A VIU Cosmetology alumni, Samantha has worked as a hairstylist and barber since 2014. Before devoting her skills to barbering full time, Samantha spent four years specializing in long textured cuts and grey blending colour techniques while managing her family’s small salon which won three Reader’s Choice awards. After five years of barbering, she is excited to return to the salon environment by joining the Studio 1313 team. Samantha is looking forward to returning to her hair styling specialties, while sharing her honed skills in short haircuts and styling. Styles that enhance her client’s best facial features with special consideration to their personal preferences and daily rituals so that every time they leave the studio they are able to replicate those salon-perfect results at home.
