and cutting inverted bob’s. I’m currently accepting new clients and would love to customize a look for you!
I grew up and still live in Pender Harbour B.C. After graduating highschool I attended John Casablancas for the body spa program in 2013. I have worked at the Painted Boat Resort and Spa for the last four years and I realized I have a true passion for massage. In 2016 i decided to start upgrading my education and took a deep tissue massage course. I recently have started working towards becoming a certified my at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. I look forward to meeting new clients and existing clients and would love for you to come see me at the salon.
Stylist/ Lash Technician/ Esthetician
I grew up on a farm in Sechelt where my parents taught me about hard work. My grandma lived on the property ase well and we would spend the entire summer breaks road tripping and camping. My first career was in banking, after the markets crashed in 2008 i quickly realized that was not the business I wanted to continue in. After moving to Vancouver I attended John Casablancas school for esthetics. I also knew that I had a passion for hair styling so when i completed the esthetics program I attended Holly’s Hair School in North Vancouver.
I have a passion for education and I am constantly upgrading to learn the new trends and techniques. I love doing creative colour and transforming your look.
