After which, Juli trained to become a Home Staging and Redesign Consultant in Toronto, where she stayed for three years. Returning to Edmonton at age 30, she started her family and resumed her hairstyling career. She's also recently tried her hand at bridal styling and home redesign.

Angie

Director of Everything and Sometimes Level Seven Stylist

With more than 23 years in, Angie has been around the block of hairdressing. Starting in 1997, she began in a mall salon (also as a cutting educator) for seven years, then took her business to her home for a few more. The opportunity for the current space came out of nowhere and here we are more than thirteen years later.

While Angie isn't behind the chair as much as she would like, there is plenty to keep her busy. With a grade school aged son, a home to care for, a business to grow and team members to coach, there isn't much time left to do hair!

She enjoys gardening and houseplants, spending time with her son and family, making plans for the salon (can you say workaholic?!), crafting, decor, house music and listening to audio books.
