Tara Sebastianis

Senior Stylist/Salon Administrator

Tara moved from home at the age of 12 to be accepted to a professional ballet school in the Toronto area for her high school years.

She brings this exceptional artistic background to hair design.

She is a graduate of Marvel Hair Design College, Canada’s leader in Hair & Esthetics Training. She has had the opportunity to travel to different countries to learn the latest cutting, coloring and styling techniques. She has had the honor of attending class with some of the most highly respected international leaders and innovators in the hairdressing profession; Damien Carney, Sue Pemberton, and Vivienne MacKinder, and she continues to learn, grow, and study her profession to provide the latest trends and fashion for her clients.
