A top of the class graduate of the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Toronto, JoAnne has been in the hair industry for 20+ years. From the onset of entering her profession, her attention to detail has been impeccable. Her talents were recognized while she worked under Don Bewley from Eufora and are illustrated in the many styles that have been featured in several magazines.

In 2005, JoAnne opened Color Nation Salon & Spa with her partner Michael. For JoAnne, opening Color Nation was more than just a job to go to everyday, it would become her home where she would get to do what she loved doing, with and for the people she loved dearly. JoAnne is definitely one of the most genuinely kind people in the world. She cares about her family and friends and her employees and clients. Many describe her as “everyone’s favorite hairdresser and friend” and all of her clients look forward to their regular visits with her because they know they will leave feeling loved and looking fantastic.

JoAnne is considered a leader in the salon industry not only for her exceptional skill set but also because she realizes the importance of sharing her knowledge with younger hair stylists. She leads Color Nation’s education and develop initiatives and says that “even when she is teaching a class, she is learning from her students.” While many of her peers refer to her as a master of her craft, she very much believes in continuously developing her own abilities and skills and loves learning new techniques as well.

JoAnne’s favorite hair products right now include anything that she gets to use when styling the models at the many fashion shows she is requested to participate in. This includes Bumble and bumble’s holding spray that holds the shape and tames any strays but can be flexible and workable, if desired. She also swears by Pureology’s Pure Volume line which is formulated for fine-colour treated hair.

Her kind heart and bubbly personality is what JoAnne’s family and friends love most about her.  JoAnne and her boyfriend Andy love to travel and spend the summer playing volleyball with their closest friends.  Most dear to her heart though are her two children, Ben and Rowan.
