Glenn

SENIOR STYLIST

Glenn first picked up his scissors in 1996 and since then has done everything from editorial work for newspapers and magazines, backstage work for fashion shows such as Viva Glam Vancouver, and colour work for five seasons of the television series The L Word. Glenn’s Vidal Sassoon training and dedication to staying current with regular education has kept a steady flow of loyal clients coming through the door. He often refers to himself as the resident barber, no doubt due to his following of men wanting a precision cut and a perfect fade. Glenn also loves colour and has become a pro at delivering a blonde that will knock your socks off.

His clients appreciate that they will receive a beautiful precision cut balanced with a killer colour, as well, they get to hang out with a very pleasant professional!

Dylan

Dylan Beatch, is the winner in Paris of the 2015 International Beauty Stylist Awards, from which he was invited to perform on stage and teach in Berlin in the spring of 2016.

I think I was put on this earth to create beauty. As no matter what I’m doing, it is beauty that seems to be the product of my labour. When I’m not behind the chair I put my creative energy into painting, writing and acting.

Over the last 5 years with BLACK2BLOND I have advanced my hairdressing skills by taking classes all over the world. Having spent 2 months total at the Vidal Sassoon academy in London and another 2 months at the La Biosthetique academy in Pforzheim Germany. And several week-long seminars in North America including LA, NY, and Toronto. I have reached a place of comfort and creativity in my craft where I feel confident in creating hair shapes and vibes that best suit my client. In the last 5 years I have advanced my hairdressing teaching career to the position of senior educator with La Biosthetique North America: mastering in classic cutting, razor cutting, product knowledge, and styling. I have won several hair-styling competitions one of which placed me #1 in the world at the Paris International Beauty Stylist Awards. And I frequent the backstage corridors of fashion events, creating looks on models for private corporate functions, large scale fashion weeks, and small private fashion events all under the name and banner of La Biosthetique. I am committed to exploring the finer workings of my craft and working with my clientele to give them hair they can live and flourish in.

Julie

Although Julie’s French Canadian culture is still important to her, she now likes to call herself a “Vancouverite” having moved here from Montreal 5 years ago. She began her salon career in 2000, transitioning from Assistant, to Receptionist, to Management, and finally to hairstyling at the Aveda Institute in 2011 where she completed a sixteen month program.

We call Julie a “day-maker” because that is what she does… she makes a person’s day with her full-face smile and enthusiasm for people and her profession.

She loves connecting with people… getting to know them and designing the best hairstyle for them as she believes that hairstyles reflect personality.

As Julie is a voracious learner, she has immersed herself in the educational opportunities provided by BLACK2BLOND and the La Biosthetique Academy.

Personally, Julie is a music nut who has fun dancing and singing. When she is away from the salon and not taking education you’ll find her hiking, or at the beach, or probably enjoying a glass of wine somewhere in town.

Daniela

Daniela’s inspiration to be a hairstylist began as a teen watching the TV series “What Not To Wear.” The show ignited her passion for art, hair, and for helping people improve their overall confidence and self image. She loves being creative with her hairstyles and colors including both long and short looks, balayage, and highlights.

Since completing her training locally in 2012, Daniela has continued to take classes with the intention of diversifying and expanding her craft.

Outside of the salon she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, doing outdoor activities, and painting.

Alexandra

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!
