Courteney has always been artistic and recently realized her passion for hair and desire to try and create new things. When she went to high school, she entered the four semester cosmetology program in 2012/2013 and completed it in her first semester of grade 12. While she was in high school she participated in hair competitions and had artwork placed to be sold in the art gallery. Since art was one of her biggest passions, she decided to continue to journey to work in a salon and further that passion.

Courteney first started working as an assistant/apprentice as bliss in 2014 and went and finished school at MC College in 2016. Courteney received her red seal license January 2017, making her a licensed stylist. Due to Courteney’s passion for doing competition hair and letting her creativity run wild, she has participated in two competitions, including Trend Vision 2017, and the Sebastian What’s Next Awards 2016 and placed as a semi-finalist, being one in sixteen chosen in her category in North America. Courteney enjoys doing creative colours and updos but also really enjoys men’s cuts. Courteney also offers weave in extensions as a service. Courteney takes every opportunity that she is able to go to hair shows and to continue her education. As well as working at Bliss, Courteney is attending at Grant Macewan University doing her Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Anthropology. In Courteney’s spare time she loves to sing, play piano, draw, paint and read.
