HAIR EXTENSION EXPERTS
Our team takes great pride in customizing services that get at the heart of what each guest wants and needs. With creativity, experience and intensive training, our Emme Hair team transforms even the smallest moments into life changing experiences. We offer 4 levels and an incredible collection of talented and highly skilled hairstylists that specialize in hair extension makeovers.
Emme Hair hairstylists work on a level system that is determined by self-identified goals, client demand, skill and education. Each level has specific criteria and in order to promote, each hairstylist must achieve certain goals and maintain them. As your hairstylist gets promoted, you will see a small increase in the costs of services. This is reflective of the investment they have made in their professional development.
Which Hairstylist would you like to meet?
Veronica is one of our salon directors. She began her career as a hairstylist in 2004 and very quickly made the salon her second home. When she is not busy leading her team at the salon, she is enjoying time with her husband Mark and their 2 beautiful children Kingston and Naomi. She began specializing in hair extensions in 2007 when her sister Maria lost most of her hair after pregnancy due to hormonal imbalance. This led Veronica and Maria to launching their own line of hair extensions in 2015 called Emme Hair. They wanted to present tools which would empower people to create their most beautiful selves. Veronica opened the doors to her first salon in 2016 and outgrew the space immediately which led to the birth of her Kitsilano location Emme Hair in 2018. Veronica’s passion for mentoring and teaching other hairstylists is what keeps her motivated to continue to expand her team at Emme Hair. She is a very strong technical cutter and her colour skills are always evolving with the trends. These are the skills that Veronica passes on to her motivated team of hairstylists. Veronica believes that the integrity of hair is always of paramount importance. She encourages her team to recommend hair styles and hair extension products that enable their guests to reach their hair goals and are easy to manage at home. Veronica especially enjoys teaching her team how to create long, gorgeous, and natural looking hairstyles using their own line of hair extensions, Emme Hair. She ensures that Emme Hair offers the perfect salon experience from beginning to end to each and every guest. She truly believes that it’s every woman’s right to create her own beauty and get pampered every day of the week!
