I have had the pleasure of working with Renae over the past few months and I can honestly say that she’s amazing at what she does.
Renae has been a hairstylist for the past 8 years. She was inspired by her mother who is also a hairstylist and encouraged by her dad who was her first client, once a week when she was little he allowed her to tie his hair up in tiny elastics and style away!
In response to the question about her favourite thing about hair styling here’s what she had to say!
My favourite thing about hair styling, well I have two. I LOVE my clients, I know that sounds cliché to say, but I am really honoured my clients spend time with me and are as wonderful as they are. I look forward to the next day and getting up for work. I know hair seems like a superficial thing but I can feel the difference in confidence my clients have when they leave my chair, I really try to make the experience whatever they need. Maybe some quiet time for a new mom, a vent session from a stressful day, or a reset from a bad time. The second is the creative freedom it allows me. Every day is different with different challenges. I love to be able to see something in my head, and execute it creatively.
Renae is in high demand around Toronto as a hairstylist to the stars, brides and her loyal clients but when she has some time off she enjoys spending time with her family and her animals! She tries to get out to ride her horse about once a week!
With a talent like hers it’s no wonder she feels that she has the best job in the world!
I really believe that I have the best job in the world. I am in love with it. I feel very happy with where I am in life and have found that the trick, so far at least, is to surround myself with positive, strong role models. I am inspired by the inner strength we all possess, and even though my downfall maybe never having enough hours in the day, I feel the most strength when I am working, or with my family.
It’s such a pleasure being able to work with somebody as wonderful as Renae and who is so passionate about what she does!
