Hi! I'm Megan!

Welcome to Lighten Up Hair Boutique.


I have been in the hair industry for 8 years and I am a fully licensed hairstylist. Originally from Thunder Bay I moved to Ottawa for something new, and after many years I am very excited to be my own boss!


I have completed numerous colouring, cutting and styling courses from Redken, Label M and Kerastase. Continued education is important to me and allows me to be up to date on the latest hair trends and techniques. I also love educating my clients about their hair,  whether it's simple styling questions or the science behind a chemical service, feel free to ask me.

Balayage is a main interest of mine. I like that I can customize it for each individual client. I love being able create a cut and or colour for my clients that suits their needs. I am understanding to those with trichotillomania, and hope to be as helpful as possible in ways to cut/style your hair that makes you feel the most comfortable.


If I'm not talking about hair, you'll probably hear me talking about food (Ottawa has so many good restaurants), podcasts, my newest Netflix find or animals. 


Hope to see you at Lighten Up soon!
