I grew up in the lower mainland and during my teens my parents decided to move us to Alberta; this is where I attended hairdressing school. After three years we moved back to BC, where my hair career took off. I worked in Richmond in the 80’s which was so much fun. I was also fortunate enough to compete in two hair competitions. In styling I received Novice 2nd and in cutting Novice 1st.  I have had many years of continuing hair education and recently finished The BC Provincial Instructors Diploma Program. My inspiration comes from magazines and TV, I also love to follow Tabatha Coffee (Australia) and Trevor Sorbie (London) on Twitter. Okay let’s face it ... my favorite product changes monthly, so this month it is the Dry Remedy Oil and Smooth Infusion Glossing Straighter. The combination of the two make your hair shiny and silky smooth with or without curls. The best part of my job is making my guest look and feel beautiful...when their hair looks fantastic and they love it, I feel great and that is the best feeling. Being part of such a great team is another great part of my job we are one big family supporting and encouraging one another at work and life. Something Random about my personal life, while on a holiday in Hawaii I got the best possible souvenir ever ... I met my husband :)

I began my career in the beauty industry in 2008 by completing my training in Vancouver. After working on the mainland for several years I moved home to the island and found Aveda. My favorite product is the Pure Abundance Volumizing Tonic, it creates effortless body with an organic aloe base. The best thing about my job is making people feel beautiful. I love being able to take a person’s skin tone and facial structure and create a customized style for them to look and feel their personal best. I get to connect and share laughs all day with people, how much better does it get? Also, as a vegetarian for over 20 years I love that Aveda is a naturally derived product and does absolutely no animal testing.

Intermediate Stylist
I have lived on the island since I was only a year old and I love it! I spent all of my school years here and went to VIU for hairdressing. Ever since getting my very first hair cut I wanted to become a hair stylist. I was always doing my friends and families hair in my spare time but now I get paid to do what I love!

My favorite Aveda product is the Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair because it is such a lightweight treatment to protect and smooth the hair.

The most rewarding part of my job is knowing I have made someone feel good about themselves and to be able to show them the potential they didn't see before sitting in my chair.

Fun fact: I danced for 15 years and I can do the most perfect ballet hair bun!  
Amanda .
Intermediate Stylist
I've grown up on this beautiful island, born and raised in Nanaimo! I went to the Aveda Institute of Victoria for cosmetology, and graduated in July 2016. After getting educated through Aveda, I didn't want to work with anything else. Nanaimo is always home for me so when I came back, I headed straight to Breze. I'm very happy to be starting my career with Breze and all the wonderful people that surround me at work!

I'm very passionate about colour, cuts, and styling hair. My favourite part about being a stylist is making guests feel beautiful and I love when I can really pin point a colour that a guest is looking for. Aveda has an incredible colour line to work with because it's so customizable. My favourite product lines are the Damage Remedy line, as well as the Pure Abundance line.

If anyone tells you your hair is too big, get rid of them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life!

Born and raised in the small town of Port Alberni, I've always had a passion for the industry. Growing up with a hair stylist as a mother, I was constantly changing my hair, from perms to short bobs - I did it all.

I took my training at Tru Spa Institute of Aesthetics in July of 2015 and have never looked back. After graduating I found myself an offer of employment at Breze Salon and Day Spa and I was ecstatic to become a part of such a wonderful team!

It is always extremely rewarding when I get the opportunity to help a guest feel their best whether it be from a simple eyebrow wax or a relaxing full body massage. The smile that is left on their face is what I absolutely love about my job.

Esthetician
I grew up on the mainland and finished my high school on the island.  I love the calmer atmosphere and consider Nanaimo my home.  When I'm not working, you will find me in the river or lake during the summer and skiing in the winter.
I love being an esthetican here at Breze.  Every day I get to help my guests feel good, feel pretty and feel happy.  The Aveda brand is something I believe in; with their great products and all it does helping communities around the world.  Rosemary-Mint is my go to scent.  Relaxing, soothing and uplifting all in one.
I like every aspect of providing services; from a full body massage to an eyebrow wax.  I have recently started specializing in eyebrows; especially microblading.  It is such a unique process, using a fine blade to create the appearance of more hair with results lasting up to two years. It is truly phenomenal to give someone a pair of "wake up ready" brows!

Esthetician
I was born and raised on Vancouver Island; I am proud to say that I am an Island girl.

I am new to the Esthetics Industry and absolutely love it!  Previously I had taken a makeup artistry program and also worked in the cosmetics for two years.  Once I started the Esthetics program I knew this was the industry for me.
It is very rewarding to have the opportunity to make someone look and feel their best when they come to Breze.

My favorite Aveda product is the Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil.  I love the how it restores moisture back into your hair and the smell is also amazing.

On my down time I enjoy scrap-booking, photography and cuddling up to my two cats.  I also love watching movies and cooking delicious meals.
Kayley .
Esthetician
Originally from Powell River I grew up in my two aunt’s hair studio, so ever since I was young I have been immersed in this industry. I chose esthetics to compliment the side that I am passionate about. I love the immediate results I can provide for my guests to make them look and feel their best. 

My favorite products are the Tourmaline Charged Radiance Fluid because of the beautiful glow and smoothness it gives the skin. Also the Brilliant Damage Control spray because it makes hair soft and shiny and smells amazing! 

Since moving here to be with family I’ve been enjoying quality time with them and experiencing Nanaimo first hand. Something not a lot of people know about me is that I am half Maltese because of my light hair and eyes and traditional Maltese people have dark hair, eyes and olive skin tone. But I just take after my Canadian father.

Karla .
Esthetician
Originally from Prince George I lived in Kelowna for a few years when I did my esthetics training at Marvel College. I’ve been an esthetician for 8 years and have been here at Breze for five of those. 

My favorite part of this job is socializing and making people feel good at the same time. A few of my favorite products are all things Damage Remedy because it makes my hair soft, shiny and healthy. Also the entire Stress Fix line because it smells delicious. 

My life revolves around my Boston Terrier/Chihuahua cross Maverick but I also love hot yoga and going for walks.

Lead Esthetician / Spa A.C.E
At the age of 11, I began working in our family salon, answering phones; sweeping hair, etc…  My Stepfather was an artistic Stylist, Salon owner, & Beauty School Owner/Director. He encouraged my mother to explore Esthetics and she became a pioneer & mentor of European techniques and therapies, in the Pacific Northwest I took my training as part of my High School credits and became licensed in Barber Styling, Cosmetology & Esthetics shortly after my High School graduation. As a successful and talented Barber/ Stylist I enjoyed the creativity and diversity of hair, but ultimately wanted to pamper and nurture more. This led me to focus on Spa & Esthetics as a Spa therapist and Consultant, specializing in Aroma & Thalassotherapies. I grew up in an exciting and ever changing environment that has evolved from a beauty industry focus, to one of wellness…

For over 30 years I have stayed passionate about each client, experience, and opportunity for learning & growth… I do not consider this work, and still become more energized at the end of each day and after sharing with each guest. I am constantly being asked what I love most and can honestly say that I enjoy it all! The ability to share comfort and well-being with every service towards a positive Holistic experience is amazing! As a member of the Breze Spa Team, the past 11 years has also given me the opportunity to evolve into my role as Lead Esthetician, & as a Spa Aveda Certified Educator within the Aveda/Collega Education network. I whole-heartedly believe in the Aveda experience and company as it embraces and supports the ethics, and high standards of excellence in which I live my life, while contributing to the health and well-being of humanity.
