Hair Style

Our Remarkable Team

Yusaf Tao,
Master Stylist | Owner

Yusaf never goes to work; he goes into the studio to meet friends and share his craft. Yusaf trained at Rusk in Scotland, and Vidal Sassoon in London.

Over the past 20 years, Yusaf has earned the loyalty of many clients, most of them returning to his business as friends. His personality is infectious and you know you’re in good hands when you sit in his chair. In his own words, he explains his style as natural, timeless and easy maintenance.

Here is what Yusaf has to say about his service and expertise:

“My inspiration comes from my clients. Based on their hair type, face shape and lifestyle. I try to bring out the natural beauty in my clients and a good cut does just that.”

Kristen began her fulltime hairdressing career in 2017  after moving to London England. She studied at then London Hair Academy and did some apprenticing at other salons in London and Vancouver like Sukis, before making her way to Yusaf Hair Studio. Kristen’s passion for hair started at a very young age cutting and colouring for family and friends, styling friends before a night out starting back in 2005.

Kristen is very knowledgeable about the products carried in our salon and is happy to help you pick the best products for your hair. Kristen was working in finance for almost 10 years previously and decided she was ready to help people feel and look their best, so made the big change and we are happy she did.
