Stephane is one of a kind. I love being his client! He combines intuition, and masterful technique. These days I swim every day in the ocean. I let my hair air dry, and it still looks fantastic. How many cuts can achieve that? Amazing

Chase, Sarah

My first tint with Stephane and I am extremely satisfied. He managed to gloss over my damaged hair with the right products. He has deep insight and understanding of hair, colour, and its affects and gave me some valuable suggestions. I am very happy with my hair; will be back!

Bhamra, Anu

So happy with my highlights, and really think Stephane is just the best! He is so responsive, caring, attendant to all the details, and I just cannot imagine a better service!

Alexandra

SENIOR STYLIST

Hi, my name is Alexandra. I am an ITA Certified Hairstylist and have been in the hair industry for 5 years. I am passionate about giving my clients the most professional hair advice and current cutting edge, sophisticated hair styles.

I graduated from VCC in the Hairstylist program and am passionate about my career and focus my energy on furthering my hair-care education. Before joining the BLACK2BLOND team I worked in a high-end salon for four years receiving personal training from a Vidal Sassoon educator.

Since 2016, I have been a Brand Ambassador for La Biosthetique which has allowed me to take extensive and advanced hair courses at the La Biosthetique Academy, including Essential and Advanced Colour, Art of Foiling, Blonde Toning, Colour Correction and Balayage.

When time permits, I enjoy volunteering in events like, Vancouver Fashion Week and Eco Fashion Week. When I don’t have my hands in hair, I love spending time with family and friends. My favourite season is fall, not too hot, not too cold. I have trained in Martial arts for 12.5 years and received my First Degree black belt in 2011. Keeping fit and eating healthy is my mantra.

I welcome you to come see me as I am accepting new clients. Simply choose a time that works best for you and let me help you achieve a cut and/or colour that will make you look and feel your best!

Alexandra is a wonderful hair stylist with a great personality. She has a very positive attitude and clearly loves her job and cuts curly hair to a perfection. She is definitely an asset to the salon.

Thomas, Lynn

I am new to Alexandra and I must say she put me at ease during my appointment. She took extra time to explain her process before she started cutting my hair. She did an amazing job and really listened to me as well. She also rebalanced and reshaped my bangs. Not just anyone can cut bangs but she sure can! So excited to go back for my colouring appt.

Firth, Renee

Alexandra not only listens to what the
client wants, she thinks about it and
improves on it.

My hair and I couldn’t be in better hands!!! Thank you soooo much, Diane!!!

Stacey C

Wow!! Completely revitalized my hair. I am trying to go grey gracefully and the highlights I had in my hair looked almost yellow. The chemicals made my hair so frizzy, dry and just gross. Diane selected the colour and gloss and I feel like I did in my twenties with healthy, gorgeous hair!!
