It was such a beautiful day the last time I visited my Dad in Nova Scotia. We had a great talk that day, and I realized in that moment I didn’t have many pictures of him and I together so I snapped this one; eyes squinting and all. I’ll treasure it forever. Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, guardians, and protectors out there including my husband. We honour you and all that you sacrifice for us quietly everyday. ❤️ To those of you who find this day especially hard, I’m thinking of you.

Thank you @kyleighkeplinger for saying my new online course “is a total game changer”! 🙏. If you want to have YOUR best curls FOR LIFE, click the link in my bio☝️

We did so many things different with her routine to get this end result...we really only did slight adjustments to her cut as she’s growing it out. The biggest take away was how important it is that if you have fine hair, likely regular co-washing or using cleansers that don’t lather will not work for you long term. They build up on the hair, drag it down, and cause a film on fine hair. Occasionally if you need a quick wet down you can try a co-wash (also code for washing with conditioner). How do you solve the problem if this sounds like you? Use a clarifying shampoo like @moptophair Clarifying Rescue treatment (otherwise known as Detox shampoo) to reboot your hair and get your volume back, and then pick up a cleanser that lathers! This will do much better on your hair 💯. Click the link in my bio to shop online with me ❤️

I always want to make sure my posts are bringing you some value. Posting just to post something is not my style. In the age of social media, business owners feel so much pressure to always be delivering content. For me, posting tons of content every day is just too much. So, with every post I make, my promise is always to drop a good curly hair tip, and give you some value if you’re stopping to read; that’s just my style. Today’s tip: make sure you leave your clips in your hair until it is completely dry! The hydrogen bonds will only be completely reshaped when the hair is fully cooled. Take your clips out too early and you loose some of the very volume you tried so hard to create. Much love and balance ❤️

I'll be working in Fredericton, NB on June 22nd to June 27th. This will be my last trip east for a while. There are NO AVAILABLE APPOINTMENTS at this time.
Thank you to all my East Coasters for all your support over the years. All the laughs we had with those of you who have sat in my chair. It's been a honour serving you during the last 3.5 years travelling there; a real labour of love and I will treasure our times together always.
If you missed seeing me when I've visited in Fredericton, NB, you can still learn from me! I created my online course ESPECIALLY for those of you who have learned about me but have not been able to secure an appointment, no matter where you are in the world. Visit my website to purchase the course and also to shop in my online store. I ship all over CANADA <3 🇨🇦️

If I could have shown you how tangled this new clients hair got the minute I applied water to it, you would have not believed it. @devacurl Wash Day Wonder enabled me to cut detangling time by 75% I’m certain! If you have hard water, have stubborn tangles in the shower, have trouble getting through your hair in any way on wash day , or if your hair has trouble retaining water during the application of your styling products; you may want to invest in this product. It saved the day today in so many ways. Find it in my online store by clicking the link in my bio ☝️

Happy weekend everyone! When I have time to read, I like to learn new things (unless it’s the Outlander series and that I’ll read again and again!). This book is my latest obsession. I highly recommend it 👏🏼

Sometimes, just a little polishing goes a long way ❤️ Jessicurl Rockin’ Ringlets and @curlkeeper original were used to set her hair. We also diffused to boost the curl. Thanks for your willingness to learn Miss V! Now you know how to do your hair curly if you want to 🙌🏼

Big smiles for this mother daughter duo who spent the day with me this week. We actually used pretty much the exact same styling products for both of them as they have fine hair. We used @curlkeeper original for our main styling product because it’s lightweight and great in the humidity 🙌🏼 get it now in 🇨🇦 at

What a pleasure it was to have Miss T and her daughter in the salon today ❤️ Thank you for visiting!

Big thanks to my local Kingston store manager of @cosmoprofbeauty for hooking me up with these samples of the new DevaCurl leave in conditioner. I’ll let you know what I think about it tomorrow ;). Request your sample in the order notes of your next online order at 🙌
