Ryan

Ryan is the lead Stylist and Owner of Black Sheep Hair. With over 21 years of experience working as a stylist and a color specialist. I trained as a cutting specialist through the Aveda Academy, Color specialist and Technical educator for AlfaParf Milano in Alberta, Canada when I was a junior stylist.

As a stylist I'm always searching for cool new techniques in hair and always looking for new videos through online hair education platforms. I'm always playing with Mannequins at home, trying out new styles and techniques. Hair never ends for me.

I have traveled throughout Canada, Central and South America. Having spent 7 years in Central and South America, I'm very accustomed to different types and textures of hair. From curly to straight, and thick to thin, and every texture and density of hair in-between.

I specialize in correcting hair. It can be either, restoring the hairs health and integrity, or correcting color disasters.

My methods are not always conventional and mainstream. I work uniquely with each and every client and hair type. I always tell my clients judge the end result, not how we get there.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“I had a great experience with Ryan. He really took the time and care to make my hair look great despite vague direction on my end. I love the end result and I'll definitely be back!”

“Kait caters to all my needs. I’ve been going to her for a while now so she knows my likes and dislikes. Her suggestions are always spot on! I would commute 1.5hr just to have to her and nobody else. :)”

Nicole

Hey I'm Nicole and I've been working behind the chair for seven years. Ever since I stepped foot in a salon I knew I had to be a part of this insanely expressive counter culture. Hailing from a small town, I came to Toronto to be surrounded by people who don't hesitate to be themselves and to experience all that a city this size can offer. I'm obsessed with blondes and highly unnatural pastel and vibrant shades, and cuts that make you feel at home in your body. I have a ton of hobbies that lend me my inspiration; it's not uncommon for me to ignore Pinterest hair pages and instead pull a colour palette from an abstract painting or a ball of yarn.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“I found the entire team very friendly and easy to talk to....the atmosphere is very relaxing and pleasant and I received the best cut I've ever had...love this place and will continue to visit Black Sheep Hair for all my hair care needs....You guys ROCK!!!”
