Beauty Pros

Andrea Omran – Chatters Waterloo Conestoga

What is your role, where do you work and how long have you been there? I am a stylist I work at the Chatters in Waterloo Ontario. I have worked here for six months.

What is your favorite product? My favourite product right now would be the Redken Frizz Dismiss because it works well for most hair types. It takes away the frizz while adding shine, so it is an all-around excellent product.

Favorite hair trend I’m still in love with the balayage. You can do a subtle balayage, and yet there are several different techniques you can do with one style trend. It lowers the maintenance for the clients which is a huge bonus for them.

If you could style a celebrity who would it be? Just because he's super cute I would probably do Leonardo DiCaprio.

What does style happy mean to you? For me, I think it's having the client feeling good about themselves but leaving feeling even better. As stylists, we are bringing out the client’s inner beauty and making them feel more confident.

What are your thoughts on social media building your career? It’s a super great career builder, it's just like a portfolio. I am building a clientele from people following me on Instagram. Andrea0h.hairdesign is where you can find me!

Cool hashtags you either follow or use? I use #stylehappy #lovecolour #loveyourself. Anything uplifting or that deals with the style I am doing.

Where do you get inspiration from? I love Pinterest, I have always used Pinterest to see what's out there and what's new. Sometimes I get it with clothing or even movies. The idea just pops onto my head.

What skill would you like to master in hair styling? I would want to master braiding… it's wild what people can do. Braiding looks so good in up-dos or quick-dos.

What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend? I love to have the weekend off to relax with my boyfriend. It’s just nice to do nothing.
