KATIE GRASDAL

Hi! I am Katherine best known as Katie. A creatively driven Master Stylist, Proactive Educator, Entrepreneur, Shopper, and Dog Lover!
My journey in this industry started in 2003 and continues behind the chair; As of 2011, I partnered with Revlon Pro which propels me to master my craft in Styling and educating, and allows me to travel and share my knowledge and expertise around North America. Collaboration has been pivotal in my recent successes, allowing me to co-write darling bridal education classes, which have been used since 2017, and co-opening Salon Social in 2018. I specialize in colour correction, up styling, and educating!
Constantly changing techniques and trends allow for me to cultivate my talents. The best part of working in this industry is that each day is never the same, it is Transformative! Witnessing the growth of other stylists who participate in my classes, and who share my love of this industry, is why I do this.I love what I do.
I hope you all love Salon Social as much as I do, we hope to see you soon!

SIMONE PETTIGREW

I am the “hair artist” known as Simone. I am a driven Master Stylist, Educator, and Entrepreneur. I specialize in curly hair, men and women’s hair, colour correction, balayage, session and bridal styling.

The hair and beauty industry is mesmerizing, and with the constantly changing trends, it has literally kept me on my feet since 2003! I am committed to fostering industry knowledge, educating, supporting, helping, and guiding others towards their passion in this line of work. Partnering with Revlon Pro has allowed me to travel the world, and keep up with current trends and techniques. Collaborating has led me to co-write darling bridal education classes, which have been used since 2017; as well as discussions about a unique, comfortable, and enjoyable atmosphere for our clients; which ushered the opening of Salon Social in 2018. I am honoured to have been a finalist for Contessa in 2016, 1 of the top 3 in Canada for Style Masters 2016, and Alberta Hair Stylist finalist 2019. My successes are a direct result of hard work, dedication and healthy teamwork. I will continue to challenge myself, and strive for excellence.

Creating great hair and a unique experience for my clients, and empowering those in my field is why I love what I do!

PAULETTE

Hi, I am Paulette.

I am a committed, passionate, and hardworking stylist. I specialize in colour. I’ve always known that I was meant to be in this industry. My career started when I was six years old, and every doll I owned was at my mercy!
In 2001, I made my childhood goal official. Since then, I have worked in a number of high end salons, and later opened up my home salon after the birth of my identical twin daughters, which allowed me to continue what I love to do. Now that they are older, I am ready to reintegrate into the salon environment, where I can work alongside others. This industry is constantly changing, and I enjoy learning, which will allow me to stay focused, and on top of current trends.
Creating an amazing experience for my clients is why I love doing hair!

Apprentice

Hi, I am Anabelle! I am currently apprenticing with Katie and Simone. I started doing blowouts on my mom when I was 11, driven to make her look and feel her best. I love that this industry allows for many forms of expression. I am passionate about gaining experience doing voluminous, and bouncy blowouts, curly hair, balayage, and foils. My goal is to make you look your best. When you are happy, my heart is full! You can follow me on Instagram @hairbeauty.anabelle_

MEHA

HI everyone, i am the original salon dog! Then Mabel came in and wow she has way to much energy. I love to chill out by my mom’s (aka Simone) chair and watch her do her magic.
There is nothing better then a cozy blanket so I can curl up and chew my bone

MABEL

HI, coming to the salon is my most favourite thing in the world. I love everyone! The best thing is when someone comes in with shoe laces! 
I am only a puppy so often i get put in my play pen so i don’t drive my mom (aka Katie) nuts​
Hope to untie your shoe laces soon!
