Maia Woodburn
Hair Stylist

I sort of stumbled upon being a hairstylist....... My love for Aveda products is what got me started and as it turns out I also have a love for doing hair. I trained at the Aveda institute here in Victoria in 2001 and never looked back, I had found my career. Over the past decade I have continued to grow in all aspects of my career but especially in my ability to listen and understand what it is people are really wanting to achieve with their hair. Keeping things current is very important to me and changing things just slightly so people always feel refreshed is the challenge I love. I have a passion for people and making them happy, be it through an amazing cut, fantastic colour, or a new recipe for dinner. Being able to do all of this using products that are making a difference in the world is ideal. I am so proud of the salon and all the people who work in it, we create a welcoming environment with exceptional talent that I'm sure will exceed anyones expectations.

Lindsey Williams
Hair Stylist

Originally from Austin, TX, I began my career as a stylist after graduating from the Aveda Institute Victoria in 2007. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to attend Aveda Master Jam in Victoria and continue my education both here on the island and at the Advanced Academy in Vancouver.

My love for doing hair and the people in my chair took on new meaning when I began volunteering my styling services at Our Place in 2012 and 2013. I love being a part of an industry that creates confidence and lets people express who they are as individuals. It’s my pleasure to create a comfortable and relaxing environment while helping guests create the look they want.

Chelsea Price
Esthetician

I have been passionate about wellness and relaxation for many years, and naturally found myself interested in Spa work at the age of 21. After graduating from the Aveda Institute, I spent time working at many high end luxury resort spas. I love being able to create an escape from the craziness we call life!

I am a definite perfectionist. I love clean lines and balance. This directly translates into Esthetics. I get to take something in need of repair and create something fresh, new and beautiful. I look forward to seeing you for all your Esthetic and Massage needs!

Hair Stylist

What I'm passionate about is making people look amazing and feel gorgeous. Creating a new look to enhance your best features is the most rewarding part of what I do as a hair stylist. As well as making you look absolutely fabulous, I love getting to know you. Hearing your stories is the other best part about my job. Or, I totally understand if you just want to sit in peace without conversation. The choice is up to you because this valuable time is all about you.

Christine Phillips
Hair Stylist

Following in the footsteps of my great grandmother, and my father's parents, you could say that hairstyling is in my blood. I graduated from the Paul Da Costa Institute in 1997, and have been with Aveda ever since. Being in the Aveda network has provided me with the opportunity to attend advanced education from some of our industries top ranked professionals in hair cutting, hair colour, make-up and up do's. And even attending Aveda's prestigious Master Jam(s) and Congress in Minneapolis.

Because every guest that sits in my chair is unique and special, my goal is to create a calm and comfortable experience where we work together to create a style that best suits your hair, styling experience and lifestyle. Building an individual relationship with each guest leads to a positive experience and a creative outcome. There is nothing better than making someone feel like a million bucks!!

Hair Stylist

I started hair school in 2003 at the Advanced School of Hair Design in Victoria, after deciding at age 4 that I wanted to be a hair stylist. Once completed, I obtained my red seal license in Toronto while studying makeup at SOMA and George Brown. Continuing to educate myself at Vidal Sassoon in California and a multitude of institutes in New York, I have worked with Aveda the past seven years. I find Aveda helps bring out my clients natural beauty and best features. I love making a difference in peoples day with the pampering and change they need.
