IVETTE | senior colourist
Ivette was born in Mexico City and has lived in Vancouver since 2008. She’s always been passionate about hair and would excitedly perform cuts and colours on friends and family before she took any formal training. When she moved to Vancouver, she trained at VCC and has been creating gorgeous balayage, highlights and foilyage ever since. If you're looking for dimensional looks with natural looking growout, she's your girl!
She’s fully trained in the QALI extension method and is ready to create hair magic with you in the chair. To kick back after a day of serving up great hair she loves a good mezcal margarita and a night in with friends.

MICHAELA | stylist
*photo coming soon*
Michaela is originally from Canmore, Alberta and moved to Vancouver in May 2022.
ADESHNA | front desk coordinator
Adeshna is our front desk coordinator / booking magician! She's the first one to welcome you to your appointment and get you an oat milk latte sparkling water. She was born in Mauritius and moved to Vancouver in 2016. Her favourite part about working at QALI is the positive vibes and getting to hang out with amazing people all day. She loves dogs and is probably going to get one soon! Her favourite drink is a dirty espresso martini. On a Saturday night you can either find her walking on the seawall or out with the girls (there’s no in between).
KEVIN | independent stylist
Kevin has been doing hair since he was a kid. Growing up in Prince George, he could never find a hairstylist to give him Winona Ryder’s pixie cut so he took the scissors into his own hands. Eventually he developed a small clientele of friends and neighbourhood moms.
When he moved to Vancouver, Kevin trained at Blanche Macdonald Centre’s Professional Hairstyling program. He’s apprenticed with award winning stylists, trained at Vidal Sassoon London, worked on many published editorial photoshoots and furthered his brand education with Kevin Murphy, Davines, Shu Uemura, L’Oréal Professional and Wella. Now Kevin splits his time behind the chair at QALI and teaching the next generation of hairstylists at John Casablancas Institute.
If you’re looking for someone to help you achieve your hair goals while talking about cool movies, interesting music, reality tv and the mysteries of the universe
