Meet the Team
Robyn started this journey in 1991. She has worked from Manitoba to Ontario and developed a couple little side hustles along the way.
Ten years ago she realized a dream when she opened the doors to dishSALON. Like her…it has grown and changed over the years…matured and become something more than what it was.
What Robyn wanted to create was a space where hair stylists would feel supported. Where team work, education, and ethics came first – not the almighty dollar. Where clients could walk in, take their many hats off, relax and feel at home. She wanted her space to feel like a good friends comfy couch or kitchen table, a place to just BE.
Robyn was fortunate enough to find a team of talented, like minded stylists who just wanted to enjoy their lives, their clients, and their industry as much as she did. Learning along the way what works…as well as what doesn’t. She will be the first to tell you her mistakes were many – but her successes were too. As she steps back a little at a time from behind her chair, she finds time beside her team to help them grow, watch them lead, and step back to enjoy the chill vibe they have created together.
With 19 years in this industry, Rachel is the manager and resident “Boss Applesauce” at dishSALON! She is the glue…the long game planner. She sees what needs to happen and keeps the team hopping!
Some of her many certifications include: Devacurl® Level 3, TIGI linea© Creative Cutting and Classic Cuts, Creatively Beautiful Inc. bridal / specialty up-styling, over a dozen colour and highlight placement technique programs, as well as a trip to Mexico and the U.S to learn about colour and cutting trends. She has travelled far and wide to bring you the latest and greatest techniques!
Rachel is the perfect pepper to Robyns salt! She is quieter…lending herself to be a terrific listener. She has no troubles telling you the truth…even when it isn’t what you want to hear. She is level headed and doesn’t make promises for your hair that she can’t keep. Rachel has a passion for this industry that is tireless and enviable. A leader in our community.
Her curly hair knowledge and education is by far unmatched in our region. She is worth every minute of your time. Rachel works with you…for you…and that, our dear friends…is just the way she rolls!
