IVETTE | stylist
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 vivid colours ever since!
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.
KIM | stylist
Kim is our fun sized Irish Pocket Rocket! After a botched childhood haircut at the hands of her mum, she knew she wanted to be a stylist. She joined QALI after moving from Ireland in May 2019.
She trained at the Cavan Institute in Ireland and trained in our extension method with the Loxy’s team from New Zealand. She can foil for days and loves getting creative with fun colours, cuts & upstyles. After chatting you up in her chair she might join you at the bar afterwards for some Jagerbombs on a Saturday night.
