Model: Sonia Resendes
Sonia has been a hairstylist for 11 years. Her career started in Vancouver. She then decided to make her way to London, England where she worked at a boutique salon in South Kensington.
London is known for its unconventional hair techniques which involve disconnected cuts and bold color streaming through accentuating a hair cuts shape. That interested Sonia and she uses that ability to look at her clients hair every time with fresh innovative ideas. While in London she attended the Vidal Sassoon Advanced Academy to take extra courses focusing on color and cut.
Sonia likes to look at the whole picture and always picks a color and cut that harmonizes together. After graduating the Academy she decided to to relocate to Toronto and joined the well-known Holts Salon and Spa.
Preceding her trip to Toronto she then moved to Los Angeles and decided to hone in on her ability to create big glamorous hair. She also attended the Vidal Sassoon academy in Santa Monica taking a Master course and learning the latest cut and color techniques.
Outside the salon you can find her working on photo shoots and fashion shows. She’s worked with numerous designers such as Oscar De La Renta, Yves St Laurent, Rag and Bone, Alice and Olivia, and Roberto Rodriguez.
