Amy Cathersides


New Talent Stylist


Originally hailing from the UK, Amy swapped the rolling hills of England for the big mountains of BC. After following her love for snowboarding, Amy craved a new challenge; graduating from the Aveda Advanced Academy in Vancouver in 2014, she has immersed herself in her passion for hair as a creative outlet. Whilst she may be new talent, Amy loves to be challenged and wants to grow alongside her guests – working with them to create stunning looks working in perfect flow with their varying lifestyles and is inspired daily by the beauty and people around her.

Amy joined the team here in May 2016 to further develop her learnings by surrounding herself with almost 100 years of combined hair experience to mentor her on her hair journey.
