Biography

              Isabelle was born and raised in small French Canadian town

in Quebec called called L’Isle–Verte 

Professional career:

After learning her craft at  l’École de coiffure Lemieux in Québec city, Isabelle  decided  to moved to Saskatoon, Sk, where she began her profession as a hairstylist. She worked at Shear Talent and assisted Elizabeth Allen, and worked part-time as a hair stylist.

A few years later, she went on to work at Herr Baran on Broadway for John Cook. This is where she really found herself as a hairstylist. 

 

She really wanted to learn more about the business aspect of hair dressing and a few years later, she decided to open her hairdressing salon called Absalom Hair and Beauty Center in Saskatoon. Owning the salon for eight years was very rewarding for her.  She decided to sell her salon to focus more Artistic on her client and family. Isabelle has shared her knowledge educating hairstylists across Canada while working over the years for two different hair care companies. 

 

Adding to her resume, she taught cosmetology at Eveline Charles (EC) Academy in Edmonton, where she enjoyed sharing her passion and knowledge to her students. Isabelle was also very fortunate to have been chosen to be a part of the Alberta Apprenticeship Committee for marking hairstylist practical examinations. 

 

After relocating to Ottawa with her family, Isabelle worked for a few years and decided that it was time to open a studio again now today known as

 IF Hair Inc. IF Hair pro is where she does consulting, training, and coaching.

She specializes in haircutting, hair colouring, and enjoys going above and beyond to personalize each style to fit the customer's looks.
