Colin comes from the Hotel and Restaurant Management industry with guest services being a high priority for Colin within his career. After 15 years in that industry, Colin was looking for change, both in life and his career. He began to travel, making New Zealand home. Opportunity soon fell in his lap when he met a man by the name of Len Keith, a well-known hair stylist. This opportunity opened his eyes to an industry that was unimaginable to him, and was just the change he was looking for. After graduating from the Aveda Institute and Academy programs, Colin made his way to London, England, where trends begin and inspiration is abundant. During his time there, he fed his hunger for knowledge, and cultivated his skills both in hair, and in business. Upon his arrival home Colin, worked for Civello Salon and Spa as a senior hairstylist for nearly 7 years in the heart of Toronto. Building a clientele, Colin fuelled his ambitions to one day own his own salon. After years of hard work and dedication, Colin made his dreams a reality by opening “My Salon On Richmond” in the lower east side of the City. Using everything he’s learned, Colin can truly say that he offers exceptional service with amazing work behind it.

Born and raised in Mississauga, Kirby decided it was time to move into the big city and start his career in hairstyling. Kirby grew up loving to draw and he’s a visually creative thinker when it come to fashion and design. He blindly decided to go into hairstyling at the Aveda Institute in 2020 thinking he will “try it out”- it was the best decision he’s ever made!
Shortly after enrolling into hair school he realized his passion in hairstyling lies in colour- from Highlights, Balayage to Colour corrections. Today, Kirby is a dualist in both cut and colour but you will truly see his creativity through his colour services. You can see his work on his Instagram where he’s constantly learning the latest trends in hair colouring.
Have a hair concern? Don’t be afraid to ask- because Kirby loves to educate and believes heavily in the product he uses and wants you to take care of your hair as much as he takes cares of yours. Kirby looks forward to seeing you in the future!
