Though fairly new to Canada, UK native and owner of UK Trendz, Jacqui, is a veteran when it comes to the salon scene. The Toni&Guy–trained stylist brings 25 years of experience to the styling chair, where she adeptly cuts, colours, and retexturizes hair of all ethnicities. She uses her training in African and Caribbean locks to create natural-looking weaves and extensions and irons out curls and wrinkles in time with the Affirm Creme Relaxer and Keratin Straightening systems. Jacqui also cares for below-the-neck needs with traditional and Shellac mani-pedis as well as waxing treatments for both men and women.
Becoming Hair Studio's seasoned stylists start each women's signature design and finish with a personal consultation to lay out a plan for individual hair-goals. Bounce and shine are renewed as shears snip away old growth and a blow-dry uplifts freshly lopped locks, readying your head for a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. While cultivating a chic, modern interior, the studio remains 100 per cent green, allowing clients to strut new looks without leaving a noticeable carbon footprint. Online styling tips help re-create looks at home, and Becoming's iPhone App helps snag appointments on the go. Additional charges may apply for extra-long hair.

Skin-sations owner Lidia McGuire has a clear goal: to improve the well-being of each client that walks through her doors.
