She and Stephanie go way back. After spending years working in salons together, starting businesses and families, Tasha came to White Rock in June 2010 to re-unite with Stephanie and join the all-star team at Mystique.
Tasha’s passion is to make each client feel incredible in her chair and she has been doing just that for over a decade now.

Her expertise in free-hand work, such as Hair Painting and balayage, and her confidence in make-up can be confirmed by her ecstatic clients. Nicole had a once in a lifetime opportunity to work backstage at Paris Fashion week with the incredible artistic team from Labisothetique in October 2018.

She’s always ready with smart homecare tips to up-keep those great styles!

Erin had the opportunity to teach alongside Stephanie in Nepal in March of 2018 and continues to be a highlight of her hairdressing career thus far.
Have you met Jessa yet? Enthusiastic, outgoing, driven, team player are just some of the ways we would describe her.
Jessa completed our in house Protégé Program alongside Brandie, where she excelled in advancing her styling and colouring skill sets. Jessa graduated hair school in early 2015 and started with Mystique in Sept 2016. Jessa prides herself on being an Extension Specialist where she takes the utmost care in her guests’ natural hair’s health, and making the extensions virtually undetectable. From Hairpainting to smoothing treatments Jessa’s artistry excels with her guests of all ages. If you haven’t experienced a scalp massage and bombshell blowout from Jessa, make sure you book in soon! Jessa is a breath of fresh air at Mystique and is our highly motivated-no excuses-go-getter with a side of wit.
Jessa loves the family atmosphere within Mystique and strives to make every day in the salon a fun experience for everyone.

Having an eye for blondes, Hailey is fast growing her clientele with White Rock beach babes. Her love for hair and attention to detail with a splash of “perfectionism- said in the kindest way possible”. Hailey especially loves the details of Hairpainting, and how you can customize each look to her guests wants and needs. Hailey started as a Protege in 2017 and earned herself a chair in 2018 and has been increasing not only her guest list, but her skills ever since. Committed to continual education and growth both personally and professionally we have no doubt that Hailey’s work will continue to impress us for years to come.
The unique working environment drew Hailey back in when she did her work experience in 2014. Excited to work in an uplifting environment that brings out the best in each other, Hailey waited until all of life aligned to apply at Mystique after her daughter was born. One of Hailey’s favorite parts of her job is hearing her clients individual stories that you will often hear her wowing as shes follows along. Hailey loves nature, bald eagles and the beach-side vibe Mystique enjoys daily.
Since starting hair school in high school, Madi had a head start on her career coming to us as an assistant in 2017. Madi has proved very quickly she was in it for the long haul and earned a place in Mystique’s Protege program. Having the most amount of time in Mystique assisting, Madi has made a name for herself as our shy yet sassy hustler. If you have been into Mystique lately you have probably noticed she’s working more behind the chair. Yes, she has passed through our Protege program and is building her guest list as we speak.
Madi loves that Mystique provides the opportunity to continue learning and growing as a stylist. The paddle boarding across the road is a huge perk too.
After graduating from JCI, Rachel jumped right back into training at Mystique in our in house Protege Program. Rachel’s easy going personality made her an easy fit with Mystique’s stylists. Rachel is a foiling and hairpainting wizard and blows our minds with her innovative approach.
Rachel grew up in a large family which serves her well at Mystique as she loves the team of women she gets to work with daily. The environment and team atmosphere grabbed her attention from the start, but familiarizing herself with the guests is what keeps her going. She’s a real people person and thrives on a good consultation - but don’t worry if you’re a book worm or a Netflix enthusiast, she’ll leave you be while creating magic with your locks.
We are looking for positive, upbeat stylists who have successfully completed their education at hair school. You must be the kind of person who likes to work hard, works well within a team, and is consistently looking to better yourself.
We want someone with passion and a flair for creativity who can make colour pop and curls bounce. We want someone who can cut the perfect pixieand edge the perfect fringe.
Mystique takes top graduates from schools around the world and offers them an extremely thorough post-graduate program, giving them the opportunity to work alongside our stylists with the goal of forming them into the nation's most talented artists. This ensures that by the time these students hit the floor they have skills and a portfolio that far surpasses that of their competition.
A Mystique Protégé has gone through extensive education, including advanced cutting and coloring, as well as countless hours working alongside the mystique team. Protégés working at Mystique are in the final stages of their education and are under the direct supervision of a master educator.
