I've always known I wanted to be my own boss.
Having the freedom to create how, and when, that's most convenient for me and my clients. I am so excited to finally have this opportunity and to welcome you to Lighten Up!
I can't wait to welcome you to my chair and help you achieve the vision you have for your hair.
Balayage, other Blonding Services and Bright Vivid Colours is what I would say I specialize in most. However I do love a good haircut and doing other colours too! I am thrilled to finally have a space to create these looks, and hey, maybe your hair journey will even end up on my Social Medias!
(With your permission of course).
Having a background in Theater and always having loved the creative side of life, I am so happy I found my way into this industry. You get to meet all kinds of people, hear all kinds of stories, and most importantly, make people feel really good.
It is such a creative, fun and ever changing career, and I am so happy I get to share it with you!
I also enjoy doing looks for film, photoshoots, for weddings and more, so please contact me for information regarding any of those services.
If you're interested in my work, please check out my social media, and don't hesitate to contact me today to get your hair journey started!
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.
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!
