Kanchana

Hairstylist

My passion for hairstyling dawned on me at the tender age of 13 where I witnessed a beautiful bride being dressed up. The stylist that was shaping her hair, worked with long controlled, beautiful strokes. At that moment I knew that someday I would want to pursue a career in hair styling.  

I never forgot to keep up with the latest trends and styles that kept propping up. I constantly kept looking at ways to get into hairstyling and always pushed me to learn more about the profession.

I love learning about coloring hair and always keep up with stylists that use new, innovative ways to do so. In my spare time, I would always practice cutting and coloring and eventually, I learned to specialize in Balayage and Ombre styles.

My transition to the Cualtzin Salon is undoubtedly the best decision I have made thus far. It has opened doors for me to expand my expertise and gain more knowledge about the field.
