Krista started with The Body Bar as a teenager back in 2007 working with Gillian as an apprentice and working her way up to a stylist. She’s had many opportunities to travel and train with Gillian and has been an exemplary student. She is an amazing stylist and colourist that takes the time to listen to her guest and give them an incredible experience and service. She has been a joy to watch grow over the years and become the stylist she is today. We can’t wait to see what else she accomplishes in our craft.

Gillian started her apprenticeship in 1981 and then was accepted to Bruno’s School of Hair Design to graduate with honors. Attends education multiple times throughout the year and has graduated Vidal Sassoon Advanced Education, as well as her P.H.D with Eufora.
After working in the city for many years and having the privilege of being taught by some fabulous stylists she had a dream of opening a salon in Orangeville, bringing the city edge and education but in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Having her own salon has given her the opportunity to mentor young stylists as she was mentored. She loves upgrading her education, loves attending shows and competitions. Watching a stylist progress gives her a huge amount of satisfaction and pride. Several have gone on to open their own salons with Gillian’s blessing and encouragement.
Gillian cares about her clients to the nth degree. From looking after a house bound client to making sure a client could have clean hair after cancer surgery, Gillian takes her passion seriously. She’s had many opportunities to train internationally, including Barcelona, Venice, as well as New York, California, Boston, and of course Toronto and Montreal in order to expand her education and bringing new trends to her craft. She loves to share her knowledge with her peers, team members and her guests.
