Team

Founded in May 2006, bliss hair was created by Kim Hoang and Diane Gallant. Our vision is to become a team of successful sylists. We promise to provide exceptional customer service with consistency by partnering with Vidal Sassoon Academy and Wella Professional.

We have the privelege to study at Sassoon Academy where we study precision cutting and colouring. Our salon has been lucky to have a low turn over stylist rate. This helps us keep consistency in our salon for our clients, training of apprentices and exceptional customer service.

We have all grown together not only professionally but personally with each other as well as our clients. As a team we have travelled to numerous conferences around Canada and the United States.

We strive for excellence in service and are commited to completing this by continuing our education and being role models for future stylist. We enjoy having apprentices training with us. Not only does it keep us on our toes; but also allows us to learn new techniques not being taught in the cosmetology schools.

Throughout the year in business, bliss and their stylist have taken many educational classes locally and within California to further their skills and to pursue their passion. The ladies at bliss also love to compete in national hair competitions. We have partnered up with Wella International and have competed in Wella Trend Vision, placing semi-finalist and finalists within the competitions and continuing to compete until we take it to the top!
